Baltimore Ravens Running Back Will Return to Practice This Week

The always excellent Baltimore Ravens running game may be on the verge of levelling up. Head coach John Harbaugh shared at his Monday press conference that running back J.K. Dobbins would participate in practice this week, activating his 21-day window for a return from Injured Reserve.
Dobbins has been unavailable since aggravating his surgically-repaired knee in a Week 6 24-20 loss to the New York Giants. Dobbins missed the entirety of the 2021 season and the first two weeks of this season as he recovered from a devastating ACL tear suffered during 2021 training camp.

When available, Dobbins is an explosive and dominant rusher for the Ravens. In his promising rookie season, he rushed for 805 yards at an incredible 6.0 yards per attempt for a rushing attack that finished the 2020 season first in rushing yards and rushing yards per attempt. He has yet to regain his footing post-injury; he's down to 123 yards at 3.5 yards per carry in four appearances this year.

Dobbins joined the Ravens as their 55th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft after a spectacular three years at Ohio State. He totalled 4459 rushing yards in 42 appearances with the Buckeyes before declaring for the NFL Draft.
