Week 17 Outlook
NFL Insider Adam Caplan is reporting the Baltimore Ravens have waived running back Jeremy Langford on Saturday.
Langford's stint on the Ravens' active roster didn't last very long. He was waived Saturday in favor of Alex Collins. Expect Langford to catch on with another club's taxi squad at some point in 2017.
Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reported that the Ravens promoted running back Jeremy Langford to the active roster from the practice squad to take the place of Danny Woodhead, who today landed on the injured reserve. The Ravens added Langford to the practice squad Sept. 4. Langford, a fourth round pick out of Michigan State, started five games for the Bears during the 2015 and 2016 seasons, recording 737 rushing yards, 421 receiving yards, and 11 total touchdowns in his career.
Langford, who may not suit up for Sunday's game against Cleveland, currently has no fantasy value and is penciled in as the third-string running back.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting free agent running back Jeremy Langford has signed with the Baltimore Ravens.
Langford, who fell victim to roster cuts, the Bears moved on from him over the weekend, cleared waivers and signed with the Ravens' practice squad Monday. Since Baltimore is already dealing with a plethora of injuries, it appears it could be another one of those seasons in which players wind on IR in plenty for the Ravens. In that scenario, it wouldn't surprise me to see Langford starting a handful of games for the Ravens in 2017. Currently, he is nothing more than a notable name on waivers.
Jeremy Langford stepped in with the second team on Sunday. He was given five carries, which he turned into 18 yards. He also gained 19 yards on two catches. Langford's ankle looked to hold up well in the game too, which is a positive as the Bears lost Cameron Meredith to a bad knee injury.
Langford played with the second unit most likely only because of Ka'Deem Carey being sidelined six weeks with a wrist injury. Langford showed enough that he should be Jordan Howard's backup to start the season. He is not a great handcuff, but will be the guy to step in if Howard were to get hurt.
Chicago Bears beat writer Rich Campbell is reporting running back Jeremy Langford (ankle) suffered a "minor" ankle injury during a walkthrough at training camp Thursday night.
Campbell is adding that Langford's ankle injury is similar to the one he sustained last season and it is said to be "minor." As a result of the injury, the Bears could elect to hold him out for the next two-to-three weeks as a precaution, which will allow Benny Cuningham to see increased reps with the second team offense. Currently, Langford is slated to open the 2017 season as Jordan Howard's primary backup.
