The Baltimore Ravens announced Wednesday that they’ve placed RB Kenneth Dixon on injured reserve and promoted RB De’Lance Turner to their active roster.
Earlier in the day, Ian Rapoport reports that Dixon suffered a knee injury that is expected to keep him out several weeks and it appears as though the Ravens felt it was best to put him on I.R. and add some more depth at the position.
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.
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.
