Baltimore Ravens rookie receiver Rashod Bateman will have groin surgery and be sidelined until September, coach John Harbaugh told reporters Thursday.
“He’s actually getting a surgery either today or Friday on his groin,” Harbaugh said. “He’ll be back from that some time in September, so I think that’s pretty good news.”
The 21-year-old first-round draft pick limped off the practice field Tuesday. He fell to the ground after making a cut while working against cornerback Marcus Peters.
The Ravens open the regular season against the host Las Vegas Raiders on “Monday Night Football” on Sept. 13.
Bateman caught 147 passes for 2,395 yards and 19 touchdowns over three seasons at the University of Minnesota from 2018-20.
