The run game remains at the core of the Baltimore Ravens offense.
After all, they are playing to their strengths, especially with a mobile quarterback like Lamar Jackson.
The former Louisville standout is the only quarterback in league history to have multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons.
He did not achieve the feat last season due to a season-ending ankle injury.
Despite the change in personnel, the Ravens still finished third in rushing with 145.8 yards per game.
But while there’s no word about Edwards’ return, Dobbins might be ready to go this season.

NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo tweeted, “#Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) was listed as limited today. Lamar Jackson says ‘hopefully he’ll be out in a couple of weeks.’ Do with that what you will.”
He mentioned this in response to a video posted on the Ravens’ official Twitter account.
In that clip, Jackson is describing Dobbins’ progress by saying, “Day by day, he’s getting better. I told him to slow down but he’s looking pretty good. Hopefully, he’ll be out in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to that guy, and he’s very eager to play, you know. I guess he’ll be handling the outside noise. He’ll be going, and I’m ready for him to go too.”
A Promising Career Derailed
Dobbins suffered a torn ACL during their final preseason game last year against the then-Washington Football Team.
It was an unfortunate development after he had 805 rushing yards and nine touchdowns during his rookie season.
Fast forward to 2022, and the Ravens did not place him on the physically unable to perform list.
Therefore, he could take the field whenever he is ready.
For now, there’s little chance of him playing in the season opener against the New York Jets.
