Injuries limited the veteran running back in 2017-18, allowing him to appear in only eight regular-season games and total 14 carries for 56 yards, adding 33 receptions for 200 yards.
Woodhead left the Ravens' Week 1 game against the Cincinnati Bengals last season with a hamstring injury and was placed on injured reserve on September 14. On that possession, Woodhead had three catches for 33 yards and one carry for four yards before leaving with the injury. He returned to practice two months later and returned to game action on November 19 against the Green Bay Packers. While he appeared in just five games combined in 2014 and 2016, Woodhead was highly productive when healthy in 2013 and 2015. However, with the Ravens re-signing offensive lineman James Hurst, there was less of a need for Howard on the roster. Baltimore is expected to fill the right tackle spot with either Hurst, Alex Lewis or a draft pick.More news: Murphy Has Big Plans, Unveils First Budget As NJ's Governor
