After the Ravens lost J.K. Dobbins for the season, head coach John Harbaugh said he had “full confidence” in the ability of the other backs on hand to carry the load.

Losing another running back for the year may be pushing the team toward adding outside help. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Justice Hill tore his Achilles in practice.

The report came shortly after the league’s daily wire brought word that the team worked out veterans Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman. Elijah Holyfield, who spent offseason time with the Eagles this year, also worked out for the Ravens.

Todd Gurley also visited the team earlier this year and they could revisit that option with Gus Edwards and Ty'Son Williams currently left as the only two backs on the active roster.

  1. As a fan of another AFC North team. I would welcome Le’Veon Bell back to the division.Almost like old times…

  2. At this point we will be signing someone even if it is only short term – amazing how quick injuries can send a team fishing for players! We lost our best PS Running Back to another team when he could now be on the Ravens active roster.

  3. Gus Edwards is a top 15 RB. Without the original talent around him, will it show more or less?

    Good question. Roman’s offense and the roster is tailored to the run game. It will make a running back a step above where they actually are – a below average is average, an average RB is above average, etc. I feel like Gus is average getting the advantage of being above average in this scheme and he will be consistent as long as he doesn’t wear down. Based on what’s left on the market they are below average (because they are available) so in our offense they’ll get a boost to average production and give Edwards a rest now and then to keep the RB rotation going.

  5. Why don’t all you Lamar haters go ask your team why their starting QB isn’t 30-6 in the regular season as a starter.
