Rookie running back Raheem Mostert was the only alternative to fellow first-year player Buck Allen after Justin Forsett’s broken right arm last Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. But Mostert isn’t discouraged that he didn’t play an offensive snap as the Ravens deployed him exclusively as a kick returner.
“They feel a certain way about me,” Mostert said. “I’ve just got to be patient; whatever the case may be. I’m not really too worried about getting out there on offense, because I know my main focus right now is special teams.
"Talking to [running backs] coach Thomas [Hammock] and stuff like that, he’s telling me that’s part of the reason why I’m here. I’ve just got to focus on special teams, and then get into the playbook more. But I’m doing good right now.”
Mostert has had four return opportunities this year, averaging 35.3 yards a return with a long of 50 yards. That average would lead the NFL if he had enough returns to qualify. He’s played one offensive snap in four games since the Ravens claimed him off waivers from the Miami Dolphins. He looked pretty in good in preseason with the Eagles before they let him go.
