With Mark Ingram Jr. and JK Dobbins, who have their moments in the Ravens’ ground game, running back Gus Edwards may be the weird man for this year.
The Bleacher Report recently listed Edwards as a player that Baltimore must trade before the deadline. His landing purpose? The Vikings. Here is what the outlet said about the selection:
“The Vikings in Minnesota look like a great place to land after Dalwin Cook suffered a groin injury in week 5. According to Chad Graf of The Athletic, he is not expected to play on Sunday against the Atlanta Sokols and the team will evaluate his injury. .
Alexander Mathison is likely to take the lion̵7;s share of the workload, but Cook cannot return in the coming weeks. Instead of throwing the towel at start 1-4, the Vikings should add a downhill ball carrier, which is on a modest contract and is able to thrive in the tough scheme of offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.
Going to week 6, the crime in Minnesota ranks fourth. Maybe Edwards can support the team’s ground production while Cook sits. “
I’m not so sure Minnesota needs Edwards, to be honest. Running back Alexander Mathison is more than a capable archive. Mike Boone’s re-run adds a decent depth to the team. I think if Cook isn’t all season, maybe. It is reported that he may come out for the game “Falcons”, but there are no reports that he missed a serious time.
