Ravens safety Matt Elam continues to see playing time decrease


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Ravens safety Matt Elam played a season-low 15 snaps during the Week 10 win against Tennessee, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The former first-round pick has been overtaken on the depth chart by safety Will Hill and it doesn’t appear Elam will return to his starting role. Elam has a league leading 12 missed tackles for defensive backs.

"I feel like it's going well, but other people probably think different," Elam said, per the Baltimore Sun. "I've got to fine-tune the small things and some technique work and keep on improving. I got to continue to stack days and get better."


Ravens SS Matt Elam critical of his recent performances


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Ravens strong safety Matt Elam is his own worst critic. And he is not happy about his recent play.

Elam has allowed 14 receptions on 17 targets for 249 yards this season. Included were two catches, one of which resulting in a touchdown, in two targets to Buccaneers wideout Louis Murphy on Sunday.

"I'm not pleased with the last couple games at all," he told the Baltimore Sun. "That's why I'm working to get better every week to fine-tune the small things, so I won't have to say that about the next few weeks."

The difficulty of his task will be heightened in Week 7 against Atlanta, which features premier wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White.


Ravens to have their probables Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Ravens will have their probable players Week 6 against the Bucs.

Matt Elam, Daryl Smith and Jeremy Zuttah should all suit up against Tampa Bay. Elam was listed with a shoulder injury. Smith is dealing with a knee issue, while Zuttah has an ankle injury.


Ravens list eight players on final injury report


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) The Ravens listed eight players on their final injury report Friday leading up to Week 6 against the Buccaneers.

Defensive lineman Chris Canty (wrist), defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (knee), and tackle Eugene Monroe (knee) have all been ruled out, while wide receiver Marlon Brown (pelvis) was the only player ruled doubtful on the list.

Meanwhile, guard Kelechi Osemele (knee) was deemed questionable, while safety Matt Elam (shoulder), linebacker Daryl Smith (knee) and guard Jeremy Zuttah (ankle) were ruled probable for Sunday.


Play of Ravens S Matt Elam defended by coordinator


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees has defended safety Matt Elam despite some negative numbers. Elam is allowing 76.9 percent of passes thrown his way to be completed. He is allowing an average of 21.4 yards per completion and is the second-worst safety in the NFL in coverage, per Pro Football Focus.

Pees, however, praised his work as a nickel back in Week 4 against Carolina. "Last week, I thought [Elam] played real well," he told ESPN. "We put him in the slot and nickel with very few reps against a good quarterback. ... there were two passes I don't know who would've defended them. He just put it on the money.

"Sometimes you got to say, 'Hey, that's the way it was.' We do a lot of stuff, and to throw a guy in a new position and learn it overnight, that's tough to do. My hat's off to Matt."

The first-round pick in 2013 has just one interception and four pass breakups in 20 games in the NFL.


Matt Elam expected to move to strong safety


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) The Ravens' Matt Elam is expected to move from free safety to strong safety for his second season, reports the Baltimore Sun. Current strong safety James Ihedigbo is a free agent.

Elam had 77 tackles, three passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and an interception while playing all 16 games. The paper expects the hard-hitting Elam "to make a much bigger impact" at strong safety, his more natural position.


Ravens DST feasts on Matthew Stafford's mistakes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) The Ravens DST intercepted Matthew Stafford three times in the Week 15 win at Detroit, holding the high-octane Lions to 16 points. Defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson, linebacker Daryl Smith and safety Matt Elam picked off Stafford in the second half.

Smith has three interceptions this year, tied for the team lead, after snagging Stafford's ill-advised pass over the middle. Smith added a sack, giving him 4 1/2 this season.

Baltimore got a lift from the return of outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil, who had two quarterback hits and two tackles. The Ravens DST faces another tough matchup Week 16 vs. the Patriots.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
