The goal for the preseason is for the starters to get their work, but not get injured. That wasn’t the case for the Ravens following their 31-17 victory over the Falcons Thursday night.
Starting tight end Ed Dickson has a sprained shoulder and defensive lineman Ryan McBean has a fractured ankle, according to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun.
Dickson’s injury is more troubling because the Ravens were already without tight end Dennis Pitta, who has a broken hand.
Dickson is expected to be back for the first game of the season.
McBean is suspended for the first three games of the season.
