Ravens RB Justice Hill (foot) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Colts. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported earlier this week that it "shouldn’t result in a lengthy absence” for Hill, so we’ll see if he can make it back for Week 4. Gus Edwards should operate as Baltimore’s clear lead back this weekend, with RBs Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake behind him.

Ravens RB Justice Hill (foot) remained sidelined on Thursday. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but fantasy owners should start making other Week 3 plans. Hill's absence would turn Gus Edwards into a RB2 play vs. the Colts.

Ravens RB Justice Hill has a toe injury that "could keep him out of the Week 3 matchup with the Colts," ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Fowler adds that it "shouldn’t result in a lengthy absence." That explains why Baltimore added RB Kenyan Drake earlier today. We'll keep an eye on Hill's status, but fantasy owners should be making other Week 3 plans. If Hill misses the Colts game, we'd expect Gus Edwards to handle most of the RB carries.

The Ravens signed RB Kenyan Drake to the practice squad. He played 12 games for Baltimore last year, averaging a solid 4.4 yards per carry on 109 attempts. We'll see if Drake gets the nod over Melvin Gordon as Baltimore's No. 3 RB this weekend. For now, Drake is only worth stashing in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

As expected, the Ravens split work pretty evenly between RBs Justice Hill and Gus Edwards in the first game since J.K. Dobbins' Achilles' tendon tear. Hill edged Edwards 11-10 in carries and garnered all 3 RB targets. But Edwards proved more efficient. He averaged 6.2 yards per carry and delivered the team's only rushing score, from 1 yard out in the first quarter. Hill got the only other RB goal-line carry right before that. Hill caught all three of his targets for 12 yards and tallied 41 yards on his 11 carries (3.7 per rush). Expect the pair to continue splitting opportunities. A Week 3 home date with the Colts looks like a neutral rushing matchup.

Ravens RB Melvin Gordon has been elevated from the practice squad, an expected move following the season-ending injury to RB J.K. Dobbins. Gordon figures to work as the No. 3 RB behind Justice Hill and Gus Edwards. We'll see exactly how much work he steals from those guys.

The Ravens confirmed a torn Achilles for RB J.K. Dobbins. We’re expecting a committee approach with Justice Hill and Gus Edwards going forward. Next up is a road matchup with Cincinnati.

Ravens RB Justice Hill delivered 2 rushing TDs in Sunday's win over the Texans. His 8 carries tied J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards for the team lead, with 7 of those coming after Dobbins suffered a torn Achilles' tendon. Hill managed just 9 yards on his 8 attempts, splitting work evenly with Edwards after Dobbins went down. Edwards took his 8 carries for 32 yards and added a two-point conversion run. The two appear likely to split the backfield going forward, and we'd bet on the Ravens adding another RB.

NFL Network reports that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is feared to have suffered a torn Achilles. He's scheduled for an MRI to confirm. It'd be a season-ending injury for Dobbins, who had seemingly just worked back to 100% from his devastating 2021 knee injury. Dobbins' absence would leave Baltimore's backfield to Justice Hill and Gus Edwards.

The Ravens released RB Melvin Gordon. They'll carry RBs J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and rookie Keaton Mitchell into Week 1.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec writes that Ravens RB Justice Hill's stock is up. "You no longer should be asking whether Hill is a lock to make the team," Zrebiec adds. "It’s probably more pertinent to ask whether he’ll have a notable role on offense. He’s earned it with how he’s practiced this summer and played in the preseason." Hill has turned six preseason touches into 86 total yards, while playing ahead of RB Gus Edwards in the first exhibition. We still don't expect Hill to have tangible fantasy value behind a healthy RB J.K. Dobbins. But Hill might be the Ravens RB to own if Dobbins misses time.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Ravens are activating RB J.K. Dobbins off the physically unable to perform list today. There has been no real indication this designation was actually injury related, as Dobbins has been seeking a new contract (along with approximately every other NFL RB). HC John Harbaugh has said he maintained contact with Dobbins throughout the RB's absence and has been awaiting his return. We expect Dobbins to quickly claim the top spot on the depth chart and have not moved him down our RB rankings amid the holdout.

Update: ESPN's Jamison Hensley adds that Dobbins took part in individual drills at Monday's practice.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards will be "partially ready" for next week's minicamp, HC John Harbaugh said. Edwards played in just nine games last year after his 2021 ACL tear and subsequent hamstring injury. But he played in the final seven regular-season games and Baltimore's playoff loss, so it's unclear what's ailing him now. "No setback," Harbaugh said. "Maybe they're being a little cautious, but that's what they're doing." Harbaugh added that Edwards should be "fully ready" come training camp, but his health is worth monitoring this summer.

Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins rushed 13 times for 62 yards in Sunday’s loss to Cincinnati. He saw only 1 more attempt than Gus Edwards (12-39) and added 4-43-1 as a receiver. Afterwords, Dobbins expressed frustration with the lack of carries. "I'm a guy who feels like I should be on the field all the time," Dobbins said. "It's the playoffs. Why am I not out there?” The 24-year-old was specifically referring to QB Tyler Huntley’s 4th-quarter fumble on a goal line sneak. 2023 turns up a contract year for Dobbins.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (concussion) cleared the league's protocol and doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. This would be a pretty good spot for Ravens RBs in a world where QB Lamar Jackson was healthy and under center. The Bengals' defense ranks 22nd in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA over their last 4 games. Unfortunately, the offense isn't as strong with QB Tyler Huntley or rookie QB Anthony Brown as the starter. Edwards is a ho-hum RB2 that would need to find the end zone to really pay off for fantasy purposes. There are likely better options available for playoff contests.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (concussion) upgraded to limited participation in practice on Thursday. We'll see if he'll be cleared to play in Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. Check back tomorrow for more updates.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he'll be able to log participation this week in advance of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bengals. Be sure to check back for updates.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals with a head injury. Now in the concussion protocol, his availability for next weekend's Wild Card game is in question. We'll track his progress this coming week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins will not play against the Bengals today "and instead will begin focusing on next weekend’s wild-card game." Dobbins was not listed on this week's injury report but had the August 2021 ACL tear and surgery on that same knee this October. Assuming he didn't suffer a setback over the past couple of days, Dobbins should be busy in next weekend's Wild Card game. His absence today figures to leave Gus Edwards as Baltimore's lead ball carrier, with Justice Hill and Kenyan Drake behind him.

Responding to a question about RB Gus Edwards playing 9 snaps on Sunday night, Ravens HC John Harbaugh expressed regret. “I wasn't happy about that, Harbaugh said. “Gus should have played more.” J.K. Dobbins out-carried Edwards 17-3, a week after Dobbins held a narrow edge (12-11). Edwards won’t be a recommended Week 18 fantasy play against Cincinnati.
