Kenneth Dixon: Cut loose from Jets
Dixon was waived by the Jets on Wednesday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
The 26-year-old running back was a fourth-round pick for the Ravens back in 2016, and while he's been the subject of fantasy-football hype on a few different occasions, injuries have been the major theme of Dixon's pro career. He's unlikely to make an NFL roster for Week 1, though he appears to be healthy at the moment.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenneth Dixon: Ready to rumble
Dixon (illness) has a clean bill of health entering the 2020 season, News4Jax.com reports.
Dixon missed all of 2019 with a knee injury and then an illness, but he has completely recovered ahead of the 2020 campaign. The 26-year-old last saw game action for the Ravens in 2018, but he's expected to compete for a reserve role with the Jets in camp.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenneth Dixon: Won't play Sunday
Dixon (illness) is ruled out for Sunday's divisional contest against the Bills, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Dixon will miss Sunday's regular-season finale due to an illness. In his stead, Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery will operate as the sole backups to top running back Le'Veon Bell.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenneth Dixon: Status for Sunday uncertain
Dixon (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Dixon popped up on the injury report Thursday with the ailment and logged limited practice time in Friday's session. The veteran was signed by the team Dec. 18, so even if he's healthy enough to play, he'll likely provide depth for a fairly healthy running back corps in Week 17.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kenneth Dixon: Joins Jets
Dixon (knee) signed a contract with the Jets on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old spent the preseason with the Ravens but fractured his kneecap and was let go with an injury settlement at roster cutdowns. Dixon had 60 carries for 333 yards and two touchdowns in six games with Baltimore last season, but he's unlikely to play a significant role in the backfield down the stretch in New York....

Kenneth Dixon: Garners interest from Texans
Dixon (knee) worked out with the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Dixon suffered a fractured knee during the preseason and was waived from IR with an injury settlement by the Ravens on Sept. 2. It appears Dixon may be at full health, but it remains to be seen how his knee responded to the workout. Dixon has registered 148 carries for 715 yards and two touchdowns while catching 36 passes for 213 yards and a score over 18 NFL games since entering the league in 2016.... See More ... See Less
Kenneth Dixon: Released with injury settlement
Dixon, who has a fractured knee, will be released by the Ravens with an injury settlement, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Due to the nature of his injury, it will be some time before Dixon will be able to consider catching on with another team. With the Ravens having moved on from the 2016 fourth-rounder, he'll look to reboot his career elsewhere once he's fully recovered from his knee injury.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Fractures knee
Dixon suffered a fractured knee, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Placed on injured reserve over the weekend, Dixon is expected to be waived/injured in the coming days. Coach John Harbaugh said the 2016 fourth-round pick will be moving on from the Ravens, though the nature of his injury suggests Dixon won't be able to play in games anytime soon, even if he finds an interested team....

Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Lands on IR
Dixon (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
It's a bit strange to see Dixon hit injured reserve without any information regarding what sort of injury, but considering he'll miss the entire 2019 season it's clear it's serious. Justice Hill stands to benefit the most from Dixon's absence, as the rookie running back is expected to heavily factor in as a receiving back -- a role Dixon would have likely split had he not suffered the undisclosed injury....

Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Caps preseason with 66 yards
Dixon rushed for 66 yards on 13 carries during Thursday's 20-7 win over Washington.
Dixon's been dealing with a knee injury in recent weeks, but showed plenty of wiggle in the preseason finale, particularly on a 16-yard run he bounced to the right edge late in the first quarter. Dixon's kind of in a weird spot. On one hand, depth running backs are more valuable in Baltimore than other squads given the presumed emphasis that will be placed on the run. On the other, Dixon was already passed over by the emergence of Gus Edwards, only to see the Ravens add veteran Mark Ingram and rookie fourth-round pick Justice Hill in the offseason. Dixon's roster status is uncertain.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Returns from knee issue
Dixon (knee) returned to Tuesday's joint practice session with the Eagles, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Dixon appeared to play through the injury during last week's preseason win over Green Bay, getting some work with the first-team offense en route to finishing with six carries for 14 yards and one catch for nine yards. It isn't clear if he'll be available for Thursday's exhibition versus Philadelphia, but the usage last week at least suggests Dixon is on track for a roster spot -- something that came into question after the Ravens used a fourth-round pick on Justice Hill. The team's run-first approach makes it easy enough to justify a roster with four running backs in Dixon, Hill, Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Misses two more practices
Dixon (knee) didn't practice Sunday or Monday, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The same goes for Gus Edwards, who hasn't been reported with any injury. The Ravens may be down to Mark Ingram, Justice Hill, De'Lance Turner and Tyler Ervin in the backfield for Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Misses practice Saturday
Dixon did not participate in Saturday's practice due to a knee injury, Jeff Zrebiec of the Athletic reports.
The extent of Dixon's knee issue is a bit unclear at this point, but his status for Thursday's preseason tilt against the Eagles may be up in the air. His spot on the 53-man roster is far from a guarantee, so he'll look to return in a timely manner as he competes for a depth role at running back behind Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards.... See More ...

Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: May be on roster bubble
Dixon did not make Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic's initial roster projection after Baltimore's first preseason game.
This is just one beat writer's projection with plenty of time to go in the preseason, but it provides some insight into Dixon's current standing in the roster shuffle. Dixon is in the final year of his rookie deal after three underwhelming seasons and Baltimore made several big additions to the backfield in the offseason. Keeping Dixon would mean keeping four running backs on the 53-man roster, a practice that's becoming less and less common in today's NFL, especially when that said back does not contribute on special teams, as Zrebiec notes. Dixon will need to have a splashy preseason to break camp with the Ravens.... See More ... See Less
Ravens' Kenneth Dixon: Gains 21 yards in opener
Dixon ran for 21 yards on four carries during Thursday's 29-0 win over Jacksonville.
Veteran acquisition Mark Ingram did not carry the ball Thursday and so Dixon mixed in with Gus Edwards during Baltimore's first couple of drives. He stayed behind long enough to pop off a 16-yard gain with Trace McSorley at quarterback. It'll be worth watching in the next few weeks whether Baltimore keeps Dixon in the shuffle when Ingram is in the mix, or if Dixon will be relegated to a more traditional third-string role as the preseason moves on....
