Rashod Bateman, a Ravens rookie, will miss ‘weeks’ due to a groin injury.

Rashod Bateman, the Baltimore Ravens’ rookie wide receiver, will be out for a few weeks.
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced on Wednesday morning that first-round rookie wide receiver Rashod Bateman will be out for a few weeks due to a groin injury suffered in practice on Tuesday.
The No. 1 was used by Baltimore.
The former Minnesota Golden Gophers great wide receiver was selected as the 27th overall pick in the NFL Draft in 2021.
Given that Baltimore’s passing offense is one of the worst in the league, not having a true talent like Bateman available for what appears to be the majority of the preseason is a massive concern.
In 2021, the Ravens expected him to be a key contributor.
For a few weeks, the Ravens will have to adjust to life without Bateman in the receiving corps.
Rashod Bateman, the Ravens’ first-round pick, will miss “a number of weeks” due to a groin injury suffered during practice on Tuesday, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
On paper, Baltimore is one of just a few teams that can realistically represent the AFC in Super Bowl 56. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 11, 2021 Baltimore Ravens WR Rashod Bateman out for weeks with groin injury
After finally winning a playoff game last year, franchise quarterback Lamar Jackson needs to lead his team to the AFC Championship game this year.
Otherwise, the 2021 NFL season will be remembered as a huge letdown for the Ravens Flock.
They must reach the final four.
While Bateman will not change the world as a wide receiver for the Ravens, his addition to the roster will undoubtedly aid Jackson’s development as a passer in his fourth season in the league after graduating from Louisville.
Baltimore’s pursuit for a third Lombardi Trophy will benefit from a more balanced offensive.
For the time being, Bateman may not be seen in a Ravens uniform until the regular season begins.
Although Baltimore has time to react, this is not the type of injury news that will please supporters.
