The Ravens brought back special teams standout Prescott Burgess on Tuesday. It was the sixth time Burgess has been added to the active roster since the team drafted him in the sixth round of the 2007 draft. He has been waived three times in his career, traded once and placed on injured reserve twice in his five NFL seasons. Contrary to popular belief, Burgess does not live in an RV that remains parked outside the Castle at all times. A player the Ravens have to have but can't stop getting rid of, Burgess has an interesting story, one that is a great example of what life in the NFL is like for players who have permanent residence on the roster bubble.

The Ravens are the only team to have made the playoffs in each of the past four seasons. That's a credit to G.M. Ozzie Newsome, who has given coach John Harbaugh enough talent to mold this team into a contender. As we close in on the 2012 NFL draft, we'll take a look at how the Ravens have fared in recent drafts. It's too soon to give a fair evaluation from the 2010 and 2011 classes, but three years of NFL service time is enough for us to grade their 2007, 2008 and 2009 classes.

Prescott Burgess, a sixth-round pick, was the second linebacker taken by the Ravens in the NFL draft in April, selected just two rounds after the organization chose Antwan Barnes out of Florida International. A two-year starter at outside linebacker for Michigan, Burgess impressed observers yesterday when he tackled running back Willis McGahee, forcing a fumble. What did you see on that hit of McGahee? The ball carrier was right there. I just had to make a name for myself and show them that I'm going to make my presence [known]

The Ravens announced today that they have waived cornerback Bryan McCann and promoted outside linebacker Chavis Williams from the practice squad to their 53-man roster. Williams (6 feet 3, 227 pounds) signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in July. He played four seasons at Alabama, making 17 tackles in 33 career games. The Ravens' linebacker depth has been challenged with Prescott Burgess going on season-ending injured reserve with a torn abdominal muscle Tuesday, and Dannell Ellerbe sidelined with a hamstring injury.

The Ravens placed linebacker and special teams performer Prescott Burgess on season-ending injured reserve, the team announced today. Burgess tore an abdominal muscle in Sunday's 30-27 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, according to his agent Tom Kleine. Burgess, who has primarily been playing on special teams, saw action Sunday with the regular defense when middle linebacker Ray Lewis exited the game four four plays in the first quarter with a shoulder stinger. It was a difficult year for the former Ravens' sixth-round pick who was cut twice and brought back both times.

The Ravens made a good move by putting cornerback Domonique Foxworth on injured reserve. The knee injury and surgery Foxworth suffered at the beginning of the 2010 season basically takes two years to heal. Some players can come back early, but that's with the aid of offseason minicamps and being able to work with members of the medical staff.   Foxworth and defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano said Foxworth had made good progress in his recovery until the NFL owners lockout, and then he fell behind.

The Ravens just announced that they have placed cornerback Domonique Foxworth on season-ending injured reserve. To take his place on the roster, they will re-sign outside linebacker Prescott Burgess. Foxworth has been struggling to come back from knee surgery. He tore his right anterior cruciate ligament on the eve of training camp last year. After struggling against the Tennessee Titans in Week Two, Foxworth was inactive for the Ravens' 37-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams last Sunday.

With ongoing concerns about the status of Dannell Ellerbe's hamstring, the Ravens have re-signed linebacker Prescott Burgess , who they drafted out of Michigan in the sixth round in 2007. It will be Burgess' third stint with the Ravens this season and the fourth of his career. He led the Ravens in special teams tackles in both 2009 and 2010.   To make room on the 53-man roster for Burgess, the Ravens waived offensive tackle Mark LeVoir who was in his first season with the team.

SO-SO Quarterback Kyle Boller got off to a good start with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Demetrius Williams in the end zone and another long pass that Leo Bookman caught during one-on-one wide receiver-cornerback drills. But during 11-on-11 drills, Boller hurt his right hand when center Chris Chester snapped the ball too early. Three snaps later, Boller tried to step up in the pocket to avoid a pass rush and bumped into tight end Kendrick Ballantyne. BIG TACKLE The hit of that day was registered by cornerback Derrick Martin, who leveled P.J. Daniels as the running back tried to turn the right corner at the line of scrimmage.

David Reed has not yet recaptured the magic that helped him lead the NFL in kick returns last season as a rookie, but that hasn't dissuaded special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg from sticking with Reed as the Ravens' primary kick returner. “You can look at the stats and see that he's not, but he's close,” Rosburg said during his weekly briefing Thursday. “But more than that, we're looking at the whole unit rather than just David. The results of David's returns are a product of what happens up front.
