Ravens rookie RB Keaton Mitchell ‘week to week’ after suffering hamstring injury vs. Lions

posted in: News | 0

Ravens rookie running back Keaton Mitchell could be out for at least one game, coach John Harbaugh said Monday.

The speedy undrafted back out of East Carolina suffered a hamstring injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s blowout win over the Detroit Lions at M&T Bank Stadium and did not return. The injury is not considered severe, however, Harbaugh said.

“It will be week to week,” he said of Mitchell’s status, adding that he has an “outside” chance to play Sunday against the Cardinals in Arizona but that it’s possible he could return Nov. 5 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Mitchell played 12 snaps Sunday, the majority of which came on special teams.

But he also got the first offensive touch of his career, catching a short pass over the middle from quarterback Lamar Jackson that he turned into a nifty 9-yard gain in the second quarter. He logged two snaps on offense after playing exclusively on special teams in his NFL debut against the Tennessee Titans in London on Oct. 15.

Mitchell had been on injured reserve after suffering a shoulder injury during the preseason.

Harbaugh also had no update on Tyus Bowser, who met with doctors last week. The seventh-year outside linebacker remains on the non-football injury list with a knee injury that kept him out of the Ravens’ offseason program and training camp.

“No resolution yet,” Harbaugh said of Bowser, whom the coach initially expected would be ready for the start of the regular season.

Harbaugh said there were no other significant injuries.
