Running back Terrance West heads to 53-man roster

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that didn't take long. With center Jeremy Zuttah going to injured reserve, the Ravens are bringing running back Terrance West up from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster.

The Towson University star got drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the 3rd round of the 2014 NFL Draft. The Ravens were reportedly interested in the hometown player, but were expected to go after him in the 4th or 5th round if he was still available.

West did well in his rookie season, finishing as the Browns' leading rusher with 673 yards on 171 carries and 4 touchdowns. However, a reported attitude issue ended his time with the Browns prematurely as he came into his second season overweight and showing some work ethic issues. That caused the Browns to trade West to the Tennessee Titans where his continued attitude issues got him released 2 weeks ago. The Ravens opted to add him to the practice squad at that point, allowing him to come back home.

Now with West getting pushed to the active squad, we'll have to see where he sits on a depth chart full of running backs. West joins Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen, and Raheem Mostert who has been the team's kickoff returner. The Ravens cut Jeremy Ross recently, possibly making the move to put Mostert as the full-time return specialist, opening up a spot for another running back.

Baltimore also re-signed tight end Konrad Reuland to the practice squad to take West's place. Reuland by this point has to just have a hotel close to the Ravens' practice facility with how often he has been released and re-signed.
