Justin Forsett mixed in with the second-team offense during Baltimore's preseason opener Thursday night.
He was the change-of-pace back for Bernard Pierce with the twos. Forsett is a good bet for a roster spot while Ray Rice is suspended, but hurt his longer-term roster chances by losing a fumble against the 49ers. The 28-year-old scatback finished with 29 yards on seven carries, and a reception for 13 yards. Aug 7 - 10:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun expects Justin Forsett to "provide value as a third-down back" during Ray Rice's suspension.

With Rice expected to get a multi-game ban to open the season, Bernard Pierce is the favorite for early-down and short-yardage work with veteran Forsett mixing in on passing downs and handling blitz pick-up duties. Forsett knows new OC Gary Kubiak's offense from their time together in Houston. Rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro will also be in the mix for backfield work. It's a camp battle to watch.

Justin Forsett is running ahead of Lorenzo Taliaferro at OTAs.

Throughout offseason work, the pecking order for Ravens running backs has gone Ray Rice, Forsett, Taliaferro. Bernard Pierce (shoulder surgery) has been sidelined. Forsett could very well open the season as Pierce's passing-down complement once Rice's suspension is handed down.

Justin Forsett (foot) says he's 100 percent healthy.

Forsett broke his foot in Week 12 and ended the season on injured reserve. He inked a one-year deal with the Ravens last week and will compete for No. 3 duties. Forsett has reliable hands and can hold up in pass protection.
Apr 8 - 10:11 AM

Ravens signed RB Justin Forsett, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year contract.

Forsett, 28, carried the ball just six times for 31 yards in nine games for Jacksonville last season and battled a foot injury for much of the year. He broke a bone in the foot in Week 12 but appears to be healthy now. Forsett, who owns a career 4.9 YPC average, will battle Cierre Wood and others for No. 3 duties.
Apr 4 - 12:09 PM

Jaguars released RB Justin Forsett.

Forsett, 28, inked a two-year deal last offseason but carried the ball just six times for 31 yards while battling injuries. Forsett landed on I.R. in December with a broken foot and is questionable for OTAs. The move saves the Jaguars $1.15 million. Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson now sit atop the depth chart.
Mar 11 - 8:47 AM

The Jaguars are expected to release RB Justin Forsett.

Forsett's first year in Jacksonville resulted in six carries for 31 yards and nine appearances. Battling a foot injury and due $1.1 million in 2014, there's no way he'll be back even though Maurice Jones-Drew is hitting the open market. For now, we'd guess the Jags roll with Jordan Todman and a draft pick in their backfield going forward.

Jaguars placed RB Justin Forsett (foot) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Forsett broke a bone in his foot during Week 12, losing out on a chance for real action as Maurice Jones-Drew battles a hamstring pull. Forsett's season ends with just six carries for 31 yards and 15 catches for 82 yards in nine games. Due $1.1 million in 2014 base salary, the Jags should be able to find better value for their money by drafting a running back.

Jaguars RB Justin Forsett has been diagnosed with a broken foot, and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

He'll likely be placed on injured reserve. The news leaves Jordan Todman as Maurice Jones-Drew's primary breather back, and cracks the door back open for Denard Robinson to receive carries. MJD is the only Jags back worth owning.

Jaguars RB Justin Forsett will have an MRI on his foot Monday.

Forsett went down while catching a nine-yard pass from Chad Henne. "I don't know what it is yet," he said. "I still have full range of motion and everything but it still hurts." Jordan Todman -- not Denard Robinson -- stepped into the backup role.
Mon, Nov 25, 2013 09:51:00 AM

Jaguars RB Justin Forsett caught one pass for nine yards in Jacksonville's Week 12 win over the Texans before departing with a foot injury.

Forsett did not return. No. 3 on the depth chart, Forsett's Week 13 status is uncertain. He has no fantasy value.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 06:23:00 PM

Justin Forsett didn't play a single snap in the Week 10 win over the Titans.

Denard Robinson is the No. 2 back and Jordan Todman is the kickoff returner/third-down option. It's left Forsett without a role. "It's tough man, to be honest," he said. Forsett is under contract for $1.1 million in 2014.
Wed, Nov 13, 2013 09:05:00 AM

Justin Forsett caught three passes for six yards in the Jaguars' Week 8 loss to the 49ers.

No. 2 runner Forsett did not receive a rushing attempt, while Denard Robinson handled four, gaining 15 yards. Forsett is a situational passing-down back behind Maurice Jones-Drew. He's a weak handcuff in standard leagues.
Sun, Oct 27, 2013 04:45:00 PM

Justin Forsett rushed twice for 19 yards and caught one pass for ten yards in the Jaguars' Week 7 loss to San Diego.

Jordan Todman returned kickoffs and touched the ball once on offense. If you're looking to stash a Jaguars back on the off chance they trade Maurice Jones-Drew or he suffers an injury, Forsett is the guy to roster.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 04:42:00 PM

Jaguars RB Justin Forsett rushed once for no yards and caught three passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to Denver.

Forsett appears to have overtaken Jordan Todman as Jacksonville's No. 2 back, as Todman finished the game without a touch. Forsett played ahead of Maurice Jones-Drew in garbage time. He's on the deep-league handcuff radar.
