Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram left Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns in significant pain after suffering a non-contact calf injury.

The moment came as Baltimore’s offense drove into Browns’ territory. Ingram, who had just broken the 1,000-yard mark in the game and set a career-high in touchdowns, had to be taken to the locker room.

Losing Ingram for any significant amount of time would be a devastating blow for the Ravens. While the team will lock up the AFC’s No. 1 seed with a win on Sunday, a long-term injury could potentially sideline him in the postseason.

In Ingram’s absence, running back Gus Edwards will be asked to step into a much larger role.
