The Ravens officially brought running back Justin Forsett’s season to an end on Friday.
Forsett broke his arm when Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald slammed him to the turf during last Sunday’s Ravens victory and the Ravens have now formally added him to injured reserve. Forsett ends the year with 641 yards and two touchdowns on 151 carries and another 153 yards on 31 catches. He’s signed for the next two seasons with base salaries of $3 million.
Forsett’s roster spot will be filled by defensive end Brent Urban, who was placed on injured reserve with the designation to return at the start of the regular season. Urban, a fourth-round pick in 2014, tore his biceps during training camp.
Coach John Harbaugh said earlier this week that Urban would be activated, but that he wasn’t sure if the lineman would be in the lineup for Monday’s game against the Browns.
“He’s done a really good job,” Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun. “He’s worked hard, he looks good. It’s going to be exciting to see him in real action at some point in time, and see how he does because he hasn’t played that much. But he’s practiced very well.”
Urban actually hasn’t played at all for the Ravens in the regular season. He missed all of 2014 with a knee injury so he’ll be making his NFL debut when he does get the nod from Harbaugh.
