Baltimore Ravens running back JK Dobbins refuted an NFL Network report that doubted his readiness for the team’s season-opening game.

Dobbins, 23, missed all of last season after tearing the ACL in his left knee during the preseason.

On Monday, NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport said Dobbins is “no sure thing for Week 1” and that “Baltimore has no incentive to rush him back.”

Dobbins responded with a series of tweets Monday afternoon, saying he may not go on the PUP list and insisting that he is “damn sure going to be ready for week 1.”

“Just know I been working… I been quiet for a reason. I thrive best when I face adversity… .go check my resume,” Dobbins wrote.

“I would post videos but I want all you fake a** doctors and people who have never spoken a word to me to see what me and Jesus been up to on the biggest stage.”

A second-round draft pick, Dobbins rushed for 805 yards and nine touchdowns and added 18 catches for 120 yards in 15 games (one start) as a rookie in 2020.

The Baltimore depth chart at running back also includes Gus Edwards and veteran Mike Davis.
