Ravens sign Le’Veon Bell to 53-man roster

USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens want to see more of Le’Veon Bell.

After Baltimore used his second of two available standard elevations for Sunday’s win over the Chargers, the team has signed Bell to the 53-man roster.

Bell signed with the Ravens’ practice squad in early September, following the rash of injuries to Baltimore’s running backs room. He’s rushed for 29 yards on 12 carries, scoring his first touchdown as a Raven on Sunday.

While Latavius Murray has been Baltimore’s lead back, he was sidelined by an ankle injury in Sunday’s game. That could give Bell a larger role in the offense.

The Ravens also have Devonta Freeman and Ty’Son Williams at the position.

Quarterback Lamar Jackson leads the team with 392 yards rushing.

Baltimore is No. 4 with 931 yards on the ground.

  1. As a Ravens fan I still love that the Ravens are trotting out Murray, Freeman, and Bell. If someone said this would happen back in 2016 we’d all think they were nuts. If these past their prime guys can contribute in a RB friendly system in a rotation then lets go!

    Kudos to DeCosta and the coaching staff for figuring out how to survive after losing their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd RBs to season ending injuries.

  2. Fortunately for the Ravens, unless they screwed up Bell’s contract negotiations, he is on a week to week basis with no guarantees.

    Maybe that will motivate him to actually try to do his job.

  3. Baltimore is 4th in the league with all the injuries they’ve had? Amazing. They are truly a balanced offense now.

  4. Wow. He is only averaging 2.4 yards per carry. That’s even with Defenses having to account for the QB possibly running.
