Friday PM update: The Ravens announced Ingram is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Steelers.
Friday lunch update: Mark Ingram did not practice on Friday, and he seems unlikely to play on Sunday, per Jeff Zrebiec. Gus Edwards and JK Dobbins would likely both get extensive playing time if Ingram is inactive.
Thursday update: The Ravens may be without their starting running back, as Mark Ingram missed his second day of practice in the run up to their matchup with the Steelers, per Jeff Zrebiec. With a healthy batch of running backs, the team likely won’t push him, especially against one of the best run defenses in the league. But, if he can work on Friday, he will still have a chance to play.
Baltimore Ravens running backs Mark Ingram suffered an ankle injury in Week 6 before his team’s Week 7 bye but is still working toward getting healthy for a Week 8 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ingram didn’t report to the practice field on Wednesday, according to The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec. Baltimore is one of the best running teams in the NFL and have options capable of performing at a high level if Ingram is ruled out.
Fantasy football analysis: Ravens RBs Gus Edwards, J.K. Dobbins, and Justice Hill
Edwards only has two fewer carries and seven fewer rushing yards than Ingram on the year and is the back most likely to become Baltimore’s top option. While he isn’t a factor in the passing game like Ingram, his 4.5 yards per carry are even with the usual starter. Dobbins is a more versatile back but is averaging just over four rushing attempts per game. He could be a threat as a receiving back against the Steelers’ stingy run defense, but don’t expect him to get a boatload of touches. Hill has been a healthy scratch for half the season and shouldn’t receive much consideration.
