Hurst was close to playing Sunday night against the Steelers, according to the tweet. Coach John Harbaugh said the team is looking for Hurst to have full participation in practice after being limited all last week. It's unlikely Hurst explodes on to the scene right away at this point, but for those in need of a TE he's a name to keep an eye on.
BAL TE Hayden Hurst - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 9 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Hayden Hurst scored the first touchdown of his career last week against the Panthers, finishing the game with two catches and 29 yards. While it was a nice step in the right direction for the rookie out of South Carolina, the Ravens have been using up to four tight ends in a full committee approach thus far this season, making it hard to trust any individual over another. Hurst remains the most valuable as a long-term stash option in most leagues, and should definitely be owned in dynasty formats, but he should remain on the bench until we see a more clearly defined role and consistent production from him.
