The Baltimore Ravens received devastating news on Thursday, finding out that they had lost running back Gus Edwards to a torn ACL. The injury ends Edwards’ 2021 season before it began, and now means that Baltimore currently has no production from 2020 on their roster now that Edwards, J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill will be on injured reserve and Mark Ingram II is with the Houston Texans.
The Ravens have signed a plethora of running backs to help soften the blow of losing the talented rushers in Le’Veon Bell, Trenton Cannon, and Devonta Freeman. However they aren’t’ done, as Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reported that the team is working on finalizing a deal with veteran running back Latavius Murray.
The Ravens aren’t done bringing in veteran RBs. Per sources, they are working on finalizing a deal with Latavius Murray. Should get done.

Murray is an accomplished NFL player, totaling 1,191 carries for 4,991 yards and 43 rushing touchdowns. He also has caught 185 passes for 1,294 in yards and two receiving touchdowns. He’ll now compete for snaps in what is suddenly a crowded running back room, but it remains to be seen whether he’ll play at all on Monday night against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1.
