Ravens rookie wide receiver Rashod Bateman limped off the practice field Tuesday with an undisclosed leg injury.

Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh is not available to the media on Tuesdays but multiple reports indicate Bateman suffered a soft tissue injury and would undergo further tests.

Bateman went to the ground making a cut with cornerback Marcus Peters defending.

The injury almost assuredly eliminates Bateman from participating in the Ravens’ preseason opener this week, meaning he’ll join Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, Miles Boykin and Deon Cain on the sideline.

Bateman missed practice time last week with “muscle tightness.”

The first-round pick is projected to be one of the team’s top three receivers in 2021 with newcomer Sammy Watkins and Brown. But Brown has been out for two weeks with a hamstring strain.
