JK Dobbins is DUNKED on a reported injury update right now.

Baltimore Ravens running back JK Dobbins quickly fired back at NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport after reporting that Dobbins “wasn’t sure about making it into Week 1.”

“It sounds like the recovery is going well,” Rapoport said July 18 of Dobbins’ rehab after a brutal knee injury in 2021 that forced Dobbins to miss the entire season.

“He’s pushing as hard as he can and there’s really been no backlash,” Rapoport continued. “That said, just based on the timing of the injury, I understand he’s not sure he’ll make it into Week 1.”

Dobbins called out Rapoport and announced he’ll be “damn sure ready for Week 1” after recovering from a brutal knee injury in the 2021 preseason.

Dobbins also said his rehab was so successful that he might even avoid being put on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list to start the preseason. Even if he’s not in the PUP, he has virtually no chance to see the field preseason as the Ravens don’t want to risk another injury of their choice for 2020’s second round.

Dobbins continued to tweet about his comeback season, looking more motivated than ever after spending last year on the sidelines as the Ravens missed the playoffs.

Rapoport responded to Dobbins’ response on The Pat McAfee Show, with the charismatic former Indianapolis Colts player even writing a mock obituary for the longtime NFL insider.

“I’m hoping for JK Dobbins that he’s ready for week 1. That would be great for him,” Rapoport said, adding that he will “stand by his original reporting.”

“I’m very, very, very happy with the source of this report,” continued Rapoport, whom he formerly described as “someone I trust.”

It’s no surprise that Dobbins is scrambling to get back on the field after missing his second NFL season, which was widely predicted to be a breakthrough year for the former Ohio State standout.

But the Ravens are likely to be cautious about their approach to Dobbins’ return, as Rapoport pointed out in his initial report.

“Nobody’s going to push Dobbins to come back before he’s ready,” Rapoport said, which is especially true after an injury-riddled 2021 season at Baltimore. The Ravens’ other starting running back, Gus Edwards, also tore his cruciate ligament and third-stringer Justice Hill ruptured his Achilles tendon, forcing the team to strive for running back depth.

Though all three are expected to make full recoveries, the Ravens still added several insurance options to run back this offseason, drafting Missouri Bellcow Tyler Badie and signing back veteran ex-Falcons Mike Davis.
