Ravens running back JK Dobbins suffered the worst injury Saturday against the Washington soccer team – one that occurs during preseason.
Dobbins fell with about nine minutes remaining in the first quarter. He stayed on the field clutching his left knee and was finally helped by the coaches. He couldn’t put any weight on his leg.
After spending time in the Ravens’ medical tent, Dobbins left the field in a cart and headed to the Baltimore locker room. The Ravens later confirmed that Dobbins suffered a knee injury and that the third-year running back would be out for the remainder of the game.

It appears that Dobbins was sandwiched between WFT defenders Jimmy Moreland and Jordan Kunaszyk, with the former hitting Dobbins’ knee:
The severity of Dobbins’ injury is unknown. If Dobbins is forced to waste time this season, the Ravens have four other running backs on their active roster: Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, Nate McCrary and Ty’Son Williams.
Dobbins finished second over the Ravens in rushing in 2020 with 805 yards and led the team with nine rushing touchdowns. Only quarterback Lamar Jackson (1,005) rushed for more yards than Dobbins. Edwards finished third on the team last season with 723 rushing yards and six touchdowns. The team’s fourth leading running back Mark Ingram (299 yards, two touchdowns) is now with the Texans.
