The Ravens backfield is starting to evolve as he recovers from several devastating injuries – and the big name seems to be a strange one.
Baltimore promoted former Falcons and Giants Devonta Freeman to an active roster on Thursday from the practice squad, currently recruiting Tyson Williams and Latavius Murray. The decision to promote Freeman left former Pro Bowler Le’Veon Bell on the practice squad – and now the running back is out of the rotation.
On Wednesday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh suggested he could be playing Bell Sunday against the Chiefs. However, the team decided to promote Freeman.
Bell signed the Ravens’ practice squad on September 7 after disappointing asons with the Jets and Chiefs. Baltimore then signed Freeman and Murray and both were promoted to Bell first.
It is possible that the bell will come in the next week or so.
Still, as of 2017, Bell is considered a pro bowler — and just two years ago he received a four-year, $ 52.5 million deal — it is a little surprising that he is still on the practice squad.
