Gus Edwards (knee) 'probably doubtful' for Ravens' opener

Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (knee) is "probably doubtful for Week 1," according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.

What It Means:

The Ravens removed J.K. Dobbins (knee) from the PUP list Monday, but Edwards appears to be a long-shot for Week 1 against the New York Jets. Mike Davis and rookie Tyler Badie could see a boost to begin the season if Edwards is sidelined, with Dobbins leading the way in the backfield. Once healthy, Edwards is expected to be the primary backup to Dobbins.

numberFire's models currently project Edwards for 7.1 touches and 35.0 yards per game this season with 3.00 touchdowns. Dobbins is expected to lead the Ravens' backfield with 14.7 touches per contest and he is the RB22 in our preseason rankings.
