J.K. Dobbins currently is undergoing his MRI, but the expectation going in was that he had suffered a season-ending knee injury, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 29, 2021
The initial fear is that #Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins suffered a season-ending knee injury based on the early diagnosis, sources say. He’s having an MRI today to determine the full extent.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 29, 2021
As others have said, initial concern for Dobbins was torn ACL. MRI today will confirm whether that’s accurate. Either way, there wasn’t a whole lot of optimism last night. https://t.co/PVZKKBv2XL— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) August 29, 2021

After being carried off the field by two trainers to the blue medical tent, Dobbins was eventually taken to the locker room by a medical cart.
Dobbins is expected to shoulder a significant load of snaps this season and losing him for any amount of time could hinder the Ravens’ production. He’s been looked at as a player capable of rushing for more than 1,000 yards.
The Baltimore Ravens announce Dobbins is out for the remainder of tonight’s game.

This is yet another rough injury suffered by the Ravens. At one point this training camp, the Ravens have missed nearly every starting offensive linemen and wide receiver. They’re also missing players on defense, including cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey and Jimmy Smith.
