Friday AM update: Mark Ingram returned to practice on Friday, per Jamison Hensley. This comes after Ingram sat out Thursday’s practice after getting a limited practice in on Wednesday. He’ll likely be listed a questionable for the Sunday night matchup with the Patriots. With J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards available, they may not push Ingram and if he does play, he might not get the lead role.
Thursday update: Ingram did not participate in practice on Thursday, per Zack Cox, which suggests a setback in his recovery after a limited Wednesday practice. John Harbaugh will meet with the media on Friday, so we’ll see where things stand at that point.
Wednesday 1:25 p.m. update: Ingram was spotted coming out at the start of practice. He was officially listed as limited on the Wednesday practice participation report.
Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram has missed the last two games with a high ankle sprain, but appears to be getting closer to a return. Coach John Harbaugh says that Ingram is progressing and could be an option for Week 10 against the Patriots, per the Baltimore Sun’s Jonas Shaffer.
The Ravens have three starting capable running backs on the team and all three see work when healthy. Ingram has been the lead back, but that’s mostly in name, as his workload has been small compared to most lead backs in the league. On the season, he has 50 rushing attempts for 225 yards and two touchdowns and three receptions for 25 yards.
Rookie J.K. Dobbins has shown the most fantasy upside, as he has averaged 5.7 yards per carry and has 14 receptions on 18 targets, while Gus Edwards and Ingram are barely used in the receiving game. But until a single back can take over as a true lead back, these three will be tough plays in fantasy.
