Ravens RB Gus Edwards tore his ACL at practice Thursday

The Ravens running backs’ luck continues to be awful, as yet another player goes down with a season-ending injury

It has now been confirmed that Edwards tore his ACL. Truly a bad beat for a back who went from backup to starter to out for the season before their first game.

UPDATE: The team is already leaking information that they believe Edwards tore his ACL, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Ty’son Williams will be the starter come Monday night when the Ravens take on the Raiders. Le’Veon Bell and Trenton Cannon will be his backup for the game, as they are the only healthy backs on the team at this point. There is a good chance Latavius Murray gets a call, but that is conjecture. Lamar Jackson is more than likely going to be the leading rusher for Baltimore once again.

It’s hard to believe things could get any worse for Baltimore Ravens running backs, but it appears that Gus Edwards has suffered a knee injury at practice, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The team already lost starter J.K. Dobbins to a season ending injury along with backup Justice Hill. Now that it appears Edwards will be out, Ty’son Williams is a must add for fantasy football. The Ravens also brought in Le’veon Bell and Trenton Cannon and now will likely look at other backs, with Latavius Murray being an obvious possibility.
