The Ravens plan to activate Gordon from the practice squad with J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) having suffered another season-ending injury, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports.
Gordon spent training camp and the preseason in Baltimore, so he should be familiar with coordinator Todd Monken's scheme, and he'll join a backfield suddenly in serious need of quality contributors. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill look like the favorites to handle the bulk of the Ravens' carries, but Gordon could step in as the No. 3 option beginning with a Week 2 tilt against the Bengals. Undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell (shoulder) won't be able to return from IR until Week 5 at the earliest.
