The Baltimore Ravens have been ravaged by injuries in recent years to key players on offense including Lamar Jackson and star wide receiver Rashod Bateman. And unfortunately, it seems like their injury luck has carried over to the 2023 season.

Baltimore took on the Houston Texans in their season opener, where they started things off on the right foot in the first quarter as the Ravens would take control of the game early with a four-yard rushing touchdown from star running back JK Dobbins.

This would unfortunately be where the good news would end for Dobbins, as he would go down with an injury early in the third quarter that certainly looked like a bad one.

Dobbins would need help from the Ravens training staff to walk back to the locker room.


The initial report on his injury is devastating for Dobbins and the Ravens. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Ravens fear that Dobbins has suffered a torn Achilles on this play.

There will still be an MRI to confirm this news, but fans are undoubtedly upset about this very unfortunate news on Dobbins.

If Dobbins does indeed have a torn Achilles, you have to feel for him considering his rough injury history. He missed the entirety of the 2021 season due to a torn ACL, and missed a large portion of the 2022 season with a hamstring injury.

Hopefully Dobbins gets a better diagnosis after an MRI, but it could be a brutal blow to the Ravens offense. On the bright side for Ravens fans, they did come away with a 25-9 victory over the Texans to start their season 1-0.
