The Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens season kick-off did not end on the right note for the 24-year-old Ravens starting Running Back. The second-round pick of the 2020 NFL Draft is most likely to join the sad fate of Ravens’ Pro Bowl tight end Mark Andrews. Despite the injury of pivotal players the Ravens have managed to maintain a 9 – 25 lead up until the very last quarter.

Baltimore, with a record of 10-7 from the previous season, has a strong history of success in Week 1, winning six of its last seven season-openers. The same does not hold true for the Texans, who have only secured one victory in their last six Week 1 games. Houston, having finished with a 3-13-1 record last season, held the No. 2 overall draft pick and selected C.J. Stroud. He will be making his NFL debut opposite 2019 MVP Lamar Jackson. However, the scoreline does not seem to favor their winning odds. 

Week 1 injury might cost Dobbins the season!

With 10:21 remaining in the third quarter, the Baltimore Ravens starting running back, J.K. Dobbins, was in motion when Houston Texans safety M.J. Stewart seemingly landed on the running back’s ankle, sending him sprawling to the ground. Dobbins was immediately examined and subsequently carried off the field through the tunnel. The officials later verified that he would not be rejoining the game.

Reports stated that the running back may have suffered a torn Achilles tendon. If this were to ring true it would materialize the Ravens’ gravest concerns. This unfortunate occurrence might quickly escalate to a season-altering leg injury for Dobbins for the third consecutive season. And the worst part is, that he might not be the only player whose performance is stunted by injury.

The Ravens are optimistic that resting Andrews in Week 1 might considerably increase his chances of being able to participate in the upcoming game against the Cincinnati Bengals next Sunday, who are the current two-time defending AFC North champions. “God willing, I’ll be out there,” hopes the 28-year-old, and so do all the fans rooting for the Ravens.  Nevertheless, in yesterday’s game, Raven crushed the Texans in a glorious 25-9 win.
