Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon will undergo knee surgery today, according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec. The team believes Dixon has a torn meniscus but will know more after the operation. Zrebiec notes that meniscus tears usually sideline guys for 6-8 weeks -- but that can vary based on the severity. Dixon, of course, is suspended for the first 4 games of the season, so it's possible that this injury doesn't cost him any additional time. But he'll likely miss all of training camp and the preseason, costing him valuable reps to earn playing time. It's also worth noting that Dixon suffered a pair of knee injuries last summer, so durability is certainly becoming a concern. There's still a chance that he emerges as Baltimore's lead RB at some point this season, but Dixon can't be drafted as more than a late-round flier at this point. Terrance West will serve as the primary ball-carrier early on. Danny Woodhead will handle the majority of the pass-catching work.
The Ravens have reached an injury settlement with RB Kenneth Dixon that releases him from IR, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. The 25-year-old is now a free agent. We saw no report of a specific injury when Baltimore placed Dixon on IR. Zrebiec says, "It seems unlikely he will quickly resurface as he is rehabbing a fractured knee but should be back on NFL radars next spring." Dixon played 3 of Baltimore's 4 preseason games, though, including 13 carries for 66 yards in Thursday night's finale. It's hard to see why he wouldn't be on the 2019 radar. We'll be watching to see where he lands.
The Ravens on Saturday placed RB Kenneth Dixon on season-ending IR. We've seen no report of a specific injury, so this seems like a situation where we could see an injury settlement. That would allow Dixon to find a new team. He's obviously not a fantasy asset to any degree until that happens. The move clears the way for Baltimore's expected top 3 at RB: Mark Ingram, Justice Hill and Gus Edwards.
Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon has been designated as 1 of the team's return-from-IR players and has been cleared to practice. He's been sidelined since hurting his knee in the season opener. It's unclear how close Dixon is to being game ready. But when he gets back out there, he'll be returning to a backfield with Alex Collins, Buck Allen and Ty Montgomery. Dixon isn't worth a fantasy roster spot right now.
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.
