Ravens Running Back Expected To Miss 4-6 Weeks

The Baltimore Ravens, like every team in the AFC North in 2022 have been incredibly inconsistent, and with a matchup against the division rival Cleveland Browns on tap for Week 7, they need to find their offence, sooner, rather than later if they wish to make a genuine run in 2022. They currently sit at 3-3, tied with the Cincinnati Bengals for first place in the North, but with a practice week full of interruptions that included Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews missing time, they've today received some devastating news on their young running back.

J.K. Dobbins was originally expected to just miss the Week 7 clash, but now, ESPN Insider Adam Schefter has revealed that Dobbins will instead now undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, which will keep him out for between 6 and 8 weeks, a major blow to this offence that was finally looking to gain some balance.

The team still have Kenyan Drake, who performed very well in Week 6, along with the addition of DeSean Jackson, who will add a great deep threat to this offensive unit, but the Dobbins news is a massive blow. With Lamar Jackson playing QB, this team always has a great chance to put up good numbers offensively, but losing their best running back certainly won't help, as they look to put some distance between them and the rest of the AFC North.
