Melvin Gordon, Kenyan Drake Elevated From Practice Squad

Baltimore Ravens running backs Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake have been elevated from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of the Week 3 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. Justice Hill (toe) will miss Sunday's contest, leaving Gus Edwards as the only healthy running back on the active roster. The Ravens elevated Gordon last week against the Cincinnati Bengals. Yet, the veteran didn't see the field. Meanwhile, Baltimore added Drake to the practice squad earlier this week. Edwards will be the lead running back and the only viable starting option for fantasy players. However, expect Gordon and Drake to see some work tomorrow against the Colts.

Colts Release Kenyan Drake

The Indianapolis Colts released veteran running back Kenyan Drake on Sunday, according to a source. Drake really must not have impressed the team's coaching staff during training camp and the preseason, as they could use all the running back depth they can get with Jonathan Taylor (ankle) and Zack Moss (arm) both injured. With the 29-year-old now back on the free-agent market, Deon Jackson, Evan Hull and Jake Funk will serve as depth for Indy in the RB room behind Taylor, who could be traded, and Moss. Drake, a former third-rounder in 2016 by the Miami Dolphins, has played for three different teams (Cardinals, Raiders, Ravens) in the last three seasons. In 12 games (five starts) in 2022, he had 109 carries for 482 yards and four TDs with Baltimore.

Kenyan Drake Not A Lock For 53-Man Roster

Indianapolis Colts running back Kenyan Drake is not projected to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer James Boyd. Drake just signed with the Colts a few weeks ago so he had an uphill battle in regards to making the team. Indianapolis' backfield situation remains murky with Jonathan Taylor on the trade block and Zack Moss (wrist) out with an injury. Moss should be back early enough in the season to make an impact but it's anyone's guess if Taylor ends up being traded or placed on the PUP list. Deon Jackson should be the odds-on favorite to be the Colts' starting running back in Week 1 if Drake is cut and Taylor is unavailable. Evan Hull would likely factor into that backfield mix as well. Drake posted 571 total yards with five touchdowns as a member of the Ravens last season and would likely sign with another team if Indy decides to let him go.
