Sources: Ravens’ Dobbins likely out for season

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins currently is undergoing his MRI, but the expectation going in was that he had suffered a season-ending knee injury, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Dobbins was ruled out for the rest of the Ravens’ 37-3 rout of Washington on Saturday night after suffering a left knee injury on the opening drive.

A second-round pick from a year ago, Dobbins was entering his first season as Baltimore’s featured back. Last season, Dobbins was pivotal in the Ravens’ late-season push to reach the playoffs, gaining 425 yards (eighth most in the NFL) and scoring six touchdowns in the final five regular-season games.

Last year, Dobbins averaged 6.0 yards per carry, the second-highest average by a rookie running back over the past 20 seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. Only the Saints’ Alvin Kamara (6.1) had a higher average as a rookie.
