The Baltimore Ravens will be without Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins on Thanksgiving night after both tested positive for Covid-19, per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. Reports earlier in the day had the Ravens shutting down their facilities after positive tests, but now we know their names and it is bad news for the Ravens offense as they prepare for a huge matchup with the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers.
With Dobbins and Ingram both out for the Thursday night game, Gus Edwards will take the lead against the tough Steelers run defense. Dobbins had just taken over as the lead back in their Week 11 game against the Titans, as he was clearly ahead of the group in snaps, touches and production, but now won’t get to build off his 95 yards and a touchdown game.
Edwards will be worth a start, even against the Steelers defense, as he’s on a great rushing team and won’t have much competition. Justice Hill should get a good boost in work, as he is the only other back to be activated on game day this season who is available. He also should be used in the receiving game, as Edwards has only seen eight targets on the season.
