The Baltimore Ravens (2-0) are entering Week 3 without 10 of their starters available for Sunday's matchup against the Indianapolis Colts (1-1) at M&T Bank Stadium.

One of the players falling down to injury coming off Week 2 is running back Justice Hill. Following his injury and even after the acquisition of free agent and former Ravens rusher Kenyan Drake, the Ravens are seemingly on the verge of making a transaction involving another running back on their roster.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Baltimore is activating running back Melvin Gordon from the Practice Squad to make him available for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Hill finished Week 2 carrying the ball 11 times in which he rushed the rock for 41 yards total. However, he failed to score even once after hitting paydirt twice in Week 1 against the Texans in a rather fluky, unsustainable performance.

The running back popped up in the injury report on Wednesday and after missing practices, he was ultimately ruled out for Sunday by the Ravens on Friday.

We all thought the Ravens decided to bring Kenyan Drake back to the team by signing the free agent and former 2022 Raven to their practice squad ahead of Week 3.

However, having activated Gordon is going to make it tough for Drake to make it to the field tomorrow as the NFL only allows two activations from the PS per week and Harbaugh already confirmed that the team is bringing Jeremiah Moon to the first-team squad to face the Colts amid Odafe Oweh's own injury.

The only viable path for Drake to log playing time in Week 3 is if the Ravens decide to carry only two quarterbacks instead of three, which has not been the case in the first two games of the season.
