Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins is out for the remainder of the season after suffering a torn Achilles during Sunday’s 25-9 win over the Houston Texans, head coach John Harbaugh announced, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.
“I’m crestfallen for him. He will be back. He’s a young guy,” Harbaugh said.
Dobbins limped off the field after getting tackled inside the red zone in the third quarter. He went to the locker room and was later ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Justice Hill and Gus Edwards shared the running back duties after Dobbins left. Hill rushed for two short touchdowns versus Houston.
Dobbins has an extensive injury history. The 24-year-old missed the first two games of last season after recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in the Ravens’ final preseason game in 2021. He’s appeared in only 24 games since being selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Dobbins is in the final year of his rookie contract.
Injuries also affected other Baltimore starters Sunday, as left tackle Ronnie Stanley, center Tyler Linderbaum, and safety Marcus Williams also went down with ailments. They’ll undergo MRIs to determine the extent of their injuries, Harbaugh said postgame, according to Jones Shaffer of The Baltimore Banner.
Stanley and Linderbaum suffered knee and ankle injuries, respectively. Meanwhile, Williams is feared to have torn his pec, a source told NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
