Collins (foot) rushed nine times for 35 yards and a touchdown while catching his lone target for four yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Collins easily found paydirt from one yard out in the third quarter for his team's lone touchdown. While he's received 11 or fewer carries in each of the past three weeks, Collins has been Baltimore's primary weapon near the goal line with six rushing touchdowns and one receiving score heading into the team's Week 10 bye.

Collins (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite carrying a questionable tag into the weekend, Collins' status never seemed to be in much peril after he put in a full practice Friday. The Ravens' decision to keep the newly acquired Ty Montgomery inactive for Week 9 shows at least some level of confidence in Collins' health, so expect the 24-year-old to maintain his usual role as the team's lead runner. Javorius Allen should handle the bulk of the passing-down work, while No. 3 option Gus Edwards will likely only see light work.

Collins (foot), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foot soreness resulted in Collins being limited in practice Wednesday and missing Thursday's session entirely, but he put forth a full workout Friday. Though it wasn't enough for Collins to shed an injury designation heading into the weekend, it appears there isn't much concern about his availability. He'll likely retain his regular role as the Ravens' top option on the ground, with the newly acquired Ty Montgomery more likely to challenge Javorius Allen for his role as the primary pass catcher out of the backfield.

Collins (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers after being listed as a full practice participant Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Collins sat out Thursday's practice, but his return to a full session Friday bodes well for his chances of suiting up for Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff. Assuming he's a go this weekend, Collins would be in line to continue to head the Baltimore backfield, with newcomer Ty Montgomery probably more of a threat to Javorius Allen's change-of-pace workload. Collins has recorded 11 carries in each of his last two outings and topped out at 68 rushing yards in Week 3, but he does at least offer a decent fantasy floor with double-digit carries in each of his last six outings and three TDs over his last three contests.

Collins (foot) took part in Friday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It won't be clear until after practice how much Collins was able to do, but he was spotted running "without favoring either foot" and apparently doing some Irish dancing before practice, so his foot is seemingly feeling pretty good. The Ravens will reveal Collins' status for Sunday's matchup with the Steelers when they release their final injury report of the week after practice comes to a close.

Collins (foot) didn't practice Thursday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The downgrade to "did not practice" is concerning after Collins was listed as a limited participant Wednesday. What he's able to do (or not do) at practice Friday will be telling with regard to his status for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Currently rounding out the Ravens' running back depth chart behind Collins are Javorius Allen, Gus Edwards and newcomer Ty Montgomery.

Collins (foot) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Assuming his foot issue isn't a major concern, Collins is in line to head the Ravens' backfield Sunday against the Steelers, with newcomer Ty Montgomery probably more of a threat to Javorius Allen's workload. Collins has logged 11 carries in each of his last two games and maxed out at 68 rushing yards in Week 3, but he does at least carry a serviceable fantasy floor with three TDs over his last three contests and double-digit carries in each of his last six outings.

Collins rushed 11 times for 49 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 36-21 loss to Carolina. He also lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Collins got the scoring started, rumbling up the middle for a 14-yard score to cap off the first possession of the game for either team. Unfortunately, he fumbled on the first play of the second quarter, setting up the Panthers to take their first lead of the game and one they would hold on to on the way to a blowout victory. The 24-year-old has seen more than 11 carries only twice this season and has not gained more than 68 yards on the ground. His value will continue to depend on finding the end zone Week 9 at home against Pittsburgh.

Collins rushed for 38 yards on 11 carries and added 10 yards on three catches during Sunday's 24-23 loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

After scoring in three of the first four games of the season, Collins' scoreless streak extended to three games on Sunday. Collins remains the lead back for the Ravens, but his value is really dependent on his scoring as he otherwise averages a modest 57 total yards per game. Next Sunday might be the game in which to turn things around as Baltimore visits a Carolina defense surrendering 4.6 yards per opponent rush this season.

Collins rushed 19 times for 54 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 21-0 win over the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Collins saw a season-high in carries but averaged just 2.8 YPC and salvaged his day by finding the end zone twice. The 23-year-old has not yet topped 68 rushing yards in a game this season despite seeing at least 11 rushes in each of his last four contests. He was also shut out of the passing game for the first time all year and will look to be more involved Week 7 against New Orleans.
