Having flamed out in both Cleveland and Tennessee during his first two years in the NFL, West is showing flashes of what he did in college, where he broke the Football Championship Subdivision record with 41 touchdowns as a senior in leading the Tigers to the national title game.
After losing about 15 pounds, the 5-10, 225-pound running back appears to be in the hunt for more carries – and perhaps a starting role – when the season begins, the story said. This has been a continuous theme since camp opened, as you've probably noticed in the news feed. Kenneth Dixon was supposed to be the surprise back out of this backfield but he just recently returned from injury. It will be interesting to see if West keeps this up what the Ravens do. Right now, there's just too many cooks in the kitchen when you factor in Justin Forsett and Buck Allen.
