The Baltimore Ravens have been dealing with plenty of injuries since before the season started. After Week 1, yet another player is going to miss time with injury.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that running back Danny Woodhead is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a hamstring injury. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports, however, that it may be 6-8 weeks and that Woodhead is a candidate for injured reserve. He suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also dealt with the issue during the preseason as well.
Woodhead has not played a full game of football since Week 1 of last season when he was with the Chargers. He went down with a torn ACL in Week 2, ending his season. In the short time he played on Sunday, he had 1 carry for four yards and three receptions for 33 yards. Woodhead’s injury likely means Terrance West and Javorius “Buck” Allen will earn more snaps.
Woodhead entered the league undrafted in 2008. He played his first regular season game with the New York Jets in 2009. He spent three seasons with the New England Patriots and four with the Chargers before signing a three-year deal with the Ravens this offseason.
