Danny Woodhead Confident He'll Be The Playmaker He Was Before Torn ACL

Posted Mar 11, 2017

The veteran running back played just two games last year because of a serious knee injury, but says he feels good and expects to be the player he was before the setback.

When Danny Woodhead gets on the field, he's been a versatile difference maker throughout his career.

The biggest question with Baltimore's new running back is in regards to his health, and whether he'll have any lingering effects from the torn ACL he suffered in the second game of last season.

After flying to Baltimore and signing his contract Friday afternoon, Woodhead told reporters in his introductory press conference that he "feels great" after going through the last six months of recovery from the knee injury. He also went through a medical examination and passed a physical before signing with the Ravens.

"I wasn't going to come back if I couldn't do what I could do," Woodhead said. "I want to be able to be the player that I've always been, that I've been the last two or three years, and I believe I am. Otherwise, I wouldn't have tried to come back."

Woodhead has suffered season-ending injuries in two of the last three years. But when he played a full 16-game season in 2015, he put up 336 rushing yards, 755 receiving yards and nine total touchdowns.

The Ravens are hoping to get that version of Woodhead in Baltimore.

"You are talking about a guy who moves the chains, who can do it in any phase," Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "He can run the ball, he can pass protect, he can catch the ball out of the backfield and he can line up as a receiver and catch the ball. Those are the kinds of weapons that we need to move the chains and score points, and that is what we want to do."

Woodhead still has plenty of time to recover before he steps on the field for real football action. Training camp won't open until late-July, when Woodhead will be 10 months removed from the injury.

"I'm an all-or-nothing person, and that's what they're going to get here – is all of me," Woodhead said.
