Hayden Hurst
(USA TODAY SPORTS)

Hayden Hurst was expected to receive a lot of snaps at tight end when the Ravens open up their season at home against the Buffalo Bills on September 9th. That plan has changed.

That’s the word from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, who reports that Hurst has a stress fracture in his foot, needs a screw inserted and is expected to miss three or four weeks.

The Ravens took Hurst out of South Carolina with the 25th overall pick in the draft. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder is, at 25, old for a rookie, having played minor league baseball before playing college football.

This is a tough break not only for Hurst, but for the Ravens who still have bodies at the tight end position—but no one as talented as Hurst.

Maxx Williams, Nick Boyle and rookie Mark Andrews will fight for playing time.
