Gus Edwards off the injury report ahead of Week 4 vs. Browns

We break down the news that Gus Edwards is practicing to start the week. What it means for Week 4.

Update, Sept. 29 — Edwards is off the injury report and seemingly good to go for Sunday’s game against the Browns. Justice Hill is questionable for the matchup, so Edwards could be in line for another big workload.

Update, Sept. 28 — Edwards was a full participant again on Thursday. This is a good sign that he will head into the weekend without an injury designation, but we will find out officially on Friday afternoon.

Update, Sept. 27 — Edwards was able to practice in full on Wednesday. All signs point to him being out of or close to being out of concussion protocol. He would likely need a setback to not play this Sunday against the Browns.

The Baltimore Raens are coming off a bad loss to the Indianapolis Colts to go 1-2 on the early season. In that game they lost running back Gus Edwards in the fourth quarter to a concussion. The good news is that he was able to practice on Wednesday, meaning that he is either progressing quickly through the concussion protocol or that he was cleared.

Fantasy football implications for Week 4

The Ravens are, as usual, seeing plenty of injuries to their running backs this season. J.K. Dobbins is already out for the season with a torn Achilles, while Justice Hill is dealing with a toe injury and was not practicing on Wednesday.

When Edwards went out last week, Melvin Gordon took over the bulk of the work, while Kenyan Drake, who lost a fumbler early in the game, was behind him. If Edwards can go this week and Hill is out again, he would be the starter in a tough matchup with the Browns.
