Returns to practice

Ricard (hip) is practicing Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Ricard missed the early portion of training camp while recovering from offseason hip surgery, but he's now back on the practice field. The veteran fullback will have just under a month to ramp up his workload before Baltimore's regular-season opener against Las Vegas on Sept. 13.

Recovering from hip surgery

Ricard is rehabbing from hip surgery undergone earlier this offseason, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Ricard is currently watching OTAs off to the side, but coach John Harbaugh spoke positively about his recovery. There doesn't appear to be any real reason to worry about Ricard's status for Week 1, and considering that he has four years of familiarity with Baltimore's scheme under his belt, missing a portion of offseason activities shouldn't impact the fullback much.

Good to go Sunday

Ricard (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Ricard opened the week as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to the knee issue, but he put in full workouts Thursday and Friday. As such, Ricard likely won't face any restrictions in the Week 16 matchup. The fullback/defensive lineman saw his most involvement in the passing game of the season in last week's win over the Jaguars, hauling in two of three targets for 10 yards.

Two catches Week 15

Ricard caught two of three targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 40-14 win over Jacksonville.

Analysis: The three targets set a season high, as the 26-year-old has the ball in his hands. Ricard has played at least 50 percent of the offensive snaps in each of the past three games and should continue to mostly operate as a blocker.

Two grabs versus Dallas

Ricard secured both of his targets for 11 yards during Tuesday's 34-17 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Ricard came off the COVID-19 list just one day prior to Tuesday's contest, but he ended up handling a season-high 55 percent of offensive snaps. Most of the fullback's workload came as a blocker, of course, but his two catches also tied a season-best mark.

Lifted from COVID list

Ricard was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

Analysis: Ricard will be available for Tuesday's game against the Cowboys. He plays a ton on offense, often logging more than 25 percent of the snaps, but the fullback rarely touches the ball.

Lands on COVID-19 list

Ricard was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

Analysis: The outbreak in Baltimore continues. Ricard has either tested positive for the virus or was in close contact with an infected person. Regardless, he won't be available for Week 12 and will need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities. The Ravens don't have another fullback on their roster.

Lands contract extension

Ricard signed a two-year contract extension with the Ravens on Tuesday, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Analysis: Ricard plays a key role in Baltimore as a fullback and depth defensive lineman. He's proven a versatile offensive weapon this season, performing well as both a blocker and pass catcher, so it's not much of a surprise to see Baltimore opting to lock him up through 2021. However, Ricard doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration.

Catches season-high three passes

Ricard caught all three of his targets for a season-high 27 yards while playing 29 of the Ravens' 72 offensive snaps (40 percent) in Sunday's 41-7 win over the Texans.

Analysis: As usual, Ricard saw snaps in all three phases of the game, but he didn't record any defensive statistics during his 12 plays on that side of the ball. Instead, he made his biggest impact as a fullback, finishing third on the team in receiving yards on the day while also bulldozing open lanes for the Ravens' ballcarriers, who racked up 263 yards on the ground. Ricard typically sees more tepid involvement as a pass catcher, so don't expect him to see enhanced involvement in the game plan in the weeks to come.

Will play Sunday

Ricard (back) is officially listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Ricard appears to have fully recovered from his back injury. The 25-year-old will draw his usual start at fullback and provide the Ravens with depth along the defensive line in Kansas City.

Sep 22, 2019 8:54 AM EST

Listed as questionable

Ricard (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Ricard was a full participant in Friday's practice, which bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday. If he's able to go, the 25-year-old will play his usual role as a fullback and defensive lineman for Baltimore.

Sep 20, 2019 12:57 PM EST

Will play Sunday

Ricard (undisclosed) is officially active for Sunday's tilt against the Dolphins.

Analysis: Ricard was dinged up leading up to Sunday, but as evidenced by this news, is all set for the regular season opener. It's likely that the 25-year-old will serve his usual dual-role as a fullback and defensive lineman for the Ravens in Week 1.
