Dobbins, who was placed on injured reserve Oct. 22 after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery, has been designated to return from IR. He can be activated to the Ravens’ 53-man roster at any point over the next 21 days. Dobbins, who suffered a significant knee injury last preseason, has 35 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown this year. It will be a crowded backfield upon his return. Edwards led the way last week when he returned from his injury, and when Edwards was out, it was Drake.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford remains in the concussion protocol and though he is progressing through it, head coach Sean McVay said, via multiple reporters, that it’s “safe to say” Stafford won’t play in Week 13.
Stafford was also listed with a neck injury on last week’s injury report, as he didn’t play in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. The quarterback missed the Week 10 loss to the Cardinals while in the concussion protocol. He was cleared for the Week 11 loss to New Orleans, but left the game with a neck injury and was subsequently placed back into the concussion protocol. As the story points out, there’s a chance the Rams could shut Stafford down for the season given the team's current record.
Good news for Chase and his owners. The hope was he'd return in Week 12, but now is hopefully on track for Week 13. Keep in mind Chase was limited last week as well. It could be a shootout against the Chiefs so if Chase plays, start him with confidence.
