Mohamed Ibrahim Carted Off Sunday, Won't Return

Sunday, October 22, 3:25 PM

Detroit Lions running back Mohamed Ibrahim (hip) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. The rookie was carted off the field after suffering a scary lower-body injury in the second half. It's a tough development for the 25-year-old Baltimore native, made worse by the fact that he was injured on his first career touch in his NFL debut. Jahmyr Gibbs and Craig Reynolds will continue to lead the Detroit backfield.

Chris Rodriguez Jr. Likely To Serve As No. 3 RB

Saturday, May 25, 11:22 AM

Washington Commanders running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. is likely headed for the No. 3 role in the backfield behind Brian Robinson Jr. and Austin Ekeler after the team passed on selecting another RB in this year's NFL draft. Rodriguez is the clear early-down backup to Robinson, whether that means five to 10 touches from scrimmage per game or a lower figure. However, he could have a bigger role on special teams if the Commanders view him as part of what looks like a trend of teams seeking bigger-bodied kick returners given the new league rules on kickoffs. The 23-year-old doesn't have a path to any kind of real fantasy value in 2024 unless one of Robinson or Ekeler go down with an injury. In his rookie campaign in 2023, Rodriguez had 51 carries for 247 yards and two touchdowns while catching two passes for 12 yards in 13 regular-season games.
