OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram surprisingly didn’t practice Tuesday as he continues to deal with a calf injury.
Two weeks ago, Ingram said he was confident that he would be ready when the Ravens began the playoffs. On Friday, coach John Harbaugh said Ingram would be practicing at full speed this week.
But Harbaugh declined to comment on Ingram’s status when asked about the Pro Bowl runner before Tuesday’s practice.

“We’re not talking about injuries this week. We’ll just wait and see,” Harbaugh said. “You’ll know on [Saturday] on all those guys.”
The top-seeded Ravens host the sixth-seeded Tennessee Titans in the AFC divisional round on Saturday.
Ingram, 30, injured his left calf early in the fourth quarter of Baltimore’s 31-15 win at Cleveland on Dec. 22. An MRI revealed a mild to moderate strain, Harbaugh said.

In his first season with the Ravens, Ingram finished 14th in the NFL in rushing with 1,018 yards. His 15 total touchdowns tied the franchise single-season record and ranked fourth in the NFL.
Ingram played a significant role in the Ravens breaking the 41-year-old NFL record for most rushing yards in a season.
If Ingram is sidelined, Gus Edwards would start in his place. Edwards set a career high with 130 yards rushing filling in for Ingram in the 28-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the regular-season finale.
ALAMEDA, Calif. — Raiders running back Josh Jacobs was once homeless as a child, he and his four siblings sometimes living out of a car with their dad, Marty, on the north side of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

On Tuesday, the No. 24 pick of the 2019 draft, and a leading candidate for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, took to social media to say he had purchased a house for his father.

The Raiders also tweeted out video of Marty’s reaction and said the home was in Oklahoma.
Jacobs rushed for 1,150 yards and seven touchdowns in averaging 4.8 yards per carry and caught 20 passes for 166 yards and eight first downs, despite missing three of the Raiders’ final four games with a fracture in his right shoulder. His 88.5 rushing yards per game ranked third in the NFL, behind the Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry (102.7) and the Cleveland Browns’ Nick Chubb (93.4).
Before missing those games, Jacob had played through the pain after suffering the injury in Week 7.
He was selected with a pick acquired in the Khalil Mack trade of 2018.
Jacobs’ journey from homelessness to high school stardom to Alabama to a first-round pick of the Raiders was documented in an ESPN SportsCenter Featured piece this past spring.
“Sleeping in the car, I always look back on it,” Jacobs said at the time. “It’s always going to be something that molded me into who I am. It might have been rough, but, I mean, it’s my life.”
