The Ravens haven't made their final roster cuts, but released three draft picks in return specialist Lamont Brightful, who lost a competition with undrafted rookie B.J. Sams, cornerback Javin Hunter and wide receiver Ron Johnson. Offensive tackle Eric Dumas, tight end Nick Eller, cornerback Rashad Holman, linebacker Brandon Rager and safety Dave Revill were released, too.
The Ravens have until Sunday to make their final roster cuts to get down to 53 players, meaning nine players will be released. The battle for the final roster spot will be waged between quarterback Josh Harris, receiver Clarence Moore and defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin.
It's possible the roster moves might not be announced until Monday, though.
Wide receiver Devard Darling said he'll learn Monday whether he'll be placed on injured reserve because of a nagging quadriceps injury that's a strain, not a partial tear.
He said an MRI showed fluid in the muscle, but was surprised that IR is a possibility for him.
