The Ravens have officially signed veteran outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy, who is on the field at the start of practice Wednesday.

Van Noy is starting on the practice squad, which means he can be activated for up to three games before he would have to be moved to the 53-man roster to continue suiting up on Sundays.

It remains to be seen how fast Van Noy can get up to speed, but the banged-up Ravens defense could use him soon.

Van Noy visited the Ravens in July and did not sign, but mounting injuries at outside linebacker have changed the picture in Baltimore.

Odafe Oweh (ankle) did not play in Sunday’s loss to the Colts and David Ojabo left the game after four snaps with an ankle injury. Tyus Bowser (knee) has been on the non-football injury list since the start of training camp and cannot return until Week 5 at the earliest. Rookie Malik Hamm is also on injured reserve and not eligible to return for another week.

Rookie fourth-round outside linebacker Tavius Robinson played 55 defensive snaps and Jeremiah Moon played 46 in his first career NFL game Sunday versus the Colts.

Van Noy, 32, has been a consistent pass rusher throughout his career with at least five sacks in each of the past four seasons. A versatile and productive linebacker with extensive experience in multiple systems, Van Noy spent last season with the Los Angeles Chargers, starting 13 games and notching 46 tackles, five sacks, three passes defensed, and nine quarterback hits.

Before the Chargers, he played for the Patriots, Dolphins and Lions. Van Noy built a reputation for being strong in pass coverage during his days in New England. He had 10 passes defensed for the Patriots in 2021 and won Super Bowls with them in 2016 and 2018.
