Ravens running back Justin Forsett expects to be 100 percent soon

Justin Forsett put his right arm to the test by shoveling snow for hours.

While his right arm is not yet 100 percent, Ravens running back Justin Forsett has a pretty good idea that it will be soon.

That’s because it held up to a big test over this past weekend.

Like many other Baltimoreans, Forsett spent hours over the past couple of days trying to dig out after the massive snowstorm hit Maryland. As taxing it was, he came through just fine physically.

“Everything is going well,” Forsett said in a phone interview with The Sun on Wednesday afternoon. “I should be 100 percent in a couple of weeks.”

The 30-year-old is recovering from a broken right arm, sustained when he was thrown to the M&T Bank Stadium turf by St. Louis Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald in the Ravens’ victory on Nov. 22. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco also suffered a season-ending knee injury in that game.

Forsett, who had 641 rushing yards and two touchdowns in 10 games in 2015, had surgery to repair his arm the next day. He’s been rehabbing hard since and he said Monday that he expects to be ready for the start of offseason workouts.

“That’s the plan,” he said.

Forsett will have X-rays taken in the next couple of weeks to make sure the injury is fully healing.   

As for the snow, the Florida native, who played his college ball at Cal in Berkeley, Calif., has already had his fill.

“I sent a message to some of my family members down South that have never seen snow before, to not believe the hype,” Forsett said. “It was brutal.”
