Alex Collins Injury Updates

The Ravens waived RB Alex Collins Friday, hours after he was arrested following a car crash in Maryland. We have yet to see details on the specific charges facing Collins, but Baltimore likely didn't need much motivation to move on from the veteran. Collins totaled just 114 carries and 15 receptions over 10 games before a foot injury landed him on IR. Gus Edwards then took over the backfield, and Kenneth Dixon grew his role late in the year. We'll see whether the Ravens add another piece or 2 this offseason. And we'll see whether Collins gets a shot at returning to fantasy relevance.

The Ravens have placed RB Alex Collins on IR with the foot injury that cost him last week's game. He reportedly won't need surgery. The team is also activating RB Kenneth Dixon from IR. He's been out since suffering a knee injury back in Week 1 but could see time Sunday against the Falcons, especially with RB Gus Edwards entering the game questionable. We expect Edwards to play, especially after he finished the week with a full practice. Dixon is a pickup option for many leagues, though, as an Edwards handcuff or Collins replacement. Buck Allen remains in the mix as well.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Steelers. After sitting out on Thursday, he put in a full practice on Friday. So Collins should play on Sunday. But the foot injury adds risk to what was already a tough matchup.

The Ravens have placed RB Kenneth Dixon on IR with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's season opener. It's unclear if he's a candidate to return in 8 weeks, but he's not worth stashing on any redraft rosters. Baltimore moves forward with Alex Collins in the lead role and Buck Allen handling pass-catching duties.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon injured his knee late in Sunday's win over the Bills, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. We don't have any other details yet, but Zrebiec adds that "the expectation is he'll miss some time." Dixon has been unable to stay healthy as a pro and isn't worth a roster spot in redraft leagues. His absence leaves Alex Collins and Buck Allen as Baltimore's healthy RBs.

Ravens RB Alex Collins sat out practice Wednesday with a calf injury. We didn't hear anything about the issue during Monday night's game, and Collins was on the field for the team's final drive. We're not worried about this situation but will certainly keep an eye on his participation throughout the week.

Ravens RB Terrance West did not practice on Wednesday and was listed on the injury report with a calf. We don't have any other details on the injury, but he's clearly in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Jaguars in London. West's absence would leave Buck Allen as Baltimore's clear lead back and Alex Collins as the #2.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls left Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a shoulder injury. He carried just 8 times for 8 yards before leaving and failed to catch his lone target. RB Alex Collins carried 7 times for 28 yards and caught 4 passes for 19 yards in relief.
