Collins was arrested Friday following a vehicle crash near the team training facility.

After the accident, police arrested Collins, though the nature of the charges against the running back remain unknown.

Ravens vice president of public relations Chad Steele told The Sun after the incident that the team had spoken with police and was aware of the situation.

Collins struggled a year ago after a breakout season in 2017 for the Ravens.

Collins, 24, was released around 12:30 a.m. Saturday on three chargers after an initial hearing at a Baltimore County courthouse: possession of more than 10 grams of marijuana, intent to distribute marijuana and possession of a handgun in a vehicle.

Collins led Baltimore with 973 yards rushing in 2017 and scored eight touchdowns in 2018 before a foot injury ended his season in late November.
