Ravens to Be Minus Two Key RB’s in Thursday’s Game Against Steelers

After allowing over 260 yards to the Ravens run game in the first meeting, Thursday the Steelers may be catching a huge break in terms of who will be on the field for the Ravens.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that Ravens running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins have BOTH tested positive for the Covid-19 virus, and both will miss Thursday’s huge showdown at Heinz Field.

Dobbins was the best running back on the field in the first meeting between the teams back on November 1st, going for 113 yards on 15 carries.

Monday Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, unaware of the status of the two players at the time he spoke to the media, said that Dobbins was a player the Steelers had to stop in Thursday’s rematch.

“It’s obvious he’s their feature runner right now,” Tomlin said of Dobbins on Monday. “He’s got some breakaway speed that needs to be contended with.”

The absence of both those running backs leaves the team having to go with Gus Edwards as the club’s featured back for the game.

Edwards has 376 yards on the ground this season with three scores.

You can bet that quarterback Lamar Jackson will get plenty of designed runs as well.

Dobbins this season has 483 yards from scrimmage, and Ingram this season has 232 yards with two scores.
