5:00 P.M. EST Update: John Harbaugh confirmed Dobbins' injury as a torn Achilles, rulling the player out for the remainder of the 2023 season.
Baltimore Ravens' running back J.K. Dobbins is facing concerns of a torn Achilles injury following their game against the Houston Texans, as sources informed Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero from NFL Network.
The Ravens were already grappling with injuries, including one affecting starting Tight end Mark Andrews, and their troubles deepened within moments of the season's kickoff, particularly affecting their ground game.
Ian Rapoport first reported that Dobbins is under examination for having supposedly sustained a torn Achilles injury, ultimately leading to his departure during the team's Week 1 clash against the Houston Texans on Sunday. "He'll have an MRI to confirm," Rapoport said.
Initially, the Ravens had Dobbins listed as questionable for a potential return, citing an ankle injury. However, this status has now been officially altered to "out."
Dobbins had managed eight carries, amassing 22 yards and a touchdown before exiting the game. Shortly after his departure, the announcement regarding his feared Achilles injury came to light sounding all of the Ravens Alarms.
We will update this story if more information becomes available and/or an official confirmation of the injury is made by the Ravens organization.
