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.
Turner had one carry for four yards and added a 10-yard reception Sunday against Pittsburgh.
The undrafted rookie saw the first offensive touches of his career Sunday. Turner saw his lone carry in the third quarter when the game still hung in the balance and followed it up with a reception midway through the fourth quarter. Still, he's an emergency third option out of the backfield behind Alex Collins and Javorius Allen. Barring injury to either of those two, Turner figures to have a very minor role in the Baltimore offense moving forward.
