Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst says he is “good to go” for training camp according to Tim Barbalace of 105.7 The Fan.
The No.25-overall pick in the 2018 draft out of South Carolina, Hurst’s rookie season was derailed by a broken foot and he missed time during OTAs this spring with a hamstring issue. The foot is a bigger long-term concern, but Hurst says he is back to normal. “Kind of felt it all of last year, was never really at 100 percent,” Hurst said during an interview on the Vinnie & Haynie Show. “I’m good to go now, all healthy, don’t feel it, and feel 100 percent.”
Third-round rookie tight end Mark Andrews established himself as the Ravens’ No.1 tight end while Hurst struggled with injuries last season, putting up a 34/552/3 line in 16 games in 2018, and has reportedly continued to shine throughout the offseason program. There is room for more than on dominant tight end in the Baltimore offense but Hurst will need a healthy and productive training camp to earn more than a secondary role.
