Surprise! Ravens bring back Forsett, who was cut on Saturday

BY foxsports • September 5, 2016

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Justin Forsett has been re-signed by the Baltimore Ravens, who cut the former Pro Bowl running back on Saturday.

Forsett ran for 1,266 yards in 2014 and carried for 641 yards as the starter last year before a broken arm cut short his season in late November.

He saw limited action in the preseason before being released in a surprising move. That left the Ravens with only two healthy running backs: Terrance West and Javorius Allen.

On his Twitter account, Forsett wrote Saturday: ''The plot thickens.''

Then, on Monday, Ravens announced he had been added to the 53-man roster.

The team offered no explanation for his release, or why he was brought back.

Forsett was a backup in his first six NFL seasons before blooming into a star with Baltimore in 2014.
