The Baltimore Ravens' do-it-all running back returned to practice after spending most of this season on IR, the team announced Tuesday.
The 32-year-old entered the season with what looked to be a big role, touching the ball four times on a 13-play drive in his only series. However, he suffered a hamstring injury after participating in just six snaps and has been on the shelf since.
Woodhead, however, should siphon snaps from Buck Allen, who has played the pass-catching role. Most of Allen's production has come in garbage time, and Woodhead is a major upgrade as a receiver out of the backfield.
Speaking on Monday, coach John Harbaugh said the backfield depth is a good problem to own.
"Sure, it's always good to have players," he said, via the Baltimore Sun. "All those guys are all reliable players, so it's a good problem to have."
