There's a sense of excitement in the air as NFL season is officially upon us. All 32 teams have reported to training camp, which means NFL football games are just about one month away.
While teams around the league gear up for training camps, there's usually some bad luck on the injury front that comes with full contract practices. That's exactly what happened with the Baltimore Ravens, who recently revealed wideout Marquise Brown is dealing with a hamstring injury.
Marquise Brown Injury Update
According to Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, the hamstring issue is worse than originally thought. He hasn't given much substantial information other than this, so we don't know what type of hamstring injury Brown is dealing with or how long he could be sidelined.
Still, the up-and-coming third year wideout has missed three straight practices and looks like he'll be focused more on injury rehab than getting ready for NFL action in the coming weeks.
This is a bad sign for Ravens fans, who had high hopes for a better passing attack in Baltimore next season. Last year, the Ravens finished with the league's top rushing attack (191.9 yards per game) while ranking dead last in passing offense (171.2 yards per game).
As a result, the front office went out and drafted Rashod Bateman in the first round while grabbing veteran Sammy Watkins on free agency.
There was a sense of excitement surrounding Lamar Jackson and his trio of dangerous receivers. Now, the Ravens will wait and see what happens with their top target in Brown.
Currently, the Ravens own the sixth-best odds (+1400) to win the 2021 Super Bowl on FanDuel Sportsbook.
