Coach John Harbaugh said Hurst (foot) could return to practice this week. Now a full month removed from surgery to address a stress fracture in his foot, Hurst is unlikely to be available Week 4 against the Steelers, even if he resumes practicing within the next few days. A more reasonable target date would be Week 5, at which point he'd take his place in a timeshare with Nick Boyle, Maxx Williams and fellow rookie Mark Andrews. Though he seemingly has the highest ceiling of the bunch, Hurst doesn't project for an every-down role as a rookie, and he'd be lucky to draw more than three or four targets per game.
Hurst (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Denver, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Hurst's recovery timeline was estimated at 3-to-4 weeks when he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot Aug. 24. It seems his rehab process will stretch well beyond the initial timetable, as he still hasn't returned to practice nearly a month later. Nick Boyle, Mark Andrews and Maxx Williams will continue to form a timeshare at tight end.
Coach John Harbaugh said Hurst (foot) isn't expected to take part in practice this week. When he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot on Aug. 24, Hurst was in line for a 3-4 week recovery, but he's already brushing up against the latter end of that timetable. The 2018 first-round pick is thus a better bet to make his pro debut Week 4 (or later) rather than Week 3. Look for the trio of Nick Boyle, Mark Andrews and Maxx Williams to continue holding down the fort at tight end for the Ravens.
Hurst (foot) has been ruled out for Thursday's game in Cincinnati, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Hurst was always expected to miss at least two games after having surgery Aug. 24 to address a stress fracture in his foot. He's likely targeting a return in Week 3 or 4, at which point he would enter a timeshare at tight end. Nick Boyle, Maxx Williams and Mark Andrews had three receptions apiece in Sunday's 47-3 win over the Bills.
Hurst (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Bills. Hurst never had any real shot to play, as he's just two weeks removed from a minor procedure that carries an estimated recovery timetable of 3-to-4 weeks. With Baltimore's next game coming just four days later on Thursday Night Football, the rookie tight end is likely targeting Week 3 or 4 for his regular-season NFL debut. Nick Boyle figures to start at tight end in the meantime, followed by Maxx Williams and Mark Andrews on the depth chart. Hurst is still the best bet of the bunch to establish fantasy value at some point this season.
