Baltimore Ravens Place RB Gus Edwards on PUP List


The Baltimore Ravens have placed running back Gus Edwards on their reserve/physically unable to perform list, the team announced on Tuesday. This means Edwards will miss at least four games to start the 2022-23 season. 

Edwards, who signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2018, suffered a torn ACL during practice last September which ultimately ended his 2021 season. The 27-year-old's leg injury seems to still be bothering him and the earliest the offensive back could return is Week 5 against their division rival, the Cincinnati Bengals on Oct. 9th. 

Since arriving in Baltimore Edwards has steadily produced for his club. He's averaged 5.2 yards a carry, rushed for 1434 yards with eight touchdowns, and has played in 43 games (started 13). The Ravens signed Edwards to a two-year contract extension last June.

As Edwards will be missing in action to begin the Raven's season they hope to get steady production from J.K Dobbins, who still has not been cleared officially by the club to play in Week 1 after his own ACL tear he suffered last year as well. 

Next in line on the Baltimore's depth chart if both are unready to perform is veteran back Mike Davis and alongside Justice Hill, rookie Tyler Badie, and Nate McCrary.
