Linebacker Tavares Gooden and wide receiver James Hardy are among 25 players cut by the Baltimore Ravens, who also placed offensive tackle Ramon Harewood on injured reserve to reach the 55-man limit.

The Ravens on Saturday also terminated the contract of linebacker Prescott Burgess.

Gooden is a former third-round draft pick from the University of Miami. Harewood is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his ankle.

Hardy, a former Buffalo Bills second-round draft pick, got off to a good start in training camp but missed much of the preseason with a chronic hamstring problem.

Burgess led the Ravens in special-teams tackles over the past two seasons. Baltimore also cut former fourth-round pick Marcus Smith, a wide receiver.
