Despite coming off the PUP list last week, Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins' availability for Week 1 is still uncertain, HC John Harbaugh admitted Wednesday. "He's made some good progress this week," Harbaugh said. "We measure times of how fast he runs, how fast he decelerates, how fast he changes direction. You can see the improvement is tangible. So, we'll see." The decision to remove Dobbins from the PUP list means the Ravens expect him back by at least Week 4. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his progress.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh says he has been pleased with the progress of RB J.K. Dobbins. The 3rd-year player returned to practice Monday after getting the weekend off. "He looked good," Harbaugh told the team website afterward. "He's kind of back on track, and I thought he looked a little better than he did before – last week. So, he continues to improve, and we'll see where it goes." The coach added that it "remains to be seen" exactly how they'll ramp up Dobbins' workload en route to the regular-season opener. With nearly 4 weeks until that 1st game, Dobbins appears to be on track. But we'll continue to monitor his progress.

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.

Ravens RB Justice Hill has "built momentum" early in training camp, The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec writes. "He’s looked quick, showing no signs of the Achilles tear that sidelined him all last season," Zrebiec adds. "He’s also caught quite a few balls out of the backfield." Baltimore's backfield is a fluid situation with J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards iffy for the start of the season. Hill is battling with Mike Davis and Tyler Badie for positioning on the depth chart behind Dobbins and Edwards.

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.

The Ravens have placed RB J.K. Dobbins on the PUP list to begin training camp. This comes as no surprise, given that Dobbins is working back from an August ACL tear (plus LCL and meniscus damage) and is reportedly not a lock to play in the regular-season opener. This designation has no bearing on his status for that game, however. We'll monitor the 3rd-year Baltimore back throughout camp and the preseason.

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.

Clifton Brown of Ravens.com believes 6th-round rookie RB Tyler Badie "has a chance to factor" this season if RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards struggle returning from their knee injuries. "Badie is already showing his versatility as a runner and pass catcher out of the backfield," Brown writes. It's worth noting that this comes from the team's official website in an article that basically highlighted the best-case scenario for Baltimore's entire rookie class. But it's not the first time we've heard some buzz on Badie. He'll be worth monitoring this summer.

Jeff Zrebiec considers RB J.K. Dobbins “highly unlikely” to play in the preseason. In fact, Zrebiec considers it “logical” for the Ravens to place Dobbins on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the open of training camp. This all comes after Dobbins sat out the offseason program following an August 2021 ACL tear. “The knee injuries are a little tougher to say what the schedule really is. So, you talk to J.K., he’s the starting running back today, (and) he should have been practicing today, but he’s got work to do still,” HC John Harbaugh said in June. Consider Dobbins a high-risk low-end RB2 until we gain more clarity on his health.

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.

Ravens beat writer Jamison Hensley writes that J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards “likely won’t be available” for upcoming OTAs. Baltimore opens up OTA workouts on May 24, when both guys will be about 9 months removed from ACL tears. So we're not talking about a setback here; both guys are expected to return for training camp. Adding rookie RB Tyler Badie and veteran Mike Davis in recent days, Baltimore has the bodies to get through the spring. While the backfield looks messy now, we know this team wants to go run heavy — especially without Marquise Brown. In 3 seasons as Ravens OC, Greg Roman’s units have ranked 1st, 1st and 3rd in rush attempts.

The Ravens signed RB Mike Davis. The 29-year-old was released by the Falcons last week after averaging just 3.6 yards per carry in his lone season in Atlanta. That offensive line did him no favors, of course, and Davis actually ranked 15th among 50 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating. He arrives in Baltimore alongside RBs J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, who are all coming off season-ending injuries. Davis looks like an insurance policy on Dobbins and Edwards, but we'll keep a close eye on this backfield this summer.

The Falcons are releasing RB Mike Davis, according to insider Jordan Schultz. The move saves $2.5 million against the 2022 salary cap. Davis struggled to just 3.6 yards per carry last year and turned 29 in February. His departure leaves Atlanta with RBs Cordarrelle Patterson, Damien Williams, Qadree Ollison and 5th-round rookie Tyler Allgeier. We like Allgeier's chances to win the Davis role alongside Patterson. The rookie is a nice dynasty target and redraft sleeper.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Monday RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are "making progress" in their recoveries from last year's torn ACLs. It's the first real update of any kind that we've gotten on these guys since they tore their ACLs in late August and early September, respectively. Harbaugh added that Dobbins and Edwards will "likely" start training camp on the PUP list. But the timing of the knee injuries makes both guys good bets to be available come Week 1.

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.
