Justin Forsett (broken arm) said he "should be 100 percent in a couple of weeks."
Forsett broke both bones in his forearm when Rams DT Aaron Donald body-slammed him Week 11. He should be a full participant in the offseason program. The 30-year-old back is expected to stick on the roster despite his $3.7 million cap hit, but Buck Allen should steal a significant chunk of Forsett's role. Jan 28 - 11:49 AM

Justin Forsett (arm) is ahead of schedule in his recovery.

Forsett expects to be fully healthy in 4-5 weeks. He’ll miss the rest of the year, but should have a normal offseason. 30-year-old Forsett is scheduled to count $3.7M against the 2016 cap.

Ravens placed RB Justin Forsett on injured reserve with a broken arm, ending his season.

It's a procedural move after Forsett had his arm crushed when Rams DT Aaron Donald body-slammed him in the Ravens' Week 11 win. Buck Allen will get the first crack at replacing Forsett as the lead back, while Terrance West and Raheem Mostert fill out the rest of the depth chart. Forsett turned 30 last month and has two years left on his contract with salaries of $3 million.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Justin Forsett (arm) is "a big part of what we’re doing going forward."

That seems to confirm that Forsett will be back for next season. Moving on from Forsett would clear salary space but it doesn't sound like the Ravens are considering that as a possibility. He might have to settle for a backup role next year if Buck Allen plays well over the team's final six games. Forsett turned 30 in October.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports Justin Forsett broke both bones in his forearm Week 11 against the Rams and is done for the season.

Forsett was slammed to the ground by Aaron Donald in the first quarter. Buck Allen rushed 22 times for 67 yards and caught five passes for 48 yards in relief of Forsett and should operate as the lead back the rest of the season. Terrance West, who was recently acquired after being waived by the Titans, should also get some work. Forsett is owed a $3 million base salary and will count $3.7 million against the 2016 cap. He should be brought back at that relatively low price, but he will not be guaranteed a featured role.

Justin Forsett exited Week 11 against the Rams with a broken right arm and will not return.

Forsett was slammed to the turf for a five-yard loss by Rams' stud DT Aaron Donald midway through the first quarter. Trainers immediately ran on the field and put an air cast on Forsett's arm. With Terrance West inactive, Buck Allen and Raheem Mostert are left at running back. Forsett rushed four times for 26 yards before leaving and was well on his way to a successful afternoon.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 01:32:00 PM

Justin Forsett rushed 14 times for 53 yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for 11 yards in the Ravens' Week 10 loss to the Jaguars.

This was a Joe Flacco game, as OC Marc Trestman dialed up pass play after pass play, even when nursing small leads late in the second half. Forsett didn't make any eye-catching plays, and that's been the case much of the season as one of many running backs who have underachieved in fantasy. Things won't get any easier next week at home against a normally-strong Rams defense.

Justin Forsett managed 69 yards on 17 carries and caught his lone target for five yards in the Ravens' Week 8 win over the Chargers.

The Ravens were surprisingly unable to generate much running room for Forsett, who was consistently stopped in his tracks and managed a long run of 11 yards. Through eight games, Forsett is on pace for 1,124 rushing yards, but only four all-purpose touchdowns and 54 receptions. He'll emerge from Baltimore's Week 9 bye as a high-end RB2 in Week 10 against Jacksonville.

Justin Forsett rushed 12 times for 36 yards and one touchdown and caught 3-of-4 targets for eight yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Cardinals on Monday night.

Arizona came in allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points to running backs, and Forsett couldn't get anything going. He at least saved owners with a first-half, 14-yard touchdown scamper right up the middle. Forsett didn't do anything after halftime, managing just three total yards. Look for a bounce-back game from Forsett against the Chargers' 31st-ranked run defense in Week 8.

Updating an earlier item, Justin Forsett is absent from the Ravens' Week 7 injury report.

He's over his ankle injury. Averaging 25 touches over his past three games, Forsett will be an RB1 for Monday's game against the Cardinals.
Thu, Oct 22, 2015 06:15:00 PM

Justin Forsett (ankle) returned to Ravens practice on Thursday.

Forsett will be fine for Monday's game against the Cardinals. Amongst the league leaders in yards from scrimmage, Forsett is an RB1.
Thu, Oct 22, 2015 01:52:00 PM

Justin Forsett (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Forsett is unlikely to get in much practice this week, but didn't suffer any setbacks in Sunday's loss. His status will be updated Thursday.
Wed, Oct 21, 2015 05:39:00 PM

Justin Forsett rushed 17 times for 62 yards and caught 7-of-8 targets for 39 yards in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to San Francisco.

Forsett entered this game listed as questionable with an ankle injury, but he showed no signs of being hobbled based on game-watching analysis, despite only average to above-average stats. Buck Allen managed five touches off the bench, compared to Forsett's 24. Forsett should be all systems go for Week 7 against the Cardinals, where he'll be a high-end RB2 fantasy start.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 07:53:00 PM

Justin Forsett is active for Week 6 at San Francisco.

As is Steve Smith Sr. Forsett should operate as Baltimore's lead back against the 49ers, while Buck Allen mixes in for change-of-pace and breather carries.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 02:49:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Justin Forsett (ankle) is "likely to play" Sunday at San Francisco.

ESPN's Adam Schefter has also reported Forsett is likelier than not to play. Fantasy owners of Forsett should have picked up Buck Allen this past week and have him available in case Forsett is a surprise last-minute inactive.
