According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Ravens running back Terrence West underwent and MRI and is not expected to miss an extended period of time.

The good news comes after West re-injured a nagging calf injury on Sunday that saw him exit the game early. West, who leads the Ravens in rushing touchdowns, started all four games prior to Sunday’s matchup against the Raiders in Oakland. He rushed for 17 yards on two carries before he was forced to exit. With the news of West’s injury, Buck Allen and Alex Collins — who started on Sunday — look to assume the carries that West will leave behind.

Again, it is unclear how long West will be out, but Collins and and Allen proved capable of handling the load, combining for 128 yards on 33 carries for a touchdown. West is the second running back that the Ravens have lost so far to injury as Danny Woodhead was placed on IR after a Week 1 injury.

Hopefully Allen and Collins can continue to elevate their play as the Ravens muddle through another injury plagued season.
