Murray has been Baltimore’s lead back, but he was sidelined by an ankle injury in Sunday’s game. That could give Bell a larger role in the offense, especially if Murray can't go in Week 7. His injury isn't considered serious according to reports on Monday. Freeman also scored a touchdown in Week 6 as, strangely, the rookies Williams remains the odd man out of this veteran backfield.
As for Latavius Murray, he appeared to injure his ankle later in the quarter after he was tackled by Chargers linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga on a three-yard run. Murray was examined by trainers before heading to the sideline and later to the locker room.
Head coach John Harbaugh was asked about the status Murray after the game and he indicated that he doesn’t believe the injury is “overly serious,” but that they would wait for official word. It's possible, with the game in hand, the team just gave Murray the rest of the day off as he seems to be on top of the depth chart with Bell and Freeman. We'll likely know more Wednesday.
After spending three weeks on the Ravens' practice squad getting acclimated and working into playing shape, Bell could be called up to the active roster. This is already one of the NFL’s most crowded backfield with Ty’son Williams, Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman.
Murray and Williams should continue to get there chances on first and second down with Bell working in as a third RB if promoted. This move could lead to Freeman being a healthy scratch on game day.
