Gus Edwards Injury Update: What We Know About the Ravens RB

The Baltimore Ravens are already missing J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill. Now, fellow RB Gus Edwards is down with an injury. Here's the latest on the Ravens.

Already without J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill, the Baltimore Ravens could hardly afford to lose another running back in Week 3. But Gus Edwards suffered an injury against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.

What happened to Edwards on Sunday, and what’s his latest injury status?

Gus Edwards Injury Update

Edwards went to the blue medical tent during the fourth quarter of the Ravens’ Week 3 game. Baltimore subsequently indicated Edwards was being evaluated for a concussion.

He’s since departed for Baltimore’s locker room.

Edwards had been serving as Baltimore’s RB1 on Sunday. Dobbins suffered a torn Achilles in Week 1 and will miss the rest of the season. Hill couldn’t play today due to a toe injury, although he’s not dealing with a long-term concern.

Edwards, 28, joined the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He managed at least 700 rushing yards over his first three NFL seasons, but injuries held Edwards to just nine appearances from 2021-22.

Edwards inked a two-year, $10 million extension with Baltimore in June 2021. He’s playing in the final season of his contract and is scheduled to reach free agency next offseason.

The Ravens will play the division-rival Cleveland Browns next Sunday. If Edwards has a concussion, he’ll have to clear the NFL‘s protocols to be available for that contest.

Fantasy Fallout From Edwards’ Injury

With Edwards dinged up, Justice Hill sitting out, and J.K. Dobbins out for the season, it might be Lamar Jackson’s time to truly shine.

Prior to the injury to Edwards, Jackson already had a pair of scores on designed runs, a sign that Todd Monken’s comfort with his quarterback is growing.

Baltimore’s next two games aren’t fantasy-friendly (at CLE, at PIT), but Jackson’s unique skill set and the creative stylings of Monken could have Jackson as valuable as any QB outside of the Big Three.
