Rashod Bateman Tweaks Foot Injury in Tampa Bay

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman (7) warms up during a NFL football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,Thursday, Oct. 27, 2022 in Tampa, Fla.

Rashod Bateman's foot is hurting again, as the Ravens' top wide receiver was ruled out after halftime of Thursday Night Football in Tampa Bay.

Bateman joined tight end Mark Andrews, the Ravens' leader in receptions (39), targets (59), receiving yards (455) and touchdowns (5), in the locker room. Andrews left in the first half due to a shoulder injury.

"They are not serious. Rashod was a tweak of what he had before, and Mark is not a serious, long-term injury," Head Coach John Harbaugh said after the game.

Bateman was targeted by one of Lamar Jackson's 30 passes in the first half, a go route that fell incomplete too deep.

Bateman missed two games due to the foot injury but returned last week against the Cleveland Browns to catch four passes for 42 yards. He played his usual number of snaps against the Browns.

That left Devin Duvernay, Demarcus Robinson, James Proche II and rookie tight end Isaiah Likely as Jackson's top targets in the second half against the Bucs. Jackson responded with three straight touchdown drives in the second half as the Ravens rolled to a 27-22 victory.
