Ravens RB Gus Edwards (knee) wrote on Instagram Thursday that he's "doing great and very close" in his return from last year's torn ACL. Edwards is out for at least the first 4 weeks on the PUP list, but it sounds like there's a chance he's ready come Week 5. For now, we're still only stashing him in fantasy leagues with an IR spot.

RB Kenyan Drake is signing with the Ravens, according to insider Jordan Schultz. Drake was dumped by HC Josh McDaniels and the new Raiders regime a little over a week ago. He turns 29 in January and, while he remained effective as a pass catcher last year, he averaged just 4.0 yards per carry and ranked 42nd among 77 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades. Drake is an insurance policy for a Ravens team still waiting for RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards to get over their 2021 knee injuries. We'll see whether Dobbins is ready for Week 1. If not, the Ravens figure to roll with Drake and Mike Davis.

The Ravens have placed RB Gus Edwards (ACL) on the Reserve/PUP list. That means he'll miss at least the 1st 4 games of the regular season. His absence leaves room for J.K. Dobbins to operate as likely the clear backfield leader at least early in the season. We wouldn't be surprised, though, if Baltimore avoids overworking Dobbins off his own ACL tear. Mike Davis currently appears headed for the #2 RB role early in the year, though we'll see how that sorts out over the next couple of weeks.

The Ravens released RB Corey Clement. He lasted just a few weeks with the team. With RB Gus Edwards (knee) likely to open the season on the PUP list, the Ravens are currently slated to head into Week 1 with RBs J.K. Dobbins, Mike Davis, Justice Hill and Tyler Badie.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh tried to paint an optimistic picture of RB Gus Edwards' rehab in a Wednesday appearance on SiriusXM radio but basically conceded that Edwards won't be ready for the start of the season. "Gus is doing really well. He's kind of a patient rehab guy," Harbaugh said. "I don't know that he'll be the first week, but before the season's over I think he's going to be roaring and ready to go." We'll continue to monitor Edwards' progress. But, at this point, he's not worth a pick in most fantasy drafts.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) passed his physical and was activated from the PUP list on Monday. ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Dobbins is now "on track" to play Week 1, while NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Dobbins has "a chance" for the opener. We'll see who proves right there, but Dobbins is clearly trending in the right direction. RB Gus Edwards (knee) remains on the PUP list, which seems to be confirmation that he's behind Dobbins in his rehab.

The Ravens PR staff released the 1st "unofficial" depth chart of the year Friday, with RB Mike Davis the top active player at the position. That still slots him behind J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who remain on the PUP. Justice Hill, Corey Clement, Nate McCrary and rookie Tyler Badie follow, in that order. These depth charts are notoriously unreliable, especially ahead of preseason debuts for nearly all teams. We'll be watching to see if Badie -- in particular -- works in earlier once the exhibition contests get rolling. In the meantime, Davis is worth considering as a low-owned, end-of-draft option for best-ball tournament rosters.

Reports on Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins' recovery from last August's left knee injury have been mixed. But Pro Football Focus insider Doug Kyed hears that Dobbins is doing "amazing" in his rehab and that "there doesn’t appear to be any concern that he’ll be ready for the season." RB Gus Edwards, meanwhile, is "deemed questionable" for Week 1 as he recovers from his own torn ACL. Both guys remain on the PUP list as of today.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh admitted that RB Gus Edwards (ACL) is in question for Week 1. Edwards was recently placed on the PUP list, and his return to practice isn’t imminent. He’s not someone we’re looking to buy the dip on in fantasy drafts.

The Ravens have placed RB Gus Edwards on the training-camp PUP list. That's no shock, given Edwards is coming off an ACL tear. He has reportedly been trending toward being ready for the season. We'll watch the status of Baltimore's expected #2 back through the summer.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that there's "certainly a chance" that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is not ready for Week 1 of the regular season and that he might even need "a couple weeks" after that. There reportedly has been no setback with Dobbins' recovery from the ACL tear, but the team plans to not rush him back. Gus Edwards -- recovering from his own ACL tear -- "seems like he should be on track" for the opener. We'll certainly watch the status of each player through training camp and preseason. We haven't been close to drafting Dobbins at cost so far this year, though. Rookie Tyler Badie and ex-Falcons RB Mike Davis could factor in early as well, if Dobbins can't go.

Update: Dobbins responded to the Rapoport report on Twitter by saying, "I might not even go on PUP because that's how good my rehab is going and I'm damn sure going to be ready for week 1." We'll see what's true as we get closer to September.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said he’s “hopeful” RBs Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins will be ready for the regular season. Harbaugh also said that they're “on track,” so Week 1 is realistic barring a setback. Both guys will be ~1 year removed from ACL surgery come the regular season, so the question is just how much action they see in training camp. Neither player has practiced so far this spring.

An MRI confirmed a torn ACL for Ravens RB Gus Edwards, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So Edwards, like teammates J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill, will miss the entire 2021 season. That leaves Baltimore with RBs Ty'Son Williams and Trenton Cannon on the active roster and RBs Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman on the practice squad. Williams is a good bet to lead the way in Monday night's opener vs. the Raiders. We'll see where the backfield goes beyond that.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards left practice Thursday after suffering a "potentially serious" knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the team fears he tore an ACL. Baltimore actually cut the practice short after Edwards and CB Marcus Peters injured knees on consecutive plays. Both are heading in for testing, and we'll certainly keep watch for updates. If the testing confirms that fear, Edwards would be the 3rd RB the Ravens have lost for the season, following J.K. Dobbins (ACL) and Justice Hill (Achilles'). That would leave Ty'Son Williams and Le'Veon Bell to potentially lead the backfield in Week 1 and beyond. Baltimore also recently signed RB Trenton Cannon, but he's more of a special-teamer. Grabbing Bell off waivers where possible suddenly seems like a solid plan.
