Two crushing preseason injuries have left the Baltimore Ravens gearing up for Week 1 without their starting and backup running backs (not including Lamar Jackson). Enter Le’Veon Bell.
Not exactly the worst name to scoop up off the streets in the days leading up to the start of the season, Bell is now a Raven following stints with the Jets and Chiefs after his infamous departure from the Steelers in 2018.
Bell averaged 4 yards a carry last season on 63 carries, racking up 254 yards, 2 touchdowns and 13 receptions.
Le’Veon replaces J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill who both went down with season-ending knee and achilles injuries, respectfully.
The Ravens selected Bell over Devonta Freeman following their workouts with the team.
