An MRI on the left knee of Baltimore Ravens running back JK Dobbins confirmed that he suffered a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament that ended the season in Saturday’s 37-3 win over the Washington soccer team. according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Dobbins suffered the injury on the ninth play of Saturday’s contest. His left knee was hit by the shoulder of Washington cornerback Jimmy Moreland.
The 22-year-old had to be helped off the field as he couldn’t put any weight on his left leg.
Entering his sophomore season, the 2020 second-round pick was slated to be Baltimore’s lead in 2021. Last year, he rushed for 805 yards and nine touchdowns, playing a major role in the playoff push for the Ravens.
With Dobbins out, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and Ty’Son Williams will need to step up Baltimore’s offense. Edwards rushed for a career-high 723 yards and six touchdowns last season, while Hill and Williams didn’t contribute much.
The Ravens could potentially look to sign another running back in the next few days with final roster cuts taking place this week. Todd Gurley, Duke Johnson, Kerryon Johnson, TJ Yeldon, LeSean McCoy, Adrian Peterson and Le’Veon Bell are among the running backs who have yet to sign this summer.
