De'Lance Turner: Could provide big-play threat

Coach John Harbaugh mentioned Turner when discussing the Ravens' desire to add a big-play threat in the backfield, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. "I like the idea of adding a shifty, third-down, home-run-type hitter guy," Harbaugh said. "We might have him already. We had a pretty good rookie last year (Turner) who got hurt early in the season."

Analysis: Turner caught on with Baltimore as an undrafted rookie in 2018, spending one week on the practice squad and four on the active roster before a hamstring injury allowed the team to stash him on injured reserve. His 214-pound frame and 4.53 40 time don't exactly support Harbaugh's assessment, but Turner did have a 65-yard touchdown run during the final week of the preseason. He'll enter the offseason program fourth or fifth on the depth chart at running back, with Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon occupying the top three spots.

De'Lance Turner: Lands on IR

The Ravens placed Turner on injured reserve Saturday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: Turner has been dealing with an injured hamstring throughout the week, and it turns out the issue is serious enough to keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season. He only logged one carry for four yards and two receptions for 17 yards through four games, as he primarily provided depth at running back behind Alex Collins and Javorius Allen.

De'Lance Turner: Will miss Week 6

Turner (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Turner was unable to practice late in the week after logging a limited session Wednesday, so he won't suit up Week 6 after totaling eight offensive snaps over the Ravens' past two contests. The one-two punch of Alex Collins and Javorius Allen will lead Baltimore's backfield again Sunday.

De'Lance Turner: Sits out practice Thursday

Turner (hamstring) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: Turner was limited Wednesday, so his condition may have gotten worse. If he can't get healthy for Week 6's game against the Titans, the team could promote Gus Edwards to add depth. Turner has just one rush over four games, however, so his absence wouldn't affect the fantasy realm.

De'Lance Turner: Limited participant at Wednesday's practice

Turner was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury.

Analysis: It's unclear as to where exactly Turner sustained the injury, but the fact of the matter is that his availability for Sunday's game appears to be in slight jeopardy. Should Turner convert to a full participant at any point during this week's practice, it's expected that he would play in Sunday's contest.

De'Lance Turner: Sees first career carry

Turner had one carry for four yards and added a 10-yard reception Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie saw the first offensive touches of his career Sunday. Turner saw his lone carry in the third quarter when the game still hung in the balance and followed it up with a reception midway through the fourth quarter. Still, he's an emergency third option out of the backfield behind Alex Collins and Javorius Allen. Barring injury to either of those two, Turner figures to have a very minor role in the Baltimore offense moving forward.

De'Lance Turner: Promoted to active roster

Turner was promoted to Baltimore's 53-man roster Wednesday, freelance NFL writer Jeff Zrebiec reports.

Analysis: Turner's promotion to the active roster comes immediately following the placement of Kenneth Dixon (knee) on injured reserve. An undrafted free agent out of Alcorn State, Turner will look to capitalize on whatever touches he receives behind Alex Collins and Javorius Allen.
