The Baltimore Ravens brought back veteran running back Kenyan Drake, signing the veteran to their practice squad on Wednesday.

The move comes as Justice Hill is dealing with a toe injury that reportedly could keep him sidelined for this week's game against the visiting Indianapolis Colts. Hill missed practice Wednesday.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh declined to discuss Hill's injury, directing reporters to the injury report.

Drake was one of three RBs brought in this week for workouts with the club, joining James Robinson and Ronald Jones. He helps bolster a unit that took a hit with the season-ending injury to J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) in Week 1.

Drake spent training camp with the Indianapolis Colts.

He was with the Ravens in 2022, playing in 12 games (five starts). He rushed for 482 yards and four touchdowns and also caught 17 passes for 89 yards and a score.

"It's funny -- I was watching the [Cincinnati] Bengals tape last week again from last year as we were preparing. [Drake] was on the tape, and he had good games in those two games he played," Harbaugh said. "I was thinking, 'Man, Kenyan Drake looked good in those games.' It's like that and next thing you know, here he is."

Drake has rushed for 3,866 yards and 33 TDs in 101 career games (44 starts) for four teams since being selected in the third round of the 2016 draft by the Miami Dolphins.
