OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens signed Le’Veon Bell to their practice squad, adding another backfield option in the aftermath of J.K. Dobbins’ season-ending injury.

Bell was cut early last season by the New York Jets, then rushed for 328 yards in 11 games with Kansas City. He did not play in the Super Bowl for the Chiefs.

Bell rushed for more than 1,000 yards three times in five seasons for Pittsburgh. He then sat out the whole 2018 season in a contract dispute. He signed with the Jets and rushed for 789 yards in 2019.

The Ravens lost Dobbins to a knee injury in their final preseason game. That left Gus Edwards as their top remaining running back, although quarterback Lamar Jackson is a big rushing threat as well.

The Ravens announced running back Justice Hill was going on injured reserve and released safety Jordan Richards and also the signing of running back Trenton Cannon.
