Michele Tafoya of NBC Sports said on the "Dan Patrick Show" this morning that the Ravens will be without running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram against the Steelers this afternoon.
Both Dobbins and Ingram are eligible to come off the reserve/COVID-19 list today, but they did not fly with the team last night and they were reportedly expected to fly this morning to Pittsburgh.
With Dobbins and Ingram expected to not play, the Ravens will rely on Gus Edwards and Justice Hill to carry the load at running back. Edwards rushed for 130 yards on 21 carries )6.2 average) against the Steelers in Week 17 of last year. Hill also rushed for 39 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown in that game.
The Ravens have until 12:30 p.m. today to elevate players from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. The same applies if the Ravens were to take Dobbins and Ingram off the reserve/COVID-19 list and active them to play. But it's not expected for Dobbins or Ingram to play against the Steelers.
