Ingram is signing with the Texans on a one-year contract worth up to $3 million, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Ravens released Ingram in January after he closed out the 2020 season buried behind J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards on the depth chart. A move to Houston should lead Ingram to some carries, but he'll likely enter camp behind David Johnson, who restructured his contract just last week. Johnson now has $4.25 million guaranteed out of a potential $6 million in 2021 compensation, so there's no question the Texans made more of a commitment to him than to Ingram. The ongoing Deshaun Watson situation makes it hard to get a read on the team context in Houston, but it's probably safe to say Ingram won't be a TD machine in his age-31/32 season.
Ingram has been waived by the Ravens, Ryan Mink of the team's official site reports.
Ingram became an afterthought in team's rushing attack as the 2020 season progressed, with J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards emerging as the team's lead backs. The Ravens will save $5 million against their 2021 salary cap with the move. The 2011 first-rounder will now look to catch on elsewhere after finishing up his second campaign with Baltimore with 72 carries for 299 yards and two TDs in 11 games, to go along with six catches for 50 yards.
Ingram has been informed by the Ravens he will be released on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Ingram was a frequent healthy scratch in the later half of the Ravens' season and is owed $5 million next year, so this is not a surprising outcome. He posted career-low numbers across the board in 2020, ending the campaign with 299 yards and two touchdowns on 72 rushing attempts. It looks like the 31-year-old will have to look for a new opportunity in the offseason.
Ingram (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's playoff game against the Bills.
With Ingram inactive Saturday, as expected, Baltimore's backfield is in line to be led by J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, with Justice Hill also on hand.
Ingram is on track to be a healthy scratch for Saturday night's divisional-round playoff game against the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
This anticipated outcome isn't surprising, considering Ingram was inactive for last Sunday's playoff opener against the Titans. Per Schefter, the veteran running back is "fully healthy and is said to understand that this is a business decision for Baltimore due to salary-cap considerations." Ingram will be an option in the event that the Ravens advance, but versus Buffalo, the team's backfield is in line to feature J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, with Justice Hill in reserve.
Ingram (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Titans, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.
With Ingram not in uniform Sunday, Baltimore's backfield duties in the team's postseason opener will be handled by J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.
Ingram had 72 carries for 299 yards and two touchdowns in 2020 and added six catches for 50 yards over 11 games.
The veteran's production fell off a cliff after an impressive first season with the club in 2019. Ingram had a consistent role early in the season until suffering an ankle injury in Week 6; he had 50 carries for 225 yards and two touchdowns in that span but then missed five of the next 10 games. By the time Ingram got healthy, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards had solidified themselves as the clear top two options in the backfield. Ingram enters next season on the final year of his three-year, $15,000,000 contract and carries a $6.3-million cap hit with $1.3-million in dead cap.
Ingram (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
The 31-year-old wasn't expected to play Sunday despite being listed as questionable, yet he'll be suiting up for Week 17. Gus Edwards (back) and J.K. Dobbins should continue to lead Baltimore's backfield, so Ingram is unlikely to be much of an offensive factor.
Ingram (illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, isn't expected to suit up, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The report doesn't specify where exactly Ingram stands in his recovery from the illness, but the veteran had already been a healthy inactive in both of the Ravens' last two games. With Gus Edwards (back) listed as questionable but expected to play Week 17, Baltimore should have each of its top three running backs available for the regular-season finale. As a result, look for Ingram to once again find himself as the odd man out.
Ingram (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals after logging a full practice Friday.
Meanwhile, Gus Edwards (back) is listed as questionable after being limited at practice Friday. Even if Ingram gains clearance to play this weekend, he would likely need for Edwards to sit out in order to avoid the inactive list. Ingram was a healthy scratch in the past two games when the Baltimore backfield was at full strength.
Ingram (illness) isn't participating in practice Thursday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Ingram's ailment isn't related to COVID-19, as he previously tested positive for the coronavirus in late November. He missed one game while waiting to clear the league's health and safety protocols, but shortly after returning to the 53-man roster, Ingram lost hold his starting role to J.K. Dobbins. With Gus Edwards also working ahead of him and Justice Hill's special-teams prowess earning him a spot as the Ravens' third-string back, Ingram has been a healthy inactive for the past two games. Even if he overcomes his illness in time for Sunday's regular-season finale in Cincinnati, Ingram could find himself on the Ravens' inactive list for a third straight week.
Ingram didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness.
Ingram has been a healthy inactive in consecutive games, so if he can't overcome his illness in time for Sunday's game in Cincinnati, the Ravens' backfield plans likely wouldn't be affected. J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards have clearly established themselves as the Ravens' top running backs.
Ingram (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.
He'll be a healthy inactive for the second straight week, as J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are locked in as the Ravens' top two running backs, while third-stringer Justice Hill is valued for his contributions on special teams. Unless one of Dobbins or Edwards misses time with an injury, Ingram may not see the field again this season.
Ingram (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
The veteran tailback played only one offensive snap last week against the Browns and now finds himself as a healthy scratch for this weekend's contest. Gus Edwards has established himself as Baltimore's secondary back behind J.K. Dobbins, and Justice Hill's work on special teams makes him a more valuable option for the depth role. Ingram may not see the field again this season if his fellow running backs remain healthy.
Ingram logged no touches while playing just one of the Ravens' 60 offensive snaps Monday in the team's 47-42 win over the Browns.
Ingram's role within the Baltimore offense had already been declining steadily since he returned to action Week 10 following a two-game absence due to an ankle sprain, but Monday represented a new low for the 30-year-old. He played fewer snaps than any of the other running backs on the 53-man roster, as all of J.K. Dobbins (37), Gus Edwards (16) and Justice Hill (six) outpaced him. Hill's usage ahead of Ingram in particular is notable, as the second-year player had previously been limited almost exclusively to a special-teams role when Baltimore has been at full strength in the backfield. Given that head coach John Harbaugh seems comfortable proceeding with Dobbins and Edwards as the Ravens' primary options in the backfield, it wouldn't be surprising if Ingram was a healthy inactive for any of the team's final three regular-season contests.
Ingram rushed six times for 28 yards and caught his lone target for a one-yard gain in Tuesday's 34-17 win over the Cowboys.
After being activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list over the weekend, Ingram picked up the start against Dallas, but he still found himself third in the pecking order at running back. He finished with just 11 snaps on offense, behind both J.K. Dobbins (21) and Gus Edwards (18). The three backs will presumably be part of a rotation moving forward, with the rookie Dobbins probably representing the most appealing fantasy option of the trio thanks to his ability to contribute both as a runner and pass catcher. Ingram still will command his fair share of work, but he'll likely need to score most weeks to pay dividends for those that deploy him in fantasy lineups.
Ingram was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.
The backfield-by-committee approach has completely capped Ingram's fantasy upside regardless of his health, but it'll be interesting to see how the Ravens deploy their veteran back considering the emergence of J.K. Dobbins, who was also activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, and the continual production of Gus Edwards. For the moment, third-string quarterback Trace McSorley is projected to take the snaps under center, which might further limit the Ravens' offense, but Lamar Jackson could join a number of his other teammates to be activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list once he's eligible to return Sunday.
Ingram (illness) was cleared to return to the Ravens' facility Friday, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Ingram remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list and therefore hasn't resumed practicing with the team, but his presence at the facility suggests his return to the 53-man roster is imminent. Considering Ingram has been away with the team since testing positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 23, the Ravens may not be counting on him to handle a major role even if he gains clearance for Tuesday's game against the Cowboys. With J.K. Dobbins having beaten him back from the reserve/COVID-19 list and Gus Edwards also on hand, Ingram's fantasy upside will be capped by the Ravens' backfield committee even after his recovery from the coronavirus is further in the rear-view mirror.
Ingram (illness) and fellow running back J.K. Dobbins (illness) didn't play Wednesday as part of a "medical decision," Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. "Are they physically ready to go where it's related to the COVID? Or physically ready to go to play in a game like that without practice? Those are all the things that doctors take into consideration," coach John Harbaugh said Thursday.
Ingram tested positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 23 and he theoretically could have played Wednesday, but Harbaugh's comments suggest that the lack of practice time made that infeasible. Ingram could be back for Tuesday's game against Dallas if he's able to log some practice time, however. Dobbins is in a similar situation, and if either he or Ingram is not yet at 100 percent for Tuesday, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill stand to take on most of the backfield work.
Ingram (illness) won't be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Wednesday's game against the Steelers, Michele Tafoya of NBC Sports reports.
Tafoya added that J.K. Dobbins (illness) won't be activated from the list either, with Kimberley A. Martin of ESPN relaying that neither running back flew with the team to Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. With both Ingram and Dobbins sidelined, Gus Edwards is in line to start Week 12, and he should take on the bulk of the carries while fourth-stringer Justice Hill works as the top change-of-pace option out of the backfield. Assuming Ingram doesn't experience any setbacks in his recovery from the coronavirus and is able to test negative for COVID-19 in the upcoming days, he should have a chance at returning to action in the Ravens' Week 13 matchup with the Cowboys on Dec. 8.
