Defensive Tackle Terrence Cody Activated, Phillip Supernaw Cut


The Ravens have cleared the way for defensive tackle Terrence Cody to make his 2014 debut against the Tennessee Titans.

Cody was moved to the active roster from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list after returning to practice three weeks ago. To make room for Cody on the active squad, the Ravens cut tight end Phillip Supernaw.

Activating Cody was just one of the transactions the Ravens made Tuesday, as they also cut cornerback Chykie Brown and promoted rookie Tramain Jacobs from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Cody opened the year on the PUP list after having hip surgery this offseason, which was the second year in a row that he needed offseason hip surgery. The procedures were on different hips.

After seeing Cody on the practice field for three weeks, the Ravens wanted to get him on the active squad.

"He's chomping at the bit," Head Coach John Harbaugh said when Cody first returned to practice in Week 7.

Getting Cody back will give the Ravens some additional depth up front. Cody will back up Haloti Ngata and Brandon Williams, and his strength has historically been taking on blockers to clog up the running game.

During his rehab from surgery, Cody also made an effort to slim down and get in better shape. The Ravens noticed a difference in Cody, and he feels better carrying around less weight.

"Being light this year and having my body fat down, it's going to be good on my joints and my muscle and my hips," Cody said.

Now Cody will get his first opportunity to show how he's improved and can play an important role for this defense.

"I want to show that I'm in shape, and that I'm moving around a lot better," Cody said. "I also want to show that I can still dominate."
