Impending free-agent RB Justin Forsett said the Ravens have expressed interest in re-signing him.
"They expressed that they want me back. I want to be back, so we'll see what happens," Forsett said. After bouncing around the league the first six years of his career, Forsett was finally given an opportunity to lead a backfield in Baltimore this season. He did not disappoint. Forsett racked up 1266 yards and eight touchdowns on 235 carries for the Ravens, earning his first Pro Bowl bid in the process. Jan 24 - 1:44 PM

Justin Forsett rushed 24 times for 129 yards in Baltimore's Divisional Round loss to the Patriots, adding two catches for 17 yards and a touchdown.

Forsett had looked out of gas for the better part of the past month, but came back alive at the exact right time for Baltimore. The 129 yards on the ground were the second most of the season for a back who broke out at the tender age of 29. Elusive with excellent vision in the open field, Forsett will be an interesting case in free agency after leading running backs in yards per carry (5.4), and coming in fifth in rushing yards (1,266). Forsett had previously never rushed for more than 619 yards. Despite the elite campaign, Forsett is more likely to land somewhere in a change-of-pace than bell-cow role.
Jan 10 - 8:29 PM

Justin Forsett had 16 carries for 36 yards in the Ravens' Wild Card win over the Steelers.

He added one catch for seven yards. Forsett averaged 6.8 YPC on his first six carries, but had negative yardage and lost a fumble in the second half. He also had a five-yard touchdown vultured by Bernard Pierce. The Ravens were able to win despite his late-game struggles. Forsett will have a matchup against New England in the Divisional Round.
Jan 4 - 12:00 AM

Justin Forsett rushed 17 times for 119 yards Week 17 against the Browns.

Forsett was bottled up early by the Browns' league-worst rush defense, but he broke off several long runs to kill off the game for the Ravens. After hitting a wall the last two weeks, Forsett looked as quick and nimble as ever against the Browns. The Ravens need Forsett to perform well in the playoffs if they have any hope of escaping the first round.

Justin Forsett continues to insist his ankle is "fine" and "ready to go."

Forsett is trying not to submit to injury as he wraps up an impressive season as the Ravens' feature back. But he sustained a knee tweak a couple weeks ago and keeps spraining an ankle. The latest roll of that ankle cost him the final nine minutes of the Week 16 loss at Houston. Expect Forsett to play in a dream matchup at home against the Browns' league-worst run defense Sunday, but anyone rostering him needs to know he's not at 100 percent. Fitzgerald Toussaint replaced Bernard Pierce as the No. 2 back last week.

Justin Forsett rushed for just 19 yards on 10 carries in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Texans.

Back-to-back horrible games for Forsett after rushing for just 48 yards on 16 carries in Week 15 against the Jaguars. The slip-ups came at the worst time for Forsett owners. He caught four passes for 13 yards but couldn't find any room to operate. Forsett also appeared to re-injure his ankle/knee early in the third quarter. He missed a few snaps before returning to the field. Forsett was a nice surprise in 2014 but ended the season on a low note. He and the Ravens host the Browns in Week 17.

Justin Forsett (ankle, knee) is no longer listed on the injury report.

Forsett has rotated out more often than usual the last two weeks, averaging 14.5 carries during that span vs. 22.0 the previous three weeks. Perhaps knee and ankle issues were to blame. Forsett was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, a strong sign he's nearing 100 percent again ahead of Sunday's game at Houston. "I feel good," he said. "This is actually one of the best Wednesdays that I've had in a while. So, my body is feeling good, maintaining, feeling ready to go."

Justin Forsett blamed a stacked box for his disappointing 16-48-0 line against the Jaguars Sunday.

Forsett's 48 yards were his lowest since Week 9. "Their mindset coming in was to stop the run. ... They were a physical bunch. They've got a great front seven and they did a good job. The box and safeties were down, but it was a good challenge for us." Forsett also appeared to tweak his troublesome ankle in the first half. Practice reports will be worth watching, but he should bounce back as a high-end RB2 against the Texans in Week 16.

Justin Forsett rushed for 48 yards on 16 carries in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

Forsett had a mouthwatering matchup on paper, but the Jaguars have been playing better defense for the better part of two months now. This game was sloppy and dominated by five field goals and a special teams touchdown. Forsett should find more running room in Week 16 against the Texans provided he's healthy. Forsett has battled an ankle injury lately and briefly exited Sunday's game in the first half to be looked at by trainers. He'll be a borderline RB1/2.

Playing through a knee injury, Justin Forsett rushed 13 times for 71 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Week 14 win over the Dolphins.

He added two catches for seven yards. Forsett was handled with care, ceding 11 touches to backups Lorenzo Taliaferro and Bernard Pierce. That's the bad news. The good news is, Forsett appeared healthy, averaging 5.5 yards per carry and ripping off a critical 44-yard run late in the fourth quarter. He should be good to go as at least a top-15 option against the Jaguars in Week 15.

Justin Forsett (knee) is active for Week 14 against the Dolphins.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Forsett is ready for his "full workload" against a Dolphins' run defense that's been struggling in recent weeks. He can be fired up as an RB1. Inactive for the Ravens are WR Michael Campanaro, S Terrence Brooks, CB Rashaan Melvin, G/C Gino Gradkowski, G/T Jah Reid, TE Crockett Gillmore and DE DeAngelo Tyson.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Justin Forsett (knee) "will play" Week 14 against the Dolphins.

As expected. The Ravens' plan all week was the hold Forsett out of practice Wednesday and Thursday before letting him get some reps Friday. They're just trying to manage his reps is his first season as a feature back. Forsett is safe to leave penned into lineups. He's our No. 8 running back this week.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 09:03:00 AM

Justin Forsett (ankle) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Forsett is fully expected to face Miami despite the questionable tag. It's worth noting that his backup is Bernard Pierce, with Lorenzo Taliaferro as the third stringer. Forsett should be penciled into lineups as an RB1.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 03:39:00 PM

Justin Forsett (knee) returned to practice Friday.

As expected. Forsett sat out Wednesday and Thursday, but remained upbeat about his chances of playing Week 14 against the Dolphins. Fire him up as an RB1. Miami has been shredded on the ground the past two weeks.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 12:01:00 PM

Justin Forsett (knee) remained sidelined at Ravens practice Thursday.

Back-to-back DNPs raise a bit of an eyebrow, but Forsett described the missed reps as "rest" on Wednesday. We fully expect him to be ready for his regular role against the Dolphins. Forsett's status will be updated no later than Friday afternoon.
