The Ravens activated Wallace (hamstring) from injured reserve on Wednesday. While he will miss four games due to suspension, he could return as early as New Year’s Day against Pittsburgh.

Wallace has appeared in both of Baltimore’s first two games this season but only played one offensive snap, trailing Odell Beckham, Rashod Bateman, Zay Flowers and Nelson Agholor on their depth chart.

Ravens Activate Wide Receiver Tylan Wallace from Injured reserve list

Tylan Wallace has joined his fellow Baltimore Ravens wide receivers in being put on injured reserve following suffering a hamstring injury during their Week 3 loss against Indianapolis Colts, and will miss at least four games as a result of it. Wallace was instrumental in providing special teams coverage this season as their return specialist.

Wallace earned a spot on the final 53-man roster after training camp, playing both of their preseason contests. If Odell Beckham (ankle) is out again Sunday, Wallace could see action again on offense but would fall behind Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman, Nelson Agholor and Devin Duvernay on the depth chart.

2021 fourth-rounder Deontay Long played 19 out of 75 offensive snaps against Cincinnati in Sunday’s loss, connecting on one target for 12 yards gain. While Long will likely miss four consecutive games due to injury, he could return later this season.

Damarious Randall and Laquon Treadwell will both likely join Damarious Wallace on Baltimore’s practice squad after his injury, where both have shown promise during preseason play and could compete for one of three wide receiver spots: rookie fifth-rounder Sean Ryan or Mike Preston/Tyrik Black could potentially fill them.

Field Yates of ESPN reported that the Ravens activated wide receiver Tylan Wallace from injured reserve prior to Sunday’s game in Arizona, per Field Yates of ESPN. Wallace suffered an ankle injury during Baltimore’s Week 3 overtime loss against Indianapolis; with him back, the wide receiving corps should benefit while remaining more versatile as an offensive weapon and special teams player.

Owings Mills, Maryland — Baltimore Ravens rookie Tylan Wallace may be undersized but makes up for it with his competitive spirit and desire. Like his fellow playmaking wideout Steve Smith, Wallace enjoys physical battles against opposing defensive backs while remaining ultra-competitive throughout games.

While Wallace may only have three receptions on six targets so far this season, he’s already proven his worth as an asset on special teams. Wallace may even edge out veteran Laquon Treadwell and undrafted free agent James Proche II for a spot on game-day rosters.

Treadwell and Proche did not practice on Thursday and are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. LaMarcus Wilson, a former first-round selection, also made an appearance on Thursday due to shoulder soreness but is considered doubtful; rookie cornerback Christian Ringo however was cleared for practice, meaning he may make his NFL debut.

Ravens Activate Wide Receiver Tylan Wallace: Signed to practice squad

Tylan Wallace will return from injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s game against the Cardinals and may assume a special teams role; over his past two seasons he played 51 percent of their special teams snaps; it is anticipated he will do the same this time around.

Wallace may only have seen one offensive snap during Baltimore’s initial two preseason games, yet appears to have already earned himself the sixth wide receiver spot. He caught all five catchable passes thrown his way and scored two touchdowns – evidence of his talent both as a steady threat as well as reliable special teamer.

Wallace holds a clear advantage for making the roster over rival players vying for that final slot UDFA WR Laquan Treadwell and undrafted free agent WR James Proche, both of whom missed Monday’s game due to injuries. If Odell Beckham (ankle) were to miss, more snaps may become available; even then however he would fall behind Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman Nelson Agholor and Devin Duvernay on the depth chart.

He may also get the chance to compete for the No. 6 position with Arthur Maulet and Sammie Watkins if both return healthy this week.

Ravens Activate Wide Receiver Tylan Wallace: Released

Wallace spent much of the season on injured reserve due to an ankle injury, but could return at some point in 2022. Wallace finished his second pro season with four catches on seven targets for 33 yards in nine appearances; he is an important component of Baltimore’s special teams unit and currently under contract for two more years.

Underlying his doubtful status for Sunday’s matchup against the Broncos is that, should he not play, it would leave only three active wide receivers on the Ravens roster – which may force them to activate either undrafted free agent running back Owen Wright or veteran defensive back DeAndre Houston-Carson from their practice squad as fill-in options.

Decision-makers for the Ravens must ultimately select their sixth and final receiver accordingly. Both veteran Laquon Treadwell and undrafted rookie wideout James Proche II had dismal preseason performances; Wallace stood out during training camp due to having similar skillset as fellow first-round selection Steve Smith as well as physical characteristics which enable him to compete successfully against defensive backs in one-on-one matchups.

If the Ravens decide to retain six wide receivers, they’ll have to decide between Wallace and undrafted rookie Tarik Black – both had strong camps – but likely prefer Wallace due to his speed over Black’s more experience.
