While Lamar Jackson has dominated headlines for much of the 2019 season, there's a different story taking over ahead of Baltimore's Divisional round clash with the Tennessee Titans.

Star running back Mark Ingram has been dealing with a calf strain of late, putting his availability for the Ravens' postseason debut up in the air. Well, in some good news for Greg Roman's offense, Ingram was back at practice Thursday, which certainly bodes well or his ability to suit up on Saturday.

The former Alabama product had one of the best years of his career in 2019. In his debut season in Baltimore, Ingram tallied 1,018 rushing yards, 10 touchdowns and averaged five yards per carry. He also hauled in 26 receptions and logged five touchdown catches.

He, along with the rest of the offensive starters, sat out the regular-season finale in order to get some additional rest. It looks like that decision could end up paying dividends for the 30-year-old as he battles to get healthy enough to take the field.

Ingram's status was described as "day-to-day" on Wednesday, but appearing in Thursday's practice is certainly a step in the right direction.

If, however, Ingram can't suit up, the Ravens will likely turn to Gus Edwards as their go-to running back. In 2019, the 24-year-old racked up 711 rushing yards and three touchdowns, serving as the primary backup to Ingram.
