Summary from the Final Week of Camp
Despite missing the early part of camp while recovering from COVID-19, Lamar Jackson has looked excellent in practices in recent weeks. He got his first taste of preseason action Saturday night. He played just one series, but it was an 11-play drive. Jackson was happy to get some game action, “Just to get my feet wet for the regular season, I've got to feel that contact, that real contact. (Not) guys practicing, not hitting me. It was great to get my feet wet. Felt pretty good.” Another key starter, offensive lineman Ronnie Stanley, also got his first preseason action. Jackson was excited to have Stanley back. Tyler Huntley has solidified his role as the backup thanks to his play and an injury to Trace McSorley.
The biggest story of the week is J.K. Dobbins’ season-ending injury. Dobbins suffered a torn ACL in Saturday’s final preseason game and will miss the 2021 season. It’s a potentially devastating blow as Dobbins commanded the No. 1 role and was in line for a heavy workload. Baltimore isn’t likely to turn into a pass-happy offense simply because they lost their bellcow. The team still believes in Gus Edwards, who will step in as the No. 1. Edwards’ skill set is limited, though, having only caught 18 passes in 43 career games. Behind Edwards, Ty'Son Williams had been drawing rave reviews for his aggressive running style while Justice Hill was out with an injury.
