CINCINNATI — The Ravens’ Gus Edwards was ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a possible head injury, leaving the team without its top two running backs.

Edwards had four carries for 16 yards in the first quarter before leaving the game for further evaluation. He was declared out in the third quarter. Starting running back J.K. Dobbins, who’s dealt with knee injuries over the past year and a half, was held out of the team’s regular-season finale as the Ravens prepared for next weekend’s playoff game.

With Edwards sidelined, the Ravens turned to reserves Justice Hill and Kenyan Drake. The team entered halftime with 19 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown.

Edwards missed the first six games of the season while recovering from a torn ACL he suffered on the eve of the 2021 opener. A hamstring injury suffered in Week 8 preseason sidelined him for another three weeks. He entered Sunday’s game with 83 carries for 417 yards (5.0 per carry) and three touchdowns.
