OC wanted to “get other backs involved” in Week 1 loss
Roman said Ty’Son Williams’ usage in second half was more a reflection of wanting to get other RBs involved. Said the days of one back playing whole game are over. (The Athletic – Jeff Zrebiec)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Here’s one problem with Roman’s comment: the Ravens haven’t been a one-back team in years. Here’s another problem: Latavius Murray gave the running game next to nothing in “relief” of Williams in Week 1. A more accurate statement would have been Roman doesn’t trust Williams in pass pro yet. Baltimore doesn’t have the margin for error now it used to, and it shouldn’t take long before it becomes clear Williams needs to carry more of the load. The Ravens need to be more concerned with whether it should be Murray, Le’Veon Bell or Devonta Freeman working in tandem with him.
