Dobbins is likely to miss the coming campaign with a knee injury, Gus Edwards is poised to lead Baltimore's backfield heading into the 2021 regular season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Edwards has been effective in a lead role for the team in the past, and with Dobbins no longer in line to lead the way out of the gate this season, the 26-year-old -- who logged 144 carries for 723 yards and six TDs in 2020 -- is in line for expanded work, notably on early downs.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Replaces injured Dobbins

    Gus Edwards took two carries for 27 yards in Saturday's preseason game against Washington, while teammate J.K. Dobbins left early with a knee/leg injury, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.The injury didn't look good, with Dobbins going down for a couple minutes before he was helped off by trainers and later carted to the locker room. Edwards didn't get much work Friday night, but he may now be the Week 1 starter and lead back in a road matchup with the Raiders on Monday Night Football (Sept. 13). The Baltimore Ravens' other tailbacks are Justice Hill (who missed Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury), Ty'Son Williams and Nate McCrary.

    Gus Edwards ran for 28 yards on four carries in Saturday's preseason game against Carolina.Edwards was effective as he almost always is. J.K. Dobbins likely is the clear lead back for Baltimore because of his uncommon talent, but Edwards might be an above average running back talent in his own right. Although not much of it will occur on passing downs, Edwards should be a steady off-the-bench contributor for Baltimore.

He may just be working his way back into game shape, still catching up with teammates that didn't miss the early portion of camp.

Dobbins has been expected to be the leader of the backfield this season, but Edwards carries enough cachet to warrant a significant role as well.
