Keaton Mitchell, RB BAL

2:22pm EST 12/18/23

Testing confirms a left ACL tear for Keaton Mitchell; full recovery expected

Ravens RB Keaton Mitchell tore his left ACL in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's win over the Jaguars. It looked like that kind of injury at the time, and HC John Harbaugh said after the game they expected Mitchell to miss the season. Multiple reports say the Ravens are optimistic for a full recovery. The timing, though, could challenge the start to Mitchell's second NFL season -- especially considering the importance of speed and explosiveness to his game. The rookie certainly remains worth stashing on dynasty rosters where possible. Mitchell won't be more than an end-of-draft flier (if that) for early 2024 best ball drafting, though. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill figure to split the backfield the rest of the way, including the playoffs. We'd also bet on Baltimore bringing RB Melvin Gordon back from the practice squad. He logged 13 carries and 3 targets across two games early this season, when the Ravens were dealing with multiple RB injuries (including Mitchell's first IR stint).

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Barring a setback, he should be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. RB Justice Hill (foot) remained sidelined on Wednesday. His absence on Sunday would again leave Melvin Gordon as Baltimore's No. 2 RB.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards left to get checked for a concussion in the second half of Sunday's game vs. the Colts. That leaves the backfield to Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake. We'll update Edwards' status when we know more.

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.

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (neck, ribs) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Chargers. We haven't heard any concern about his availability for this one, but the injuries add some risk to his Week 6 fantasy profile. RBs Mike Boone and Latavius Murray figure to be active alongside Gordon on Monday.
