Shark Bites

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.

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.

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 Kenneth Dixon (knee) participated in this past week's OTAs after missing all of 2017 with a torn meniscus. “The knee feels very good," Dixon said. "Battling some things you have to battle when you get back on the field with flexibility and all those things, but the knee feels totally well and I’m just ready to play." Barring a setback, that knee shouldn't be an issue in 2018. Alex Collins heads to training camp as Baltimore's lead back, but Dixon is capable of pushing for a significant role -- especially in the passing game. He tallied 63 catches across his final 2 seasons at Louisiana Tech and caught 30 balls in his 2016 rookie campaign. Highlight Dixon as a potential late-round sleeper in PPR drafts.
