Kennth Dixon is set to miss the entire season this year for the Ravens. While training on his own, Dixon tore his meniscus knocking him out for the remainder of the year.

Somewhat fortunately for Dixon, his four game suspension he was set to serve at the beginning of the season for PED use can be served while on the injured reserve.

As of now Terrence West is slated as the lead back followed closely up by Danny Woodhead. West will likely serve as the goal line and early down back while Woodhead will catch passes on third down and in the red zone.

Now joining the stable, Bobby Rainey was signed by the Ravens seemingly in answer to Dixon injury. Rainey had his best season in 2013 where he ran for 5 touchdowns and 532 yards. Rainey will likely have a chance to surpass those numbers in a Ravens offense that is already wearing thin.

The 2016 fourth round pick has often been attributed as jump starting the Ravens running game last season. Now that role seemingly falls to the committee of Terrence West and Danny Woodhead.
