The Baltimore Ravens reportedly fear JK Dobbins suffered a season-ending knee injury in Saturday’s 37-3 win over the Washington soccer team, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Dobbins lay on the ground holding his knee after being tackled with a screen pass on the ninth play of Saturday’s game. His left knee took a direct hit from the shoulder of Washington cornerback Jimmy Moreland.
Coaches helped the 22-year-old off the field as he was unable to put any weight on his left leg.
If Dobbins is out for the year, it will be a massive blow to Baltimore’s offense.
Dobbins, a 2020 second-round draft pick, was entering his first season as Baltimore’s leading running back. Last year, he rushed for 805 yards and nine touchdowns, playing a major role in the Ravens’ playoff push.
Gus Edwards is the next man for Baltimore if Dobbins is out. The 26-year-old has three straight seasons of more than 700 rushing yards, but the 2020 season was his best. The New York native rushed for 723 yards and six touchdowns.
In addition to Edwards, the Ravens also have Justice Hill and Ty’Son Williams on the roster. Baltimore selected Hill in the fourth round of the 2019 draft and Williams was not selected in 2020.
