The Ravens released offensive tackle Devin Tyler and defensive back David Pender from their practice squad contracts on Tuesday.
Now, Baltimore has two open spots on their developmental team to fill before Wednesday’s practice.
In addition, the Ravens are expected to release a player from their active roster soon to create space for cornerback Cary Williams, who returned from a two-game suspension this week.
Tyler joined the Ravens in training camp when there were depth issues at tackle. At 6-foot-7, 305 pounds, Tyler had the size for his position, but he was a raw prospect, having played collegiately at Temple University.
Tyler did earn second-team All Mid-American Conference honors in 2010 and spent part of the offseason with the Arizona Cardinals.
Pender, a Purdue product, was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 3 and signed to the Ravens’ practice squad shortly thereafter.
The Ravens still have quarterback Hunter Cantwell, running back Curtis Steele, linebacker Albert McClellan, guard Bryan Mattison, tight end Davon Drew and wideout Justin Harper on their practice squad.
