Ravens placed Danny Woodhead on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Jeremy Langford was promoted off the practice squad in a corresponding move. Ian Rapoport reports Woodhead will not need surgery, and he is expected to return when first eligible after the Week 10 bye. Buck Allen should take on the majority of Woodhead's role until then.
Sep 14 - 12:02 PM

Coach John Harbaugh confirmed Danny Woodhead (hamstring) will miss at least four weeks.

The Ravens are still deciding whether to put Woodhead on I.R., which would knock him out at least eight weeks. We'd bet on it happening rather than Baltimore eating that roster spot every week. Terrance West and Buck Allen are the only healthy backs on the roster, but Jeremy Langford and Alex Collins are practice squad promotion candidates, while Michael Campanaro has also been named as a possible beneficiary. Woodhead may not be back until November.
Sep 13 - 11:31 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is expected to miss 6-8 weeks and is a candidate for injured reserve.

It's a bit lengthier than the 4-6 week timetable NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier Tuesday. Woodhead has been as injury-prone as anyone not named Kevin White the past few years and is closing in on his 33rd birthday. He's unlikely to be a quick healer. Owners need to be prepared to be without Woodhead until November and have a decision to make on fantasy rosters that don't have I.R. spots. It would be really tough to keep him for two months.
Sep 12 - 8:26 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Danny Woodhead (hamstring) will be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

Rapsheet believes the Ravens "have a roster decision to make," intimating he's a candidate for injured reserve. That would indicate a timetable longer than 4-6 weeks, since I.R. would cost Woodhead two months. Fantasy owners are best off planning to be without Woodhead until Halloween, though there's a chance he's back a few weeks sooner. Buck Allen should slide right into Woodhead's pass-catching role, making him the ideal fill-in in PPR leagues. Now 32, Woodhead has appeared in just 22 games since 2013.
Sep 12 - 4:02 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports the Ravens "fear" Danny Woodhead (hamstring) will miss "a significant amount of time."

Woodhead had three quick catches on the opening drive and appeared to be on his way to a big game, but he pulled up running a route near the goal line and had to be carted to the locker room. Woodhead missed time in camp with a hamstring injury, although he would not confirm whether this injury is to the same leg. Buck Allen will see a big boost in touches with Woodhead out and is a great grab off the wire.
Sep 11 - 9:25 AM

Danny Woodhead left Sunday's Week 1 game against the Bengals with a left hamstring injury and is doubtful to return.

Woodhead pulled up on Baltimore's opening drive. He was helped off by a trainer and eventually carted to the locker room. Woodhead may have aggravated a pre-existing injury after missing a chunk of camp with a hamstring issue. He caught all three of his targets for 33 yards and handled one carry for four yards before exiting. Expect Buck Allen to see more run in his absence.
Sep 10 - 1:28 PM

Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is practicing in full this week.

The same goes for Jeremy Maclin (hand), Breshad Perriman (hamstring), and Joe Flacco (back). Woodhead barely saw the field this preseason but should pick up right where he left off as a 32-year-old veteran. He'll likely be the target of a heaping load of check-downs from Flacco this year.
Sep 6 - 3:47 PM

Danny Woodhead (hamstring) returned to practice on Saturday.

As did Joe Flacco (back) and Breshad Perriman (hamstring). Woodhead now has eight days to get ready for next Sunday's opener at Cincinnati. The 32-year-old is one of the better receiving backs in football when healthy.
Sep 2 - 1:54 PM

Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason game.

It's not a surprise with Woodhead missing practice this week. Woodhead could sit out the rest of the preseason and isn't a lock to be ready for Week 1. The Ravens are also expected to hold out WR Breshad Perriman.

Danny Woodhead has been sidelined at practice this week with a hamstring injury.

Beat writer Jeff Zrebiec wonders whether we'll see Woodhead the remainder of the preseason and at least questions his availability for Week 1. Woodhead has been very quiet through two weeks of the preseason, playing just seven snaps last week, rushing once for two yards and failing to catch either of his two targets from an erratic Ryan Mallett. Woodhead's stock should be more than fine as long as he's healthy and once Joe Flacco (back) gets back under center.
Aug 23 - 10:00 AM

Danny Woodhead touched the ball once in Baltimore's second preseason game.

Woodhead rushed once for two yards. He was actually targeted three times by Ryan Mallett, but Mallett's ball placement was an utter disaster, even on checkdowns. Woodhead is going to catch a ton of passes from Joe Flacco, but the whole Ravens' offense is going to go in the gutter if Mallett has to play snaps this season.
Aug 17 - 10:06 PM

Joe Flacco said Danny Woodhead is the best receiving back the Ravens have had since Ray Rice.

"Really, ever since we lost Ray Rice, we haven't had a type of back that’s quite like how Ray was and quite like how Danny is in the passing game," Flacco said. "They just have a very good feel for when they're open and how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes, and you can already see that." Woodhead should have a big role in the passing game after the Ravens lost both Dennis Pitta and Kyle Juszczyk this offseason, and these comments suggest Flacco will be happy to target him early and often. Also a threat in the red zone, Woodhead is being undervalued in both PPR and standard formats.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec wrote he "lost track of how many" passes Danny Woodhead caught during minicamp.

It is not surprising considering Woodhead has multiple 75-catch seasons under his belt, but it is still good to get confirmation. In addition to his large role as a pass catcher, Woodhead should be on the field often in the red zone, which is bad news for Terrance West. Even after Kenneth Dixon returns from his four-game suspension, Woodhead will likely be the Ravens back to own both in standard and PPR.
Jun 19 - 8:54 AM

Joe Flacco said Danny Woodhead brings an element to the Ravens' offense they've been missing since Ray Rice.

"Ever since we lost Ray, we haven’t had the type of back quite like Ray was and quite like Danny is in the passing game," said Flacco. "They just have a very good feel for when they’re open, how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes." Coach John Harbaugh called Woodhead a "big part of the passing game." Despite missing almost all of 2016 with a torn ACL, Woodhead has been a full participant at Ravens OTAs and minicamp.
