Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that there's a "chance" both Edwards (knee) and backfield mate J.K. Dobbins (knee) begin training camp on the PUP list, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Analysis: Edwards and Dobbins both suffered torn ACLs last offseason and subsequently spent the entire 2021 campaign sidelined. Though the backfield tandem may not be ready for the start of training camp, it appears that there's not yet reason for concern about either Dobbins' or Edwards' recoveries. Harbaugh said "we'll probably play it safe a little bit with those guys and take our time and just bring them along for the season." Assuming neither running back encounters any recovery setbacks, Dobbins would seem to be the favorite to operate as the No. 1 option Week 1 of the 2022 season, while Edwards should be primed for a valuable complementary role.
