Lorenzo Taliaferro (MCL sprain) to miss a few weeks

BaltimoreRavens.com - [Full Article]

Add the Ravens backfield to the positions hit by the injury bug.

Second-year running back Lorenzo Taliaferro suffered an MCL sprain in Saturday’s preseason game to the Eagles, which will keep him out a few weeks, Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday.

“I don’t have the degree on it yet, but it’s going to be a few weeks for Lorenzo,” Harbaugh said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Taliaferro was listed as the Ravens No. 2 running back behind Justin Forsett, but now rookie fourth-round pick Buck Allen will likely see an increased workload for the rest of the preseason and potentially early in the regular season. Behind Allen is second-year back Fitzgerald Toussaint and undrafted rookie Terrence Magee.
