Report: Danny Woodhead to miss 4-6 weeks with hamstring injury

AP

Ravens running back Danny Woodhead is set to miss significant time for the third time in the last four seasons.

Woodhead left Sunday’s victory over the Bengals in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return to the game. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Woodhead won’t be returning for several more games either.

Rapoport reports that Woodhead is expected to miss 4-6 weeks as a result of the injury. He missed 14 games while with the Chargers last season due to a torn ACL and 13 games during the 2014 season with a fractured fibula.

We got a glimpse of the role Woodhead was going to play in the Baltimore offense as he caught three passes from Joe Flacco before heading to the locker room. The Ravens went with Terrance West and Buck Allen the rest of the way against Cincinnati and it looks they’ll be the lead backs for the near future as well. Jeremy Langford and Alex Collins are on the team’s practice squad if they opt to add more depth.

  1. Love Woodhead and sorry to see him hurt.

    He did a hilarious bit right after he was signed with the Pats. Looked about 17 years old and they put him in the Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Patriots place in a Dick’s employee shirt and had him in the Pats jersey area. People kept coming up and asking where the Brady or Gronk jerseys were and he’d say “what about a Danny Woodhead jersey?” Universally the response was “who?” not knowing they were talking to an actual Patriot.

  2. Too bad. He’s fun to watch when healthy. I still remember that game against the Colts when he scored a long TD and then leveled the returner on the ensuing kickoff.

  3. another inury prone player, nothing new for us Ravens fans.Langford may be the answer but he is going to need time to learn the play book. Matt Jones, Ryan Matthews are out there.

    Loved that skit! I’ve re-watched it a dozen times since the ravens signed him. My favorite response has to be the woman that knew who Woodhead was, but unknowingly said to his face that he’s too small and asked where the Wes Welkah (thick NE accent) jerseys were. Anyone who hasn’t seen this skit needs to look it up.
