There might be some auditions for tight ends in Baltimore in the next few days.
Ed Dickson injured his shoulder in Thursday night’s game against the Falcons and will have an MRI Friday to determine the extent of the injury. Coach John Harbaugh said that the initial read is that the injury is just a sprain, but that he still expects Dickson to miss at least a couple of weeks. With Dennis Pitta already out with a broken hand, the Ravens could be in the market for another body to fill out their depth chart at the spot.
Harbaugh also said that wide receiver Torrey Smith sprained his right ankle and indicated that he could also miss some time as he waits for a full recovery. Smith downplayed the injury after the game by saying he didn’t even know he had suffered a sprain.
“I didn’t even know it was that,” Smith said, via the Baltimore Sun. “They just made me put ice on it. I’m all right.”
The most serious injury of the night might have been to defensive tackle Ryan McBean. The Ravens think he broke his ankle, although there will be more tests performed on Friday to determine just what McBean did to himself on Thursday night.
