Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh isn’t going to hunt down a new replacement for J.K. Dobbins.
of the Ravens’ 25-9 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday with an apparent ankle injury. He was quickly ruled out of the game, and then the team confirmed after the win at M&T Bank Stadium that Dobbins had for the rest of the season.
Dobbins had eight carries for 22 yards and a touchdown in the game. He played in just eight games last season while recovering from an ACL injury that kept him out of the entire 2021 season and a later knee injury. He had 520 rushing yards and two touchdowns last season.
Dobbins, who the Ravens took in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, is in the final year of his initial four-year, $5.7 million deal. He missed part of training camp earlier this fall while seeking a new deal.
Edwards had 32 rushing yards on eight carries in Sunday’s win over Houston, which made him the team’s leading rusher outside of quarterback Lamar Jackson. Justice Hill had nine yards on eight carries, but scored a pair of touchdowns.
Gordon signed a one-year deal with the Ravens earlier this summer, but was released and re-signed to the practice squad. He is now back on the team’s active roster. Gordon, 30, had 318 rushing yards and two touchdowns with the Denver Broncos last season.
“He’s here for a reason and certainly didn’t expect it to be this quick, but that’s why he’s here and that’s why he wanted to stay here,” Harbaugh said of Gordon, via ESPN. “He’s a proven back, so I’m very, very glad that he’s here.”
Despite Dobbins’ injury, the Ravens rolled to the season-opening win over Houston on Sunday. Jackson went 17-of-22 for 169 yards through the air with one interception. Zay Flowers led the team with 78 receiving yards on nine catches. The Ravens will travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals next on Sunday.
