The Baltimore Ravens worked out free agent running back Le’Veon Bell Monday after a slew of injuries impacted their running back room.

Bell, along with free agent RBs Devonta Freeman and Elijah Holyfield, worked out with the Ravens after the team lost running backs Justice Hill and J.K. Dobbins to season-ending injuries.

Dobbins, the Ravens 2020 second-round draft pick, tore his ACL in Baltimore’s preseason finale against the Washington Football Team on Aug. 28. Hill suffered a torn Achilles during a recent practice.

Bell spent most of the 2020 season with the Kansas City Chiefs after stints with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets. He carried the football 1,556 times over his eight-year career for 6,453 yards and 40 touchdowns. He also caught 394 passes for 3,259 yards and 8 TDs.

Freeman spent the first five seasons of his career with the Atlanta Falcons, then spent time with the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints. He rushed 1,005 times for 4,144 yards and 33 TDs, and caught 264 passes for 2,073 yards and 11 TDs over his seven-year career.

Holyfield, the son of champion boxer Evander Holyfield, spent time on the practice squads of the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles. He appeared in one game for the Eagles in 2019.
