Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins’ long road back from a significant knee injury hit another bump.
Dobbins, the Ravens’ No. 1 back, is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee next week that will sideline him four to six weeks, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Friday. The running back did not practice all week after not playing Sunday in the second half of the 24-20 loss to the New York Giants.
The Ravens (3-3) will rely on Kenyan Drake, who became the first Baltimore running back to produce 100 rushing yards this season, and a growing backfield for at least the next month. Justice Hill, who leads Ravens running backs with 6.6 yards per carry, is back for the game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns after missing the past two matchups with a hamstring injury.
