OWINGS MILLS — Four-time Pro Bowl running back Dalvin Cook cleared waivers and will sign for the playoffs with the Ravens, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Jets paid Cook, 28, $6.8 million this season and now he will get a chance to pursue a Super Bowl with the Ravens. Cook carried the ball only 67 times for 214 yards, a 3.2-yard average — 1.4 yards below his career mark. He played only 202 snaps on offense.

He ran for more than 1,000 yards for four consecutive seasons (2019-22) with the Vikings.

The Ravens also ruled out six players for the regular-season finale against the Steelers on Saturday. The Ravens have clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs while the Steelers are still fighting for a spot in the postseason and need a win with some help to extend their season.

The players ruled out by the Ravens are:

  • Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (not injury-related)
  • Linebacker Malik Harrison (groin)
  • Cornerback Marlon Humphrey (calf)
  • Quarterback Lamar Jackson (not injury-related)
  • Defensive back Daryl Worley (shoulder/ankle)
  • Guard Kevin Zeitler (knee/quad)

In addition, safety Kyle Hamilton (knee), cornerbacks Ronald Darby (illness), Arthur Maulet (hip) and Brandon Stephens (ankle), wide receiver Tylan Wallace (knee ), and safety Ar’Darius Washington (pectoral) are questionable, and wide receiver Zay Flowers is doubtful with a calf injury.

The Steelers have not ruled any players out.

Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick (knee), linebacker Elandon Roberts (pec), and safety Trenton Thompson (neck) are questionable.

Tyler Huntley will get the start at quarterback for the Ravens.
