Can JK Dobbins Play Week 1? Recent Updates on His Injury

JK Dobbins Injury

JK Dobbins Injury

JK Dobbins is an American football running back for the Baltimore Ravens of the NFL who was picked by the Ravens in the second round of the NFL 2020 Draft. During the 2021 season, he had a torn ACL while playing against the Washington Football Team in August, after which he was subsequently put on injured reserve.

Now, it has been over a year since he was unable to play because of his injury and this is also keeping his presence for this season in question. 

Earlier this month reports were claiming Dobbins would probably be set to play the first game of the season and since then the report has been growing on a positive track. Recently, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network claimed that the running back could not be available for the first week.

And the same day running back Kenyan Drake who has been recently removed from the Raiders was signed by the Ravens.

Do you know what Michael Oher’s Net Worth is? Oher, a former offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens, played in the NFL for eight seasons before retiring. We have discussed Michael Oher’s current career and his wealth.

Fantasy Football Significance

The Baltimore Ravens’ backfield is a secret for fantasy football however a recovered Dobbins should dominate the list amongst their running backs. Following him, the list includes Drake, Justice Hill and Mike Davis. For the unversed Gus Edwards is also placed on injured reserve.

In a scenario where we couldn’t see Dobbins’ comeback, Davis was supposed to manage most of the work to begin the season. It is possibly apt to move with that perception for fantasy planning given that Drake is also going to be in the mix as well. Drake has more fantasy upside he showed much more pop on the field last season than Davis.

Let’s have a look at some recent updates on JK Dobbins’ injury.

Dobbins’ status for the first week is still in the talks however head coach John Harbaugh confirmed that it depends on how he practices and whether they “see what they need to see” from him, according to Jonas Shaffer. Keeping him out of fantasy teams is best even if he plays as he gets trained.

The Dobbins discourse keeps on experiencing twists and turns. During a conference with the media on Wednesday, quarterback Lamar Jackson stated that Dobbins is improving with each passing day. Later he continued saying “Hopefully, he’ll be out in a couple of weeks,” apparently hinting at his absence at the beginning of the season.
