Devin Duvernay Is Close to Returning; Others Dealing With Minor Issues
The Ravens were without two of their top wide receivers Friday as Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay are both dealing with minor health issues.
Harbaugh said Bateman’s ailment is so minor that he probably could have practiced.
“We just said, ‘No,'” Harbaugh said. “We’ll probably hold him out tomorrow too. Some of that soft tissue stuff, fatigue starts to set in. That’s where we’re at with a couple of guys.”
Duvernay, who has been out since suffering a thigh bruise in the M&T Bank Stadium practice Saturday. He is close to returning, Harbaugh said.
“Duvernay still has the tight bruise,” Harbaugh said. “He probably could have gone today, even yesterday. But I pretty much said, ‘Let these young guys get some reps, and let’s get that thing 100 percent right.'”
Harbaugh said cornerback Brandon Stephens is also dealing with a minor soft-tissue injury.
“Hopefully, we got it early enough where we keep it short term,” Harbaugh said.
