Ravens Beat: Breaking down MNF touches for RBs

Ty'Son Williams had a strong summer and he’s the only running back on the roster or practice squad who has been with the organization beyond a week. That alone makes him likely to get the bulk of the backfield work in his regular-season debut. Because he can immediately help the Ravens on special teams, Trenton Cannon is in good position to be active as the No. 3 or 4 running back, although a significant offensive role feels unlikely.
