Shark Bites

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon will miss the entire 2017 season after undergoing surgery today to repair his torn meniscus, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The meniscus needed to be completely repaired, rather than the trimming procedure that would have sidelined him 6-8 weeks. Dixon's rehab is now expected to take 4-5 months. He should be a full-go for the start of the 2018 campaign, but he's now had 3 knee injuries in just a little more than a year in the NFL. Terrance West is the big winner here -- essentially locked in as the lead ball-carrier on an offense that should run more this year with Greg Roman on staff. He's not an exciting talent but should at least be a volume-based RB3 or flex. RB Danny Woodhead should also pick some up extra carries while dominating passing-down 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.
