Marshal Yanda BAL 11 Months
John Eisenberg of the Ravens' official website mentions RG Marshal Yanda as a potential salary cap casualty.
However, Eisenberg made it clear that he doesn't believe the Ravens will cut Yanda. Baltimore had massive offensive-line issues in 2013, but Yanda wasn't part of the problem. The 29-year-old graded out as a top-16 guard at Pro Football Focus and is very athletic. GM Ozzie Newsome needs to address the center and tackle positions on his front-five unit. Cutting Yanda would only save the Ravens a little under $2 million against the 2014 salary cap.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.
He's sitting out OTAs and minicamp, but will be ready for training camp. Despite myriad injuries entering year seven of his career -- he's undergone thigh and shoulder surgeries and two knee operations -- Yanda continues to play at an All-Pro level. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall guard in 2012.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (ankle) expects to rejoin the starting lineup for Sunday's Wild-Card round game versus the Colts.
"I'm playing," said Yanda, "and I'm going to be going 100 percent on Sunday." The All-Pro caliber guard sustained a high-ankle sprain in Week 14, so take his "100 percent" claim with a grain of salt.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (ankle) isn't practicing this week, and is in a walking boot.
He has a high-ankle sprain. Yanda will miss Sunday's game against the Broncos, and should be considered week-to-week. Jah Reid and Bobbie Williams should be the Ravens' starting guards against Denver.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda suffered a sprained ankle in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Redskins.
It looks like a multi-week injury. Yanda was sporting crutches and a walking boot on his way out of the stadium. Baltimore's best offensive lineman, Yanda grades out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 guard this season. His absence would be unwelcome news for Ray Rice's fantasy owners.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda restructured his contract in order to give the team some cap relief.
He dropped his 2012 salary to $700,000 and converted the remainder of his previous $4.5 million base into a signing bonus, which will be prorated through 2015. Yanda signed a five-year, $32.5 million blockbuster contract last summer. He proceeded to grade as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 guard in the entire league.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda underwent surgery to address compartment syndrome in his thigh on December 24.
Yanda played through the compartment syndrome and a rib injury late in the season. "My ribs are feeling good and my leg is feeling good, too," said Yanda. "The bye week was huge. I'm going to practice today." Despite playing at less than 100 percent, Yanda graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 overall guard in 2011, behind only Evan Mathis (Eagles) and Carl Nicks (Saints).

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda played in Week 17 through badly bruised ribs and cartilage "that has separated from the bone."
"There is no one tougher than Marshal," said coach John Harbaugh. "That is a reflection of our whole team. He optimizes that, certainly." Yanda made his first career Pro Bowl in 2011. He has a first-round bye to heal up.

Marshall Yanda (ribs) is not expected to play in next week's game against the Bengals.
Yanda was forced from Week 16 with ''bruised ribs'' and is looking like a long shot to be active with Andre Gurode capable of filling in at right guard. A Saturday MRI confirmed the Ravens will also lose kick returner David Reed to a season-ending ACL injury, and starting CB Cary Williams and ILB Dannell Ellerbe both sustained concussions and did not return.
