Ravens waive rookie running back Magee


Needing to make room on their 53-man roster for newly-acquired cornerback Will Davis, the Ravens waived rookie running back Terrence Magee on Tuesday.
The undrafted free agent from Louisiana State was inactive for Sunday’s game in Oakland and took part in only four special-teams plays in the season opener against Denver. Initially waived at the end of the preseason, Magee was re-signed to the 53-man roster to serve as a third healthy running back as Lorenzo Taliaferro wasn’t recovered from a knee injury suffered in the second preseason game.
With Taliaferro healthy and carrying the ball seven times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the 37-33 loss to the Raiders, Magee’s time on the active roster appeared short as he fell to fourth in the running back pecking order. Wanting to boost depth at the cornerback position, Baltimore acquired Davis from Miami in exchange for a 2016 seventh-round pick on Monday.
Magee rushed for 93 yards on 26 carries in the preseason and would appear to be a candidate to be signed to the practice squad should he clear waivers.
