Forsett good to go for week 2?

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Raven are looking to have their full complement at running back, with starter Justin Forsett a full participant in practice:

With backup running back Lorenzo Taliaferro practicing for the second straight day as a full participant, the Ravens look to be at full strength at the position. Taliaferro, who added weight in the offseason and looked ready to take a step forward in the preseason, suffered a setback when he got injured in the preseason. Now the second year player looks ready to go.

Rookie third stringer Javorius 'Buck' Allen played well in the Broncos game despite a bad performance from the offensive line and Forsett. Should Forsett continue to falter, look for Taliaferro and Allen to eat away at the veterans touches.

However, a weak Raiders defense in week 2 should be welcome sight for the Ravens running game. We will likely be singing a very different tune going into week 3.
