  • Ravens' Brandon Stephens: Nabs second INT

    Stephens had seven tackles (six solo) and a five-yard interception return in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Cardinals.

    Stephens picked off Joshua Dobbs at the beginning of the two-minute warning in the second quarter on a pass intended for Michael Wilson. It led to a one-yard rushing touchdown by Gus Edwards six plays later and gave the Ravens a seven-point lead heading into halftime. Stephens doubled his 2023 interception total in Week 8 and is now third on the Ravens defense with 45 tackles this season, trailing only Roquan Smith (82) and Patrick Queen (69). Sunday also marked yet another game in which Stephens played 100 percent of the defensive snaps. He has done so in all but one game this year.

  • Ravens' Brandon Stephens: Tallies 12 tackles Sunday

    Stephens recorded 12 tackles in Sunday's 25-9 win versus Houston.

    Though not necessarily what Baltimore would like to see from a coverage-oriented defensive back, Stephens' 2023 debut certainly looked good in the box score and for fantasy managers. He's likely to see an expanded role moving forward with regular starting free safety Marcus Williams (pectoral) expected to miss extended time after a Week 1 injury.

  • Ravens' Brandon Stephens: Returns to action

    Stephens participated in Baltimore's mandatory minicamp this week, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    Stephens sat out the team's wild-card loss to the Bengals due to an illness but is now back in action. The 25-year-old began the transition from cornerback to safety earlier in the offseason after logging 37 tackles (31 solo) in 15 games during the previous campaign. The 2021 third-round pick will likely backup Marcus Williams and Kyle Hamilton as well as see time on special teams this coming season.

  • Ravens' Brandon Stephens: Moving to safety

    Stephens is expected to transition to the safety position this summer, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    Coach John Harbaugh told reporters that Stephens will be making the transition from cornerback to safety this offseason. The young defensive back is heading into his third year after being a Day 2 pick in the NFL Draft. His best season was his rookie year, when he started 11 games thanks to a litany of injuries to the team's secondary, totaling 78 tackles and four pass breakups. Last season, he started only four games for the Ravens, but he still accumulated seven pass deflections. Baltimore needs the depth at safety after trading Chuck Clark to the Jets during the offseason.

  • Ravens' Brandon Stephens: Ruled out for wild-card matchup

    Stephens (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Bengals.

    Stephens became ill ahead of the Ravens' Week 18 matchup against the Bengals and was admitted to a hospital in Cincinnati, where he stayed for a few days. The 2021 third-round pick returned to the team Wednesday, but he won't be available for the playoff rematch against the Bengals.

  • Ravens' Brandon Stephens: Back with team after illness

    Stephens (illness) has returned to Baltimore after being transported to a Cincinnati hospital Sunday.

    Stephens became acutely ill ahead of the Ravens' Week 18 matchup with the Bengals and was forced to remain in Cincinnati for a couple days to receive treatment. The specific details surrounding his condition have not been released, but the cornerback is now back with the team and his status is worth monitoring for Sunday's rematch against the Bengals in the wild-card round.

  • Ravens' Brandon Stephens: In line for increased role Week 16

    Stephens should see increased defensive snaps with starting cornerback Marcus Peters (calf) ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Falcons, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official site reports.

    Stephens has recorded 24 tackles and five passes defended while playing in a reserve role over 13 games this season, but he did play at least 90 percent of defensive snaps in seven games for Baltimore's heavily-injured secondary last season. This experience should make the second-year cornerback the likeliest candidate to start in place of Peters, who could miss additional time while dealing with a mild calf strain. Brandon logged 22 tackles and two passes defended while seeing his most significant playing time over a six-game stretch in 2021, and he should have plenty of opportunities for tackles while facing Atlanta's run-centric offense Saturday.
