Gus Edwards’ injury update seemed to have allayed most of the Baltimore Ravens’ worries. The running back’s status to play against the New Orleans Saints on Monday is still listed as uncertain.
On Friday, Edwards (hamstring) missed his second straight practice. Since making a comeback two weeks ago, the 27-year-old has ran 27 times for 131 yards and two touchdowns. The challenge in this situation is that the Ravens’ game is on Monday night.
Edwards missed this week’s team practices after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 8’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The good news, though, is that his injuries is not as severe as first thought.
According to reports, Edwards will only be out for a short while and will soon be able to play again. In the two games he has played this season, the 27-year-old has looked as sharp as ever.
Edwards had recently returned from a significant knee injury. Due to an ACL tear, the running back was forced to sit out the whole 2021 NFL season. In Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season, his return gave Baltimore a huge boost.
However, Edwards might have overworked his muscles as a result of playing in two games for the Ravens over the course of five days. For Baltimore in Week 9, Kenyan Drake is anticipated to be the starting running back owing to the absence of JK Dobbins due to a knee injury.
