The Ravens will host the Cincinnati Bengals without their top wide receiver in a pivotal AFC North showdown in primetime on Sunday Night Football. Bateman didn’t practice all week, so this should not come as a surprise, but it will be something to continue monitoring as he tries to return for Week 6.
In four games this season, Bateman has made 11 receptions on 22 targets for 243 yards and a pair of touchdowns. In his absence, expect Mark Andrews, Devin Duvernay, and Demarcus Robinson to see an increase in workload and target share on Sunday night.
