RB - WAS - IR
This Week Outlook
Washington running back Bryce Love is experiencing soreness in his knee and will be held out of practice.
Love was held out of Friday's session as well, so it appears that he may have suffered a setback. Setbacks in attempted returns from injuries are nothing new in Washington and was a constant theme with another talented young back formerly on their roster. Bryce Love has the talent to claim a large role in the backfield if healthy, but if he cannot return this season, it is fair to wonder if Washington will look to the draft to add another piece to their backfield puzzle. Love may turn into a case study on exceptional talents choosing to return for their senior season after he suffered a torn ACL in the final game of his college career. If he does manage to get healthy before the season is through, he will likely eat into the snaps of both Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic.
Washington coach Ron Rivera says that he is hopeful RB Bryce Love (knee) can return "in the next few weeks."
"The opportunity to get him back on the field is coming soon," Rivera added. The 23-year-old has been out all season with a knee injury. Antonio Gibson remains the RB to roster in this backfield right now.
RB Bryce Love (knee) was spotted at practice Thursday.
Love was placed on the injured reserve in early October with a knee injury. He was spotted jogging on the sidelines in Thursday's practice. Love has yet to play a game this season and will need to log a full practice before being activated from the injured reserve.
Washington RB Bryce Love (knee) has been placed on IR and will miss at least another three weeks.
Love hasn’t played at all this season and his knee has experienced some swelling that has now landed him on the IR. Look for Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic to continue to see the majority of the work out of the Washington backfield. They’ll face a stout Ravens defense on Sunday, making them both tough starts in Week 4. Both could see some work in garbage time though if the Ravens go up big.
Bryce Love is a healthy scratch for Week 3's game against the Browns and he has yet to make his NFL debut.
Love was drafted this season and expected to carve out a role in the Washington backfield, but so far rookie counterpart Antonio Gibson has run away with the lion's share of the carries. Expect another increase in Gibson's workload for Week 3.
