Ravens' Rashod Bateman (core) returning to practice ahead of Week 4

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh told reporters that 2021 first-round pick Rashod Bateman (core) will return to practice this week.

What It Means:

Bateman was the talk of Ravens training camp this offseason, drawing praise from the media as well as from stud cornerback Marlon Humphrey, before suffering a core muscle injury that required surgery. A return to practice this week would put him on track with regards to the team's initial timetable for his return. He's eligible to come off of the injured reserve as early as this week, but we might not see the rookie play for a couple more weeks.

Bateman is worth grabbing in any fantasy format that allows for Injured Reserve spots, and may even warrant a bench spot in leagues without "IR" spots. Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown currently sit alone atop the Ravens' pass-catching group, but could soon be joined by Bateman.
