Ravens Running Back To Start Practicing Ahead Of Week 5

The Baltimore Ravens finally got some balance back in their offence when former standout rookie J.K. Dobbins finally returned from a torn ACL that he suffered in the 2021 pre-season, and after a big game in Week 4, the Ravens may be getting back another running back very soon.

Gus Edwards was signed to Baltimore as an un-drafted free agent all the way back in 2018, and although he's never been featured as the lead back, he's done plenty of good work for this team, racking up over 2,300 all purpose yards as well as 10 Touchdown's in that time. After signing a two-year extension worth $10 million, Edwards unfortunately tore his ACL in September of 2021, and now, 13 months later, the team has taken him off the PUP list, which has started his clock, giving them 21 days to assign him to the active roster, which the team will no doubt do.

Sure, the Ravens still have Kenyan Drake and now a healthy Dobbins, but Edwards could still play a key role for this very talented team going forward, or at the very least, could serve as more than solid depth for a playoff team. Edwards won't be back in Week 5, but if he can get a solid week or two of practice in, there's no doubting at all that he is still a good player, and will play a role for the Baltimore Ravens in 2022.
