Original Story:

Bad news from the Baltimore Ravens-Houston Texans season opener, as running back J.K. Dobbins apparently suffered a severe injury.

The injury is feared to be a torn Achilles, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

This injury comes as a bitter blow for Dobbins, who had been a key player for the Ravens.

During the preseason, there were reports of Dobbins considering holding out into the season due to contract disputes, but he ultimately decided to report to camp. Now, with this unfortunate injury, his season is at risk of coming to an abrupt end, which would also impact his financial situation.

Dobbins, a second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, had gained 22 yards on 8 carries and 15 yards on 2 catches before being forced to leave the game.

Over his career, he ran for 1,325 rushing yards, averaging an impressive 5.9 yards per carry, and scoring 11 touchdowns.

Unfortunately, this setback is reminiscent of the 2021 season when he missed the entire year due to injury.

The Ravens and their fans will undoubtedly be hoping to receive a positive update.
