Shark Bites

Ravens RBs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram have tested positive for COVID-19 and will hit the reserve list, according to NFL Network's Mike Garofolo. Unless they turn out to be false-positives -- which have been fairly rare this season -- that means both RBs will miss at least Thursday night's game against the Steelers. That leaves Gus Edwards to control the backfield for that game. He figures to check in as a RB2 in our Week 12 rankings and should be scooped up wherever available. We'll see about the status of Dobbins and Ingram for Week 13.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) and NT Brandon Williams (ankle) are doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans. Campbell is the defense's top-graded lineman in run defense, according to Pro Football Focus. Williams rates poorly in that area, but losing your starting NT isn't likely to help your run D. The pair of injuries improves the matchup for Titans RB Derrick Henry.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. We like Baltimore’s running game to have a big one vs. a New England squad sitting 31st in Football Outsiders’ run defense DVOA, but it’s completely unclear how the RB touches will be divvied after Ingram missed the the past 2 games.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is expected to play against the Patriots tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ingram led the Ravens in carries through 6 healthy weeks, but it's unclear what this backfield will look like now. Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are all risk/reward RB3s vs. a bad New England run defense.

Ravens OLB Matt Judon (calf) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. After opening the week missing practice, Judon put in a limited Thursday workout and participated in full on Friday. That bodes well for his game status. Unfortunately, the Sunday night kickoff leaves you few options if you hope to wait for him. Baltimore also ruled out DE Calais Campbell (calf), as expected.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Patriots. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday and then a full-go on Friday. Ingram seems likely to play vs. New England, turning this backfield back into a frustrating 3-man committee.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. That follows a limited workout on Wednesday. Ingram either got the day off or suffered a setback. Check back tomorrow for another update. His absence would make RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards much easier to trust vs. a bad Patriots run defense on Sunday night.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. HC John Harbaugh said earlier in the day that Ingram has a shot to return for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. We'll update his status again tomorrow.

Asked Wednesday whether RB Mark Ingram is getting close to returning and could be an option against the Patriots on Sunday night, Ravens HC John Harbaugh told reporters: "Yes and yes." Get ready for the Baltimore backfield committee to be back in full session and frustrating fantasy owners. We'll watch the situation over the next few days.

The Ravens have activated CB Marlon Humphrey from the COVID list, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. That should mean he'll be available for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. We've added Humphrey to the Week 10 DB rankings.

The calf strain that knocked Ravens DE Calais Campbell out of Sunday's game "will likely caust him to miss multiple weeks," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Campbell will reportedly have further tests to determine the severity, and the injury "does not sound long term." But you'll at least need to line up a Week 10 replacement for your IDP lineup. Campbell's snaps got spread around after he left the Colts game. DE Derek Wolfe might have been the greatest beneficiary, playing a season-high 75% of the snaps. He didn't see much boost on the stat sheet, though, with just 3 tackles, no tackles for loss and 0 QB hits.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell left in the 1st quarter of today's game against the Colts with a calf injury. He's questionable to return.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards figure to split backfield duties again.

The Ravens have elevated WR Dez Bryant from the practice squad to the active roster. That means we could see him in action as soon as Sunday against the Colts. We can't expect Bryant to become a fantasy factor quickly, especially in an offense that hasn't been able to support much consistent pass-catcher production outside of Marquise Brown so far. But we'll be interested to see what Bryant looks like -- 3 years after his last NFL game -- and what kind of role he can carve out.

The Ravens have activated all the players who landed on the COVID list earlier this week for close contact with CB Marlon Humphrey. That means ILB Patrick Queen, OLB Matt Judon and S DeShon Elliott -- among others -- will be available for Sunday's game against the Colts. Humphrey remains out, of course, as the only one who tested positive.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Colts. He won’t play, again leaving the backfield to RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. Dobbins garnered 15 carries and 2 targets to Edwards’ 16 carries and 1 target last week.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Ingram isn't a good bet to play against the Colts this weekend. That'd again leave Baltimore's backfield to J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards.

This will be an interesting week for the Ravens defense. CB Marlon Humphrey landed on the COVID list at the beginning of the week after testing positive. His list of close contacts includes OLB Matt Judon, ILB Patrick Queen, S DeShon Elliott and ILB L.J. Fort -- as well as reserve ILB Malik Harrison. They all must isolate for at least 5 days. Whoever passes COVID testing at the end of that phase will still be available to play Sunday against the Colts. We'll certainly be watching for the sake of IDP lineups, as well as the Baltimore team defense's outlook.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey tweeted Monday that he has tested positive for COVID. Based on previous cases around the league, that likely knocks him out for at least the next 2 games. That would take Humphrey out of IDP lineups and weaken the Baltimore secondary for upcoming matchups with the Colts and Patriots. We’ll see whether any more positives turn up among Ravens or Steelers, whom Humphrey and the Ravens played yesterday.

Ravens OLB Matt Judon got ejected in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers for making contact with an official. He said after the game that the contact was accidental, coming when Judon tried to free his arm amid some post-play fighting -- but also took responsibility. We don't expect to see Judon suspended from any further game action.
