In the 2021 NFL Draft, the Ravens took WR Rashod Bateman with the 27th overall pick. To start his career, injuries have held back the young playmaker from reaching his true potential. As a rookie in 2021, he played in 12 games. That number was cut in half last season when he played in just six games.
His season ended early due to injury and Bateman opted for surgery. He was limited during OTA’s and started camp on the PUP. However, Bateman was out at practice today and had no limitations. This a great sign for Baltimore’s passing attack in 2023.

That’s enough time for the 23-year-old to ramp up for the start of the 2023 season.
Head coach John Harbaugh said Bateman’s surgery went well and that everything is good. He told the media that Bateman is dealing with a little bit of soreness in other areas. That is expected and the Ravens are monitoring Bateman as the seasons is on the horizon. The Ravens have a new offensive coordinator in Todd Munken this year.
