Running back J.K. Dobbins: Torn ACL
Baltimore’s second-year running back suffered a season-ending torn ACL during the preseason finale against the Washington Football Team on Aug. 29. During the Ravens’ first drive of the game, Dobbins caught a screen pass from quarterback Lamar Jackson before being hit by a pair of Washington defenders, which caused his knee to bend awkwardly. After rushing for 805 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie, Dobbins was expected to be one of the best running backs in the NFL this season.

Running back Gus Edwards: Torn ACL
The Ravens fear Edwards suffered a season-ending torn ACL during practice before the season opener, according to ESPN. Edwards, who signed a two-year contract extension in June, was expected to take over as the Ravens’ lead running back after Dobbins went down. After rushing for more than 700 yards in each of his first three seasons, he’s likely out for the year.

Cornerback Marcus Peters: Torn ACL
Along with Edwards, Peters reportedly tore his ACL during practice before the season opener, which will cause him to miss the entire season. Peters, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, has had a strong training camp and was expected to start against the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday night.

Running back Justice Hill: Torn Achilles tendon
NFL Network reported on Monday that Hill, a third-year pro out of Oklahoma State, tore his Achilles tendon, which will likely sideline him for the rest of the season. Hill, a fourth-round pick in 2019, didn’t practice Monday, and his injury came less than a week after Dobbins got hurt.

Cornerback Jimmy Smith: Ankle sprain
Smith returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since spraining his ankle during training camp Aug. 6. The 11-year veteran had to be carted off the field after injuring his ankle during 11-on-11 drills. Smith participated in position drills, which is a good sign as the team inches closer to the season opener.

Defensive end Derek Wolfe: Back/hip injury
Wolfe’s availability for Monday’s season opener might be in jeopardy as he has been sidelined from practice for over two weeks because of a back/hip injury. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that it was a “lingering-type” injury and he hopes Wolfe can be back soon. Wolfe suffered the injury during the Ravens’ joint practice with the Carolina Panthers in August, laying on his back for a few minutes while an athletic trainer tended to him before walking off under his own power.

Tight end Nick Boyle: Knee injury
Boyle, a crucial part of the Ravens' rushing attack, has missed two straight practices. Harbaugh said Aug. 30 that he doesn’t expect Boyle to play against the Raiders but that the veteran tight end should be ready early in the season. Boyle, who signed a two-year extension in January, has missed the entire preseason since suffering a season-ending knee injury against the New England Patriots last November.
