The Baltimore Ravens have placed running back De’Lance Turner on injured reserve and have signed running back Gus Edwards from the practice squad.
Turner suffered a hamstring injury and were short at running back so the Ravens needed to make a move. Turner was signed up after Kenneth Dixon was placed on injured reserve. Turner saw limited playing time as the third running back.
Edwards played well in the preseason.
Here is the Ravens release.
