The Baltimore Ravens' health woes at running back continued on Thursday, as Gus Edwards departed in the fourth quarter with a hamstring problem. Edwards' recent injury, plus the issue being in a troublesome area, immediately sent fans into a panic.

Now the Ravens have received a big update on Edwards' status after Week 8.

Edwards' injury is considered "minor", according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The insider adds the RB may only sit "a week or so" if he's forced to miss any time.

This is great news for Baltimore. An absence isn't expected to be long prolonged, and It sounds like a legit possibility that Edwards could return in Week 9. The team also having an extra couple of days to rest after playing on Thursday night also bodes well for the running back's chances of suiting up next Monday.

Edwards has been nothing but productive since making his 2022 debut in Week 7. He's rushed for at least 65 yards in both contests and already scored two touchdowns, showing little signs of rust after coming back from a torn ACL.

Edwards' health will be a major story to watch ahead of Baltimore's matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Opening NFL odds on FanDuel project the Ravens as 3.5-point favorites in that primetime clash.
