| Dixon injury worse than expected, out for the year|
Medial meniscus repaired today - not trimmed
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 25, 5:15 pm
|Source: Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon will be out for the season. He had his medial meniscus repaired today - not trimmed. Out 4-5 months. Brutal (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Tough blow for Dixon and the Ravens. His initial recovery tine was set at 6-8 weeks but now he will miss the entire season. The Ravens will look to Terrance West, Danny Woodhead and are brining in Bobby Rainey for a workout. West and Woodhead will get a bump in our next projections and rankings update.
| Kenneth Dixon tears meniscus|
Ravens RB will have surgery, miss about 6-8 weeks

|NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Kenneth Dixon suffered a tear in his meniscus, according to a source informed of the situation. He'll have surgery today. The Baltimore Sun first reported the news.
FFToday's Take: Dixon was already slated to miss the first four games of the season due to suspension for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy, so this isn't a major development as he wasn't high on too many cheatsheets anyway. This does, however, add to the job security of Terrance West and Danny Woodhead and inches them a spot or two up the draft boards.
|Terrance West in line for big workload?|
OC: I'm looking forward to him toting the rock

FFToday's Take: To be fair, Roman was only asked about West, not Kenneth Dixon, who will miss the first four games of the season due to a PED suspension. However, ESPN's Jamison Hensley suggested earlier this month West is the "unquestioned starter". Caution is advised, if only because Dixon is the more explosive back and Danny Woodhead is a more complete back who will likely replace West in the red zone. It's hard to imagine West being much more of a fantasy factor this year than he was in 2016.
