Ravens WR Miles Boykin is headed to short-term IR due to a hamstring injury according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. Fowler also mentioned fellow WR Rashod Bateman could land in the same situation because of his groin injury.
The injuries to Bateman and Boykin take from the Ravens' wide receiver depth on a team already thin with proven talent at the position. Marquise Brown, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche are among the healthy wideouts for Baltimore with 11 days to go before their Week 1 game.
Four days before his potential preseason debut, nearly three weeks before the Ravens’ regular-season opener, Lamar Jackson was locked in. His passing was accurate. His timing was on. His mood was upbeat. Only a handful of presnap penalties on the Ravens’ offensive line and skill position players had soured coach John Harbaugh’s mood.
The story went on to say now Jackson has to find people to throw to. Brown (hamstring), Boykin (hamstring) and Cain continued to rehabilitate from early-camp injuries. Watkins missed his third straight practice. Bateman (groin) remains out until at least September. Proche II sat out his first practice of camp after appearing to tweak his back Monday. That left just two draft picks at the position available — Duvernay (20 catches as a rookie) and Wallace, a rookie this season.
The story said Bryant's playing time seemed to come mostly at the expense of Duvernay, who played 23 fewer snaps than he did against the New England Patriots. Also worth noting, Brown’s slump continued, he played his lowest snap count since Week 4, the story added. Bryant finished with four receptions for 28 yards, including a 16-yard catch-and-run that led to a game-tying field goal on the team’s final drive of regulation.

Ravens WR Miles Boykin (thigh, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 6. If Boykin can't play, Devin Duvernay could see a big uptick in playing time against the pass-funnel Eagles.
