Woodhead left the Week 1 game with a hamstring injury and was placed on injured reserve.

Week 3: at Jacksonville Jaguars

All RB vs JAX

FBG says: Bad matchup. It's unclear whether Terrance West will be able to suit up Sunday, let alone play meaningful snaps (he saw just 16 in Week 2), due to a soft-tissue injury. West, who has thoroughly underwhelmed throughout his 3+ seasons, has chugged to just 226 yards on 57 carries over his last 6 games. And whenever he's on the field next, he'll be running without all-world guard Marshal Yanda, who's lost for the year to a fractured ankle. There's a strong chance West's premier role in the run game will be permanently usurped by Buck Allen, a similarly ineffective runner but dynamic pass-catcher. Doing most of his work in the flats and outside the tackles, Allen shouldn't feel Yanda's loss quite as harshly as interior runner West. Still, Allen is stepping into a precarious spot, and he can't be counted on for much rushing dynamism off the bat. Ex-Seahawk Alex Collins will spell Allen and could eventually force a timeshare. He looked great in Week 2 garbage time and flashed dual-threat ability as a 2016 rookie in Seattle. The Jaguars run defense is a definite strength, despite what Derrick Henry did to them down the Week 2 stretch. Most of Henry's damage was done in what was essentially garbage time, and while that doesn't let the Jacksonville defense off the hook, we need to keep perspective. They'd shut down Henry and DeMarco Murray in the first half, allowing them just 27 yards on 9 rushes. And aside from a handful of slip-ups, they'd been borderline dominant for much of 2016. It's safe to expect the defense to gas and struggle to an extent in poor game scripts and against better run games. They won't see the latter this week - Baltimore's already plodding run game lost All-Pro guard Marshal Yanda for the year. Replacement Tony Bergstrom is a big downgrade and a spot for the Jaguars' rapidly ascending front seven to target.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 1 vs CIN (1 / 4 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)

Danny Woodhead looked like he would be a staple in the Ravens offense until leaving the game with injury during the Ravens first possession. Woodhead made his first catch for a gain of 12 running a quick out route and out flanking his defender. Woodhead caught his second target lined up in the slot and matched up against a linebacker for a 13 yard gain. Woodhead picked up 8 more yards running another out route and converting a 3rd down in the red zone. Woodhead fell and clutched his hamstring running another route in the flat a few plays later. Woodhead was carted off the field and did not return.


Latest News

Ravens | Danny Woodhead to IR, out eight weeks (Thu Sep 14, 12:17 PM) - Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is expected to return in eight weeks and was placed on the Reserve/Injured list designated to return Thursday, Sept. 14. He will not require surgery. RB Jeremy Langford was signed to the active roster.

Our View: Javorius Allen will get the passing down work, and probably about half the carries. Terrance West will get more of the work and is likely to be able to find more success against the Cleveland Browns. Allen is no better than a flex play this week, though that's more than he was worth last week.

Ravens | Danny Woodhead injury update (Tue Sep 12, 09:19 PM) - Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks with his hamstring injury, instead of the initial four-to-six-week timeline he was previously given.

Ravens | Danny Woodhead out at least a month (Tue Sep 12, 03:56 PM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) will be sidelined four to six weeks with his hamstring injury, according to sources. He is expected to play again this season.

Our View: Woodhead should be back this year but in the meantime the team will turn to Buck Allen. Terrance West is the starter for the team and Allen will play the Woodhead role. In PPR leagues, Allen will have flex appeal as the pass-catching back for the Ravens.

Ravens | Danny Woodhead's status still unknown (Mon Sep 11, 04:38 PM) - Baltimore Ravens RB Danny Woodhead's (hamstring) timetable won't be known until Tuesday, Sept. 12, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Woodhead is believed to have suffered a serious hamstring injury.

Our View: The Ravens will move forward with a backfield that consists of Terrance West as the starter. Behind him, Buck Allen should play the Woodhead role. They do have Alex Collins and Jeremy Langford on the practice squad now and might bring one of them up.
