Ravens Sign Melvin Gordon III To Practice Squad

Friday, January 19, 6:58 PM

The Baltimore Ravens re-signed running back Melvin Gordon III to their practice squad on Friday and also elevated wide receiver Dan Chisena and linebacker Josh Ross from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster for Saturday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Houston Texans. The Ravens waived Gordon earlier this week to make room for Dalvin Cook on the active, but he's now back in Baltimore as extra RB depth. Cook will serve as the No. 3 back behind Gus Edwards and Justice Hill this weekend, while Gordon will most likely be a healthy scratch. Chisena, 26, was cut from the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad just under two weeks ago and now will give Baltimore extra receiver depth for the Divisional Round.

Pierre Strong Jr. News

Pierre Strong Jr. Inactive On Saturday

Saturday, January 13, 4:41 PM

Cleveland Browns running back Pierre Strong Jr. (back) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's Wild-Card game against the Houston Texans. Strong was considered questionable heading into this game due to a back issue. The Browns have decided to take the cautious approach and hold him out of this game. His absence won't have a huge impact on the running game for Cleveland. The expectation is that Jerome Ford and Kareem Hunt will see basically all the carries in the backfield.
