Ravens missing WRs Beckham, Bateman in Week 4 vs. Browns
The Baltimore Ravens will be missing key players for the second straight week.
Wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashod Bateman won't play Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns due to an ankle and hamstring injury, respectively.
Beckham also missed last week's loss to the Indianapolis Colts, while Bateman was active for the season's first three games. The 2021 first-round pick, however, has caught only seven passes for 59 yards in 2023.
With the two wideouts sidelined, Baltimore will presumably continue to rely heavily on Zay Flowers, a first-round rookie who leads the team with 25 targets, 21 receptions, and 188 receiving yards. The Ravens' offense also features tight end Mark Andrews and wideout Nelson Agholor, among others.
Baltimore also ruled out cornerback Marlon Humphrey and pass-rushers David Ojabo and Odafe Oweh. Offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley is listed as doubtful for the AFC North clash and is expected to be sidelined for the third straight week.
The matchup between the 2-1 Ravens and 2-1 Browns is one of Sunday's biggest games. Cleveland boasts the league's No. 1 defense in scoring and total yards.
