Ravens cut 11, including Caleb Hanie

Given that they have a short week in front of them, with the regular season opener on Thursday, the Ravens are taking care of business as early as possible.

They’ve already made most of their cuts, announcing they had waived 11 players: Running back Anthony Allen, seventh-round rookie cornerback Marc Anthony, linebacker Nigel Carr, running back Delone Carter, inside linebacker Brandon Copeland, quarterbacks Caleb Hanie and Dayne Crist, offensive tackles Jordan Devey and Rogers Gaines, center Reggie Stephens and tight end Alex Silvestro, and placed outside linebacker D.J. Bryant on injured reserve.

The Ravens had just traded for Carter in a swap of unwanted parts with the Colts, and Hanie’s departure sets the stage for them to go into the season with just two quarterbacks, Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor.

The moves get their roster to 63, meaning they still have 10 moves to make.
