Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards returned from a torn ACL, LCL and hamstring that he suffered last season in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns and had a day to remember.

Edwards immediately slotted in as Baltimore's No. 1 running back, carrying the ball 16 times for 66 yards and two touchdowns. Now, Edwards is listed as questionable on a short week agains the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football.

Edwards was able to practice on a limited basis, which is a good sign for his availability in this game. With J.K. Dobbins (knee) on injured reserve, it will be up to Edwards and Kenyan Drake to lead the Ravens' backfield for the next few weeks.

The Ravens are slight underdogs in Thursday's Week 8 showdown, and they have several players (Mark Andrews, Rashod Bateman and Ronnie Stanley ) that are questionable on offense.

Best Gus Edwards Prop Bets vs. Buccaneers for NFL Week 8

Edwards may not play as much as he did in Week 7 since it is a short week, but the fact that he practiced gives me optimism that he suits up tonight.

If that is the case, you can't miss out on taking "Gus the Bus" to score against the Buccaneers.

The Ravens have deployed a run-heavy attack in recent weeks, and with Andrews and Bateman both questionable, they may lean on it even more in Week 8. Edwards dominated touches at the running back position and punched in two scores in the red zone in Week 7.

Even though Tampa Bay has a solid defense, Edwards is a great bet at plus money to score in this game.
