Forsett (arm) was officially placed on the injured reserve list Friday. Forsett was already ruled out for the remainder of the season with his broken arm and his move to the IR comes as no surprise. The Ravens will now look to a combination of Javorius Allen, Raheem Mostert, and Terrance West to fill the void.
Forsett, who suffered a broken right arm Sunday, is undergoing surgery Monday, the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports. Though the running back is done for the season and presumably headed for IR, coach John Harbaugh noted Monday of Forsett that he "would expect Justin back next year full speed and ready to go." In the meantime, Javorius Allen will step in as the Ravens' starting running back, with Raheem Mostert and Terrance West in the mix to see complementary work in the team's backfield moving forward.
Forsett suffered a broken arm during Sunday's game against the Rams. Forsett had an air cast put on his right arm after suffering the injury and was immediately taken to the locker room, with the team quickly announcing that it was broken. Javorius Allen is expected to get a vast majority of the touches in Forsett's absence, which could certainly extend to the rest of the season.
Forsett recorded 53 yards on 14 carries, and caught all four of his targets for 11 more yards in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. Forsett remained relatively quiet despite being fresh off a bye week. The 30-year-old running back still has just two touchdowns in what has been a disappointing season to date.
Forsett rushed 17 times for 69 yards and caught his only target for five receiving yards Sunday against the Chargers. Forsett has now gone three straight games with fewer than 70 rushing yards, and he has just two touchdowns in eight games this season. However, the Ravens may need to give him even more touches in the weeks to come, as top wideout Steve Smith will miss the rest of the season with a torn Achilles. The Ravens are off in Week 9, so fantasy owners will have to look for an alternative before the Jags visit in Week 10.
