Nebraska native Danny Woodhead released by Baltimore Ravens

They also have a lot of running back depth, and on Tuesday they loosened things up a little on both fronts by releasing Danny Woodhead.

Overall, Woodhead registered 56 rushing yards and 33 receptions for 200 yards. Baltimore never really figured out how to properly use Woodhead, and part of that problem traces back to the hamstring injury that kept him sidelined for most of the first half of the season.

The 33-year-old Woodhead appeared in only eight games last season due to a hamstring injury suffered in Week 1. He didn't return until November 19.

Bonaventure comes into the game with a 25-7 record, coming off a loss in the Atlantic 10 tournament to Davidson. The survivor will travel to Dallas where it will take on sixth-seeded Florida in the first round on Thursday.

Howard, 30, struggled early last season after getting a late start with his new team and having to work himself into better shape following an offseason spent rehabbing from shoulder surgery.

Now, Howard is gone and it wouldn't be surprising if Jensen leaves as well. However, the Ravens will likely decline his option about seven months after giving him a three-year, $15 million deal.

The Ravens will reportedly have a new starting right tackle in 2018. Howard did an admirable job replacing Rick Wagner, but he ultimately proved to be a one-year stop gap at right tackle. Kenneth Dixon is set to return from a knee injury that cost him the entire 2017 season, as he also served a six-game suspension while on IR. Javorius "Buck" Allen (at least 45 receptions in two of the last three seasons) remains in the mix as well. The Ravens, though, may have to fill openings at center and right tackle.
