Justin Forsett RB BAL 4 Days
Forsett had 30 yards on seven carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins.
With Ray Rice suspended for the first two regular-season games, and Bernard Pierce exiting Saturday's exhibition contest due to a potential concussion, there's some chance that Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro will have to carry the load in Week 1. More likely than not, Pierce will be ready by Week 1, but that would still leave Forsett and Taliaferro to handle the backup duties. While Taliaferro has generally been more impressive this preseason, both players have done a nice job for the Ravens.

Forsett gained 10 yards on two carries and 24 yards on two receptions in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys. He also fumbled for the second week in a row.
Forsett was once again outplayed by rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro, his primary competition to back-up Bernard Pierce for the first two weeks of the season while Ray Rice is suspended. Forsett offers little in the way of upside, but he could see third-down work early in the season.

Forsett gained 29 yards on seven carries and 13 yards on one reception in Thursday's preseason opener against the 49ers.
Working as the No. 3 running back, Forsett turned in a solid performance, as did his position mates. With Ray Rice suspended for the first two weeks of the regular season, Forsett and fourth-round rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro are competing for touches behind presumed fill-in starter Bernard Pierce. Taliaferro was more impressive than Forsett on Thursday, as the rookie gained a well-earned 71 yards on 13 carries. While both Forsett and Taliaferro have a shot to open the year as the No. 2 running back, touches may be hard to come by once Rice returns. That said, with Rice and Pierce trying to bounce back from lousy 2013s, there may be some opportunity for another back to break through.

The Baltimore Sun expects Justin Forsett to "provide value as a third-down back" during Ray Rice's suspension.
With Rice expected to get a multi-game ban to open the season, Bernard Pierce is the favorite for early-down and short-yardage work with veteran Forsett mixing in on passing downs and handling blitz pick-up duties. Forsett knows new OC Gary Kubiak's offense from their time together in Houston. Rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro will also be in the mix for backfield work. It's a camp battle to watch.

Justin Forsett is running ahead of Lorenzo Taliaferro at OTAs.
Throughout offseason work, the pecking order for Ravens running backs has gone Ray Rice, Forsett, Taliaferro. Bernard Pierce (shoulder surgery) has been sidelined. Forsett could very well open the season as Pierce's passing-down complement once Rice's suspension is handed down.

Jaguars released RB Justin Forsett.
Forsett, 28, inked a two-year deal last offseason but carried the ball just six times for 31 yards while battling injuries. Forsett landed on I.R. in December with a broken foot and is questionable for OTAs. The move saves the Jaguars $1.15 million. Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson now sit atop the depth chart.

The Jaguars are expected to release RB Justin Forsett.
Forsett's first year in Jacksonville resulted in six carries for 31 yards and nine appearances. Battling a foot injury and due $1.1 million in 2014, there's no way he'll be back even though Maurice Jones-Drew is hitting the open market. For now, we'd guess the Jags roll with Jordan Todman and a draft pick in their backfield going forward.

Jaguars placed RB Justin Forsett (foot) on injured reserve, ending his season.
Forsett broke a bone in his foot during Week 12, losing out on a chance for real action as Maurice Jones-Drew battles a hamstring pull. Forsett's season ends with just six carries for 31 yards and 15 catches for 82 yards in nine games. Due $1.1 million in 2014 base salary, the Jags should be able to find better value for their money by drafting a running back.
