Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins carted off with knee injury

USA TODAY Sports

As the Ravens go for a record winning streak in meaningless games, they’ve sustained a potentially very meaningful injury.

Running back J.K. Dobbins left via cart after suffering a knee injury in the first quarter of Saturday night’s game against Washington.

Dobbins got sandwiched between cornerback Jimmy Moreland and linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk after catching a screen pass. Moreland’s shoulder collided with Dobbins’s knee.

He initially left the field on his feet, but without putting any weight on his left leg. After a visit to the medical tent, Dobbins was carted to the locker room.

Dobbins rushed for 805 yards in 15 games as a rookie; his development made veteran Mark Ingram II expendable. This year, Dobbins is expected to form the nucleus of a rushing attack with quarterback Lamar Jackson and running back Gus Edwards.

For now, the situation seems ominous. We’ll find out soon enough whether Dobbins will miss extended time.

  1. As a cards fan I was glad their game got canceled. Only hope I have with preseason is NO INJURIES

  2. Yep that one hurts. Should have seen how durable he was before screwing Ingram out of his playing time and potential earnings.

    It is like karma here.

  3. Harbaugh is going to be really pissed if they don’t win this game. The prolific preseason title/win record is on the line.

  4. Not only first quarter but the first drive. He probably was only going to be in for that one and he was looking great until that point.

    Unlucky, but it could just as easily been the first game of the season. Dobbins really had a nose for the end zone and that can’t be replaced, but they’re fortunate to have the best red zone threat in the NFL touching the ball at every snap.

  5. What’s the point of caring about a preseason win streak ? It literally means nothing. Nobody cares, and it doesnt matter. Now key players are going down for pointless games.

  6. He’s young and young is usually rubbery. I hope he’s alright. Injuries suck for all players.

    This is the kind of thing you get when Harbaugh is your head coach. That and using a RB as your QB

  8. When I first saw a Ravens Running Back had been injured I was worried it was Lamar — still sorry to Dobbins hurt but much less of a blow than if they lost their Jackson.
