Gus Edwards listed as questionable for Week 12 vs. Jaguars, but trending in right direction

We break down the news that Gus Edwards is dealing with a hamstring injury. What it means for Week 12 and beyond.

Friday update: Edwards got in another full practice on Friday. He is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, but two straight full practices puts him in a good position to play in Week 12.

Thursday Update: Edwards was able to fully practice on Thursday. If Edwards comes off the injury report ahead of Sunday, you have to assume that he will see a solid workload in the backfield. Kenyan Drake hasn’t been able to lock down the starting running back role, so look for Edwards to get some run if he ends up being active.

Wednesday update: Edwards was limited on Wednesday, which is the same as last week when he was limited each day before being ruled out. It would be a good sign to see him get a full practice in on Friday.

The Baltimore Ravens will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in an AFC battle on Sunday for Week 12. The Ravens' offense has been decimated by injuries this season, yet they still take a 7-3 record and first place standing in the AFC North into this game. They can’t seem to keep running backs healthy, but there is a glimmer of good news on Wednesday as Gus Edwards returned to practice. He has been dealing with a hamstring injury and missed last week’s game.

Fantasy football implications for Week 12

Edwards began the season on IR but was able to return in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns. He had 16 carries for 66 yards and two touchdowns but didn’t bring in his lone target. He suited up the following week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and had 11 carries for 65 yards but didn’t find the end zone. Edwards has missed the team’s last two games but is hopeful of returning this week. If he is active, you will likely start him in your fantasy football lineups against the Jaguars.
