After finding out Woodhead injured his left hamstring against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the Ravens have placed the injured runningback on injured reserve. They also promoted another runningback, Jeremy Langford, to the active roster.

As Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zrebiec has reported, Woodhead won’t be able to play until Nov. 19, which is against the Green Bay Packers. He can, however, participate in practice in six weeks.
Jeff Zrebiec also reports the Baltimore Ravens do not have to designate either Maurice Canady or Danny Woodhead right now, as IR set to return. Both are eligible though.
Jeremy Langford has played in 28 games, amassing 737 yards and 10 touchdowns. A big reason he was let go, the incredible playmaking of Jordan Howard, after Langford went down for three games due to an ankle injury.
Many wonder how he landed on a practice squad, rather than a roster, but Windy City Gridiron helps uncover the reasons.
“The 25-year-old had a solid enough rookie season with 816 yards from scrimmage,” wrote Rpbert Zeglinski. “But, he never proved to be more than a "scatback" who also couldn't stay healthy of late with two ankle injuries in the past approximate year.”
Not ideal, as we’re replacing an injury-prone receiving back with the same exact issues. Hopefully though, Jeremy proves valuable to the Ravens offense, where they need a player to produce in the receiving game.
