The Baltimore Ravens will play against the Chicago Bears on August 2, 2018 in Canton, Ohio for the annual Hall of Fame Game, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun.

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year. The two players were announced as Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees on February 3.

In addition, Baltimore will begin training camp a week early, due to the extra preseason game. Instead of just four preseason games, the Ravens will have five games to prepare for the regular season.

With injuries to quarterback Joe Flacco and wide receiver Breshad Perriman, both players haven’t been able to participate in training camp. However, with the extra week looming, it could give the two another chance to build a rapport, barring an injury.

As for other young wide receivers like Tim White and Quincy Adeboyejo, this camp could prove to be a stepping stone into a bigger role.
