Coach John Harbaugh mentioned Turner (hamstring) when discussing the Ravens' desire to add a big-play threat in the backfield, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. "I like the idea of adding a shifty, third-down, home-run-type hitter guy," Harbaugh said. "We might have him already. We had a pretty good rookie last year (Turner) who got hurt early in the season."
Turner caught on with Baltimore as an undrafted rookie in 2018, spending one week on the practice squad and four on the active roster before a hamstring injury allowed the team to stash him on injured reserve. His 214-pound frame and 4.53 40 time don't exactly support Harbaugh's assessment, but Turner did have a 65-yard touchdown run during the final week of the preseason. Turner will enter the offseason program fourth or fifth on the depth chart at running back, with Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon occupying the top three spots.
Turner has been dealing with an injured hamstring throughout the week, and it turns out the issue is serious enough to keep him sidelined for what will likely be the remainder of the season. He only logged one carry for four yards and two receptions for 17 yards through four games, as he primarily provided depth at running back behind Alex Collins and Javorius Allen.
Turner (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Turner was unable to practice late in the week after logging a limited session Wednesday, so he won't suit up Week 6 after totaling eight offensive snaps over the Ravens' past two contests. The one-two punch of Alex Collins and Javorius Allen will lead Baltimore's backfield again Sunday.
Turner (hamstring) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Turner was limited Wednesday, so his condition may have gotten worse. If he can't get healthy for Week 6's game against the Titans, the team could promote Gus Edwards to add depth. Turner has just one rush over four games, however, so his absence wouldn't affect the fantasy realm.
Turner was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury.
It's unclear as to where exactly Turner sustained the injury, but his availability for Sunday's game appears to be in slight jeopardy. Should Turner convert to a full participant at any point during this week's practice, it's expected that he would play in Sunday's contest.
