Former Ohio State Buckeye and Baltimore Ravens running back JK Dobbins is close to returning to the field, but is not expected to play on Sunday versus the Miami Dolphins, according to ESPN NFL analyst Adam Schefter.

Dobbins is one step closer to returning and impacting Baltimore’s offense after tearing his ACL, LCL, hamstring, and meniscus in the 2021 NFL training camp. He hasn’t played in a regular-season game since the 2020 NFL season.
