Let go by Miami

Turner was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old appeared in eight games for the Dolphins in last season and primarily played special teams. Turner played in four games for the Ravens in 2018 and is again looking for a new team.

Plays exclusively on special teams

Turner did not record an offensive snap during Week 17's win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Turner's only offensive snaps with Miami came during Week 16's overtime win over the Bengals, during which he carried the rock four times for six yards. Across eight games in 2019, he handled 136 snaps on special teams. The 24-year-old is under contract for 2020, so he should be afforded the opportunity to compete for a roster spot in the offseason.

Rejoins Ravens on practice squad

Turner was signed to the Ravens' practice squad Sunday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: Turner had an up-and-down preseason, showing occasional flashes of promise but not enough consistency to move up a crowded depth chart. Baltimore enters the season with Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill on its 53-man roster.

Released by Ravens

Turner was waived by the Ravens on Saturday, Aaron Kasinitz of reports.

Analysis: Turner was hoping to scrape his way onto Baltimore's 53-man roster as a big-play threat, but was unable to crack the Ravens' crowded rotation that includes Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards, Kenneth Dixon and Justice Hill.

Mediocre in Philly

Turner rushed six times for 24 yards and caught his lone target for a loss of five yards in Thursday's 26-15 preseason win over Philadelphia.

Analysis: Quarterback Trace McSorley was the only other Raven with more than one carry in a game that was canceled early in the fourth quarter due to lightning, but Turner didn't do much with his opportunity to stand out from the team's other roster bubble running backs. Turner will have one more chance to make a strong impression against the Redskins in Week 4 of preseason.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
