Ravens RB Alex Collins arrested after car crash near Baltimore, waived by team

NFL injury news: Ravens place RB Alex Collins on IR, activate RB Kenneth Dixon

Ravens running back Alex Collins was arrested Friday morning after a car crash in Owings Mills, Maryland, according to Baltimore County police and the team (via The Baltimore Sun).

Collins, 24, was arrested after police responded shortly before 7 a.m. Friday to a report that a vehicle had crashed into a tree in an area west of Interstate 795 in the suburb northwest of Baltimore, a police spokeswoman told The Sun.

Ravens VP of public relations Chad Steele told The Sun that the team has spoken with police and is aware of the situation, although it was unclear what charges Collins was facing as the result of his arrest. It’s also unclear if Collins was driving the vehicle, according to the report.

The team later announced it waived the third-year player.

Collins, who ran for 973 yards and six touchdowns in 2017, managed only 411 yards on the ground but scored seven rushing TDs in 2018. He was placed on injured reserve after Week 12 with a sprained foot, ending his third NFL season. ​

Coach John Harbaugh on Wednesday at the NFL combine called Gus Edwards the Ravens’ top running back but added that the team would like to add some competition at the position this offseason.
