Game status: Ingram is INACTIVE for Week 8.

Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram is listed as doubtful on the Week 8 injury report. He’s still dealing with an ankle injury that hobbled him before the team’s bye last week. Ingram did not practice this week, which means that he will most likely not play when his team takes on the Steelers this weekend.

Fantasy impact: Mark Ingram (ankle)

No Ingram means that Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins will split the work out of the backfield. Though quarterback Lamar Jackson’s running ability also factors heavily into the Ravens’ rushing attack.

Edwards has had an edge over Dobbins in carries prior to this week, and he will most likely take that role again this week. Dobbins gets more work in the passing game, and his overall workload is likely to increase this week with Ingram on the shelf. For fantasy purposes, both players are decent low-end options with some upside.
