Owen Daniels TE BAL 2 Days

Daniels caught 2-of-5 targets for seven yards in Monday's 34-27 win over the Saints.

Daniels continues to garner a decent portion of the targets in a balanced offense, but he's not getting many looks beyond 10 yards, and he offers little in terms of big-play ability. While he should bounce back to some extent in Week 13 against San Diego, the veteran tight end still has a rather limited weekly ceiling.

Daniels (knee) caught 2-of-4 targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 21-7 win over the Titans.

Joe Flacco only attempted 27 passes, with Steve and Torrey Smith combining for 15 of the targets. The two wideouts and Daniels have actually seen pretty similar target totals since Dennis Pitta (hip) went out for the season, but Daniels is largely catching dump-offs, while the Smiths (especially Torrey) are getting more shots down the field. The Ravens have also had unusually few possessions near the goal line, as the team's propensity for scoring long touchdowns has limited Daniels' opportunities to find the end zone. While that should correct to some extent later this season, Baltimore's offensive strategy does seem to encourage an odd mixture of punts and long touchdowns. Daniels' knee does not seem to be a concern, despite his presence on the injury report. He'll come out of the Week 11 bye with a favorable Week 12 matchup in New Orleans.

Daniels (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Daniels looked good last week, and he had no setbacks in practice this week, so he should be good to go.

Daniels (knee) caught 6-of-9 targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 43-23 loss to the Steelers.

Less than two weeks removed from minor knee surgery, Daniels mostly looked like his usual self, despite being viewed as a game-time decision. His nine targets led the team, but No. 2 tight end Crockett Gillmore hauled in a two-yard touchdown for his only catch of the game. Though he's proven to be a perfectly capable replacement for Dennis Pitta (hip), Daniels has just one touchdown over the last six games. He doesn't offer a ton of upside on a weekly basis but figures to find the end zone more often than he has thus far.

Daniels (knee) is active for Sunday night's game against the Steelers.

Daniels will give it a go Sunday night, though it's unclear how close to 100 percent he will be in the contest, coming off a knee scope that sidelined him for Week 8's loss to the Bengals.

Coach John Harbaugh indicated that Daniels (knee) is a game-time decision for Sunday night's game against the Steelers, the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports.

Daniels thus makes for a risky Week 9 roll, with the Ravens kicking off at 8:30 ET on Sunday. If Daniels is out, or limited at all Sunday, Crockett Gillmore would once again be in line for an expanded workload this weekend.

Daniels (knee) returned to practice Friday, the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports.

We'll have to see how the Ravens list Daniels for Sunday night's game against the Steelers, though the report notes that the tight end -- who is bouncing back from a knee scope -- was moving well at practice on Friday.

Daniels (knee) participated in individual drills during Wednesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.

Daniels sat out this past Sunday's game against the Bengals after getting his left knee scoped, but his presence on the field Wednesday suggests that the tight end has a chance to return to action this weekend against the Steelers, though such an outcome can't be counted on at this stage.

Daniels has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals after getting his left knee scoped, the Baltimore Sun reports. "As the week went on, his knee wasn't progressing the way we wanted it to, so we went ahead and did a cleanup procedure," coach John Harbaugh noted of Daniels' knee issue on Friday.

As a result, Crockett Gillmore will start at tight end for the Ravens in Daniels' place on Sunday, at a minimum. While Harbaugh won't rule out Daniels for Week 9's game against the Steelers just yet, he acknowledged that that the veteran tight end will be week-to-week beyond this weekend's contest.

Daniels (knee) is not practicing Friday, the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports.

Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said Thursday that Daniels is "fine," though the tight end's absence Friday - his third straight day of missed practice - seems to cast some doubt on Kubiak's analysis. The Ravens will release their official injury designations later Friday.
