Per beat writer Jeff Zrebiec, the Ravens believe WR Rashod Bateman is “ready to break out.” That’s clearly not a stretch, as Baltimore just dealt Marquise Brown after using a Round 1 pick on Bateman in the 2021 draft. Zrebiec adds, however, that the Ravens will “likely” add a veteran WR “at some point.” We’d bet against any available veteran significantly altering Bateman’s 2022 role. But there are some intriguing names still available, most notably Julio Jones and Will Fuller.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh announced Thursday that WR Rashod Bateman will have season-ending surgery for the Lisfranc injury to his left foot. That leaves Devin Duvernay and Demarcus Robinson as the team's top 2 wideouts. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that WR DeSean Jackson is also expected to be active for Monday night's game against the Saints. Rookie TE Isaiah Likely should see more opportunities as well, even after Mark Andrews is healthy. Losing Bateman certainly doesn't help QB Lamar Jackson, who's passing numbers have dipped since Bateman originally went down against Buffalo.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh says WR Rashod Bateman will miss "a few weeks" with the foot injury he aggravated in Thursday night's win over the Buccaneers. That span does include the team's Week 10 bye, so we'll see just how many games he misses. Although it's been frustrating to this point -- thanks primarily to the foot injury -- we'd hang on to Bateman where it makes sense. Baltimore has the 2nd-best remaining schedule for WRs. That finishes especially nicely: at Pittsburgh, at Cleveland, vs. Atlanta and vs. Pittsburgh weeks 14-17.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh said after the Thursday night win over the Bucs that WR Rashod Bateman "tweaked" his previous left foot injury. Harbaugh added that it's "not serious." Still, don't be surprised if Bateman is held out of Week 9, with a Week 10 bye looming.
Ravens WR Rashod Bateman has been ruled out of Thursday night's game vs. the Bucs with a foot injury. It's presumably the same issue that cost him Weeks 5 and 6. Baltimore has a Week 10 bye, so we wouldn't be surprised if Bateman is held out of Weeks 9's game vs. the Saints.
Ravens WR Rashod Bateman (foot) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Bucs. He was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, so we’re not expecting the foot to be much of an issue. Consider Bateman a WR3 with upside against a banged-up Bucs secondary.
