Chargers Running Back Gus Edwards On Track For Training Camp Return
3 days ago

Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh gave an update to the undisclosed injury to running back Gus Edwards.

The 29 year old free agent signing from Baltimore was expected to take the reigns to start the season but after an undisclosed injury the job may be up for grabs. Edwards was seen working on the side with trainers during minicamp and was also not present for OTA’s leaving questions about his injury status.

 

Unfortunately, the only update from head coach Jim Harbaugh was that Edwards is “on a really good track” to be ready for training camp. The nature of the injury right now is unknown leaving it tough to project what to expect from Edwards moving forward. With fellow free agent signing J.K. Dobbins recovering from a 2023 week one achilles tear, the door may be open for sixth round rookie Kimani Vidal to snag the starting job.

 

Edwards and Dobbins both came to the Chargers from the Ravens and they both have experience with offensive coordinator Greg Roman. This probably helps both their causes a little as far as missing time goes but this will still be a situation to monitor in training camp. It’s very possible the Chargers open camp with Vidal as the only back able to take full participation giving him the leg up on his competition.

Ravens Release Former Pro Bowl RB Melvin Gordon
9 months ago

The Baltimore Ravens have released two-time Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon.

How the mighty have fallen. After being waived last season by the Denver Broncos, Melvin Gordon signed with the Ravens to see if he could find a spark to get his career back on track. Unfortunately, after providing just 59 yards on 17 carries during the pre-season, the Ravens have decided to part ways with the former pro-bowler.

Now that the 53-man roster is set, the Ravens will be rolling with J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and talented undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell at running back. Dobbins will be the RB1 heading into the season with Edwards and Hill being mixed into the offense.

As for Mitchell, Gordon’s release signals to fantasy managers that Keaton is a name to remember in deeper dynasty leagues. Over his last two seasons at East Carolina, Mitchell has carried the ball 375 times for 2,584 yards and 23 touchdowns. He’s also illustrated that he can be a weapon out of the backfield by posting 49 receptions for 505 yards and two touchdowns. The three running backs ahead of Mitchell have not been the greatest pillars of good health, especially Dobbins and Edwards. This could lead to more opportunities in the offense sooner rather than later. If you have the space in your deep dynasty leagues Mitchell is a player you should consider stashing.

 

J.K. Dobbins Return TBD
10 months ago

Baltimore Ravens HC John Harbaugh is unsure when RB J.K. Dobbins will return to the team. Dobbins is currently away from the team on the Physically Unable to Perform List.

The Baltimore Ravens placed J.K. Dobbins on the Physically Unable to Perform list citing the knee injury that knocked Dobbins out of the 2021 season and parts of 2022. In reality, everyone knows J.K. Dobbins is not practicing because he is unhappy with his current contract. The Ravens do not view Dobbins’ “injury” as a distraction as Harbaugh is in regular communication with his running back.

 

In the short term, Gus Edwards, Melvin Gordon, and Justice Hill will split time with the First Team O while UDFA Keaton Mitchell tries to make the roster. In the long term, J.K. Dobbins has no leverage and the Ravens will not extend him early, meaning Dobbins will report to camp before Week 1 and will play all 17 games in hopes of securing a bag. Expect Dobbins to see 60%+ of the touches in a true bell cow capacity in a wide-open, spread offense under Todd Monken.
