Dixon has a torn meniscus

Recommended Posts

He was a 4th rounder. Makes you wonder why ppl just ASSumed he was going to be a superstar right out of the box? Then that makes you wonder why ppl think al the rookies and 2nd yr guys will be stars this season?

By people, are you including the Ravens brass, I hope?!

Bobby Rainey could help in the return game. Do not know what type of blocking they will be doing but always thought he would do better with a zone. The only thing I didn't like about him was his strait up running. I do recall seeing him in Tampa and he seem to be working on that. Keenan Reynold is a guy I wished they would move back to RB.

 

Not a fan of Dixon.

This sucks.

The Ravens have no "feature RB".

 

 

 

RUNNING BACK (2): Terrance West, Danny Woodhead and Kenneth Dixon (suspended)

West's hold on the starting job was strengthened after Dixon's four-game suspension, and Woodhead will prove valuable in the passing game. Buck Allen was a non-factor by the end of last season, and the Ravens don't need to carry another tailback if they go with Lorenzo Taliaferro as their fullback.

FULLBACK (1): Lorenzo Taliaferro

The Ravens are looking to replace Pro Bowl fullback Kyle Juszczyk, who signed with the San Francisco 49ers in free agency. Taliaferro, a converted tailback, is currently in the lead, but he will have to hold off undrafted rookie Ricky Ortiz...http://www.espn.com/blog/baltimore-ravens/post/_/id/37043/ravens-roster-projection-includes-surprising-super-bowl-xlix-star

I am not optimistic but I certainly will be pulling for these guys....

 

 

 

Is the running game reboot developing on schedule?

After ranking No. 28 in the league in rushing in 2016, the Ravens have focused on fixing their ground game, which, in theory, would help achieve a more desirable run-pass balance. There’s a new line coach and a run-game expert overseeing the makeover, and honestly, we won’t know how it’s progressing until the team plays games that count. But camp practices could provide a read on how the line is adapting to some new blocking schemes, and also, whether the running back stable is ready to deal with Kenneth Dixon’s absence for at least four games due to a suspension and a knee injury. Is there another running back on the roster who can share the load with Terrance West? Is just-signed Bobby Rainey the answer? Can Buck Allen revive his career? Can Lorenzo Taliaferro play two positions? We’re about to find out.

Yeah I also see West and Allen. Have no idea how this will work out. Especially with our O-line.

 

Sheesh we can't even get to camp without a serious injury.

 

it will work out like 2001 with Terry Allen and Brookins. Let's hope Joe does better than Grbac.

Ok...Ok....here's some 'Do Not Panic" options....

 

 

 

There will be plenty of opportunities to potentially upgrade at the position later this summer. In the NFL, the supply of running backs exceeds the demand and more quality ball carriers will hit the free-agent market in the weeks ahead.

High-fives: breaking down the biggest storylines as the Ravens get ready for training camp
There’s already been a report that the San Francisco 49ers, after signing Tim Hightower and drafting Joe Williams, could move on from Carlos Hyde. After using high draft picks in consecutive years on Leonard Fournette and TJ Yeldon, the Jacksonville Jaguars might not keep Chris Ivory around for much longer.

The New England Patriots added Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee this offseason and it seems inconceivable, even for Bill Belichick, that they’ll be able to keep the rest of their returning backs, a group that includes Dion Lewis, James White and Brandon Bolden.

With the New Orleans Saints signing Adrian Peterson and using a third-round pick on Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram’s status is suddenly unclear.

The Denver Broncos have an excess of backs with youngsters Devontae Booker and De’Angelo Henderson joining a backfield that also includes CJ Anderson and Jamaal Charles.

A number of other veterans could find themselves looking for new homes later this summer. That list could include Alfred Morris (Dallas Cowboys), Matt Jones (Washington Redskins), Shaun Draughn (New York Giants) and Ryan Mathews (Philadelphia Eagles).

There is a popular saying nowadays that you can find running backs anywhere. That’s why the Ravens needn’t panic. If their current backs falter, there will be plenty of potential replacements available in due time.....http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/sports/ravens/bs-sp-ravens-running-back-options-20170725-story.html

Max- I really had high hopes for Dixon, but that seems the Raven way now adays. Get hurt-out for the season or get suspended. You're right. We have to add a quality RB. Taliferro will be back, but is not the answer. Either is Whitehead. West is running out of steam, IMO. We have to add another feature to this position before long.
