The #Ravens cut short practice today after CB Marcus Peters and RB Gus Edwards sustained potentially significant knee injuries on back-to-back plays, per me and @MikeGarafolo. The team is having tests done on both players.

2021 Ravens starting RBs
Ty'son and Bell tandem.
Add murray too.
I was surprised to find out that Murray is two years older than Bell. He's definitely going to get picked up by the Ravens though.
He got done a bit dirty by the Saints. They ask him to take a pay cut 5 days before season starts. Thinking his back is against the wall and he would most likely say yes.
Drop Penny for him? I’ve got Carson
I smell RBBC all year but hoping tyson goes bonkers.
I’m thinking Todd Gurley
Because their running back room is so good at taking care of knees? Haha
Ah so my 0 RB strategy has become a -1 RB strategy great
People laugh at me when I don’t start picking up RBs until the 10th or so but look who’s laughing now 😢
Has that strategy ever worked for you? Genuinely curious cause my RB 1 was deadass a fifth or sixth round pick until I traded for two 3rd/4th round caliber RBs. RB is still my weakest position regardless but it was a massive upgrade
Not every year, but enough to were it’s my permanent strategy. If I’m pick 1 or 2 obviously I’ll pick CMac or Murray. But most the time I try to grab a SUPER strong Tier 1 TE that’s impossible to fill later on. I wish I could remember specifics, but last year I drafted Kelce 8th overall, grabbed a couple handcuffs around the 10th and had strong QB (Lamar) and receiving corps. Picked up Rob1nson before he blew up. I made the playoffs but didn’t place.
Murray as in Kyler Murray? With the 2nd overall pick?
Demarco Murray maybe?
Shit my bad. Dalvin Cook. In my head I was thinking Latavius Murray. I always got the Vikings RBs mixed up haha.
He was on the saints lol
He used to play for the vikings too
Haha which I guess proves my knowledge of first round RBs
Ravens are apparently trying the 0 RB strategy too
thank god i kept ty’son williams
Dropped him for Tony Jones Jr. two days ago. What a bummer
Damn near did the same yesterday, real happy I didn't.
You dropped Ty'Son after Hill got injured?
Dropped him after Murray got cut from the Saints yeah
God I passed on him 2 days ago. Picking up bell as we speak
Hell hasn’t played real football for nearly 3 years. I think he has potential but I’d be weary
Hey I’m the guy who tells you that “weary” means tired and you want to say “wary” or “leery” anyway good luck!
Damn lol thanks homie
They're just really worn down and tired from all of these RB injuries. It's been a long season.
He didn't play 3 years ago. He had 6 TDs and over 1600 all purpose yards in the last 2 years, mostly from 2019.
Haha same. I picked him up and dropped him for Tony Jones. And picked him up again last night. It’s been a hell of a rollercoaster and week 1 hasn’t started yet. Fantasy football is back.
Watch his preseason highlights. Looks shifty and doesn't go down easy, looks real solid IMO.
There's still 3 days until they play. They should put him in a wheel chair until the first game and see if that clears up some of the bad juju in the practice facility
Idk what I was expecting but that was surprisingly impressive. The one run against the panthers in particular was straight nasty!
Ty’son Williams 2020 Pro Day
Cones - 6.81 (1st)
Bench - 24 (3rd)
Shuffle - 4.21 (5th)
Dash - 4.48 (6th)
He looked good in preseason. But, that was against other backups, so take that with a grain of salt. Honestly, it's his job right now. If he preforms big on Monday, it will be his job.
Picked him up and dropped ty Johnson and was killing myself for it. Now, I’ve lucked into two random pickups that might’ve progressed into big moves (grabbed Mac the day before cam was dropped)
The Bus has crashed, Peters *did* say he was going to be riding it.
Something must be wrong with the ravens practice field.
They practicing in the NY stadium or something?
I was making joke about last year's injuries at the NY stadium. It was a big deal last year.
I was joking too. FedEx Field is horrible
Ah shit lol 😆 we good fam 🤌
Maybe not anymore, they completely redid the field this off season. Finally.
This is either poorly maintained artificial turf or they practiced on soft ground.
Concrete. They're practicing in the parking lot.
With metal cleats
You come heavy or you don't come at all.
Man first thing I thought of
That's gotta be the most Cursed Reddit thread in this subs history. I think OP even deleted it haha.
Wow. So I have Ty’son Williams on all three leagues this year. Someone get him on bubble wrap!
Threw a last round dart on him in my leagues. Could be a huge payoff.
How can I already hate a football season so much that hasn't started?
Because we're all playing fantasy. Lol
I literally drafted gus last night. I could not have waited any longer what the fuck
This is why you draft 4 hours before the first Thursday game smh
I don't draft until after the season ends in order to avoid all injuries.
[FantasyPros](https://www.fantasypros.com/nfl/perfect-draft/) has you covered.
And retroactively apply points
This is why you draft week 17
This came out 10 mintues after I drafted him. Then Williams got picked up before it was my turn again.. Fuck.
I drafted Gus 2 hours ago
I've got a draft that will start 10 minutes into the season. lol
Same same. He was going to be my flex (Henry and Gibson are my other RB's). Welcome to the lineup Antonio Brown!
Was also gonna be my flex and chose to wait for gus over James Robinson. Pain
Damn, that sucks. I don't even want to look at my draft results and see who went after I grabbed Gus lol.
lol thats freaking spooky cause I had the same situation lol
Working out pretty well for you so far
Only [immediate] starter I drafted in both my leagues (last night and the night before). Was reading up on the hype surrounding him and was super happy and then I get this alert as I'm reading.
I also just drafted him last night. I even drafted him instead of a WR because right after I got ekeler in the late 2nd I got the notification about his hamstring concern. Great start to the season already
As a Ravens fan: Jesus Christ.
Kinda old & those feet? Washed
I am in shambles
Wake me up inside
Can’t wake up
By god that’s Christine Michael’s music
That's definitely the goofy version of this song
This team is so cursed.
Someone get an old priest and a young priest
More like a posterior cruciate ligament and an anterior crucible ligament.
Sick... as... a dog
Who’s the rb pickup here?
Just dropped David Johnson for him. Might as well take that chance on him
In before Ravens trade for David Johnson
Was just thinking that but i'll take that L when it comes across my table
If anything they'd probably get Ingram or Lindsay. I can't see Houston parting with Johnson given the price they paid. They'd get thrashed by the media due to that sunk cost.
Edit: as others have said Murray is a possibility too, though I think they just got Lev Bell
No, not Ty’Son. You know why? Because I had Dobbins. Then I traded for Edwards, AND I picked up Ty’Son. Please, everyone, do yourselves a favor and avoid this backfield, I don’t know the weight of my own curse.
Dropping Tyson asap
Well thanks bro
Just because I can’t win doesn’t mean I should hold any of you back.
Doing the Lord’s work 🙏
Do us all a solid, including Ty'son, and just drop him now.
We'll owe you one.
Honestly at this point throw a dart that Murray gets signed.
This. Would rather stash Latavius than Le'Veon tbh.
Has Latavius already gone through waivers? Is he subject to them? Why wouldn't the Ravens have signed him over Bell if that were the case?
Veterans don’t go through waivers. I think it’s defined as anyone with more than 4 years in the league
He just left the saints because he didn’t want to take a pay cut. Idk if they’ll have the money for him
I think they signed Bell the day Murray was cut so the wheels were probably already in motion.
What about Murray over Coleman?
I'd call Tevin's ceiling the top back in a RBBC in a presumptively bad-to-mediocre offense.
I'd call Latavius' ceiling the top back in one of the most potent rushing / scoring offenses in the league.
Hope that helps.
Actually a pretty solid way to look at it. I ended up swapping in Murray for Coleman with the hope he is signed. I still have Ty Johnson on my bench which I guess is my Jets wildcard
No one needs multiple Jets wildcards.
FWIW, I'd still hold Latavius post-Devonta signing.
Is there any reason to think Murray would see more work than Bell? He's two years older than Bell, and unlike Bell he never put up elite numbers.
That’s not true. When he was filling in for Kamara he was a stud, and when he was starting for the raiders he did fairly well.
Murray wasn’t on a practice squad... not a bold take to say he’s got more in the tank than bell
Someone just dropped Murray and I'm thinkin he passes through waivers. But I'm scooping as soon as he does.
Ty’Son and Bell
he’s not even on the team though
Neither is bell or ja rule
Ja Rule ROS?
Not bad for an RB.
I dropped Tyson for tony Jones. Fuck
Same!!! Really debated dropping Pollard instead and couldn’t make myself do it
Id love that but idk this team sinkin like the 49ers lol
Lamar Jackson opts out for the season
This looks awful from an organizational perspective. Like what is going on with your training program?
losing Dobbins and Gus before season starts… just kinda drains the fun for me
Lol Leveon might actually be fantasy relevant. Who woulda thunk it
They laughed when I added him across all leagues.
They'll laugh when you can never start him and when you do he scores 3.8.
Wtf is wrong with that field
Everything. That’s why I stay away from it lol
What the fuck are they practicing on a bed of river rocks or something
I just accepted a trade for Waddle for Ty this morning....fuck
Holy shit who the fuck are these trainers for the Ravens?
No fucking way
My Gus Bus! No!
wtf is going on in Baltimore
fuck cutting practice short, CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES
Schefter is also saying it sounds like a torn ACL and I didn't even wait for it be confirmed. Dropped Gus for Ty'Son
Have Lindsay and Carter on the bench.
Drop for Ty'Son? Bell? Murray?
Or just...avoid any Baltimore RBs until they stop accidentally desecrating that Native American burial ground?
I’m trying to drop Carter for him
So do I drop Gus and pick up Bell? Or wait for the official out for season?
Edit: Just did it before someone else in my league decides to pick up Bell. As I would think less people would drop someone to pick up a potentially out for the season player.
Someone call AAA... seems the bus might need an assist.
Were they practicing on a slip n slide?
Ended up autodrafting Ty'Son Williams (had to leave the draft midway) and I'm super pumped! Really unfortunate new for the Gus Bus tho, he's always seemed like a good dude
Ravens fear Gus tore his ACL per Schefter
Same for Marcus Peters. Would affect Ravens D and WRs playing against them.
Mike Ty'Son delivering KO punches left and right.
Zero RB is a ticket straight to the house of horrors
Bus has deflated :(
RIP Gus Bus
Are you fucking kidding
This years 49ers.
Bell stocks rising????
They think ACL for Edwards...ooof
Ty'Son Sea'Son really is here now 😢
Had shares of him everywhere and had to reach to get him. Ain’t fantasy a kick in the teeth?
This why you wait til last day of the offseason to draft.
Bro just cancel the Ravens season
who scooped trent cannon
What’s the new outlook for Ravens DST?
Dr Death is their on their medical team for sure
Everyone saying “this backfield isn’t worth it” definitely thought they had the steal of the season in Gus lol
Who’s the next RB in the lineup?
Ugh and i just drafted gus bus 😕
Lamar seriously might need to be a running back now.
The hell are the Ravens doing to their backs?
Someone gave this news a silver? Come on man.
Dude what the fuck is going on with Baltimore
I'd have to drop James Connor. Dang these roster restrictions.
On one side I just got the potential RB1 of the Ravens on the other hand my defense got worse.
I hate this hobby
So it’s good I picked up Bell off waivers two days ago?
Ravens strength and conditioning coach Steve Saunders spread covid throughout the team last Nov. Lots of resume editing ahead
Looks like the Gus bus is out of gas
Man, I was so optimistic getting Edwards for cheap, before the Dobbins injury.
Complete 180 whiplash now, now my season feels hopeless.
They need to test why their backs are getting injured. Better stretching or something.
What is wrong with their practice field?
drop Tony Jones for Leveon or Cannon?
Tyson already taken?
I dropped Ty’Son for Tony Jones, oh well.
Or Ty’son Williams..
I dropped tony jones for ty'son rn
