Negative: Gus Edwards, who is not a leading running back... and got concussed
As much as we all love Edward's efficiency, he just doesn't have it. Let's accept it once and for all and move on, the quicker the better, and if that means trading for a stud rusher, so be it.
First of all, Edwards left Sunday's game earlier than expected and the team announced midway through the matchup that the running back was indeed being evaluated for a concussion.
We will have to wait to know more, but things aren't looking good for Edwards nor the Ravens backfield as a whole.
Did Edwards do his thing? Of course. Only, you know, Edwards thing is only helpful in very particular ways, not to actually win you games. He rushed for 51 yards on 11 carries. He averaged a ridiculously good 4.63 yards per carry. He failed to score a touchdown.
Throughout his career, Edwards has one of the greatest averages in yards per carry you can imagine. In situational plays, he's crazy great to have around. In 60-minute matchups, he's just not going to cut it as the no. 1 rusher.
Justice Hill should return soon, and that should be music to the Ravens' ears unless they can trade for a proper leading running back.
