Ravens Place RB Alex Collins On IR, Activate RB Kenneth Dixon


The Baltimore Ravens announced Saturday that they’ve placed RB Alex Collins on the injured reserve list and activated RB Kenneth Dixon from I.R.

Collins has been dealing with a foot issue all season and it appears as that it got to the point where the Ravens felt it was best to shut him down for the year. According to Tom Pelissero, Collins injury won’t require surgery.

Collins, 24, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2016. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $2.566 million contract that included a $184,384 signing bonus when he was cut loose the by the Seahawks at the start of the 2017 season.

Collins signed on to the Ravens’ practice squad a few days later and was eventually promoted to their active roster. The Ravens brought him back on an exclusive rights contract this past April.

In 2018, Collins appeared in 10 games and rushed for 411 yards on 114 carries (3.6 YPC) to go along with 15 receptions for 105 yards receiving and eight total touchdowns.

Dixon, 24, is a former fourth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2016. He signed a four-year, $2.723 million rookie contract that included a $383,392 signing bonus and stands to make base salaries of $630,000 and $720,000 over the final two games of the season.

The Ravens placed Dixon on injured reserve back in September with a knee injury.

In 2018, Dixon has appeared in one game and rushed for 44 yards on 13 carries (3.4 YPC) to go along with one touchdown.
