Expected to debut Sunday
Coach John Harbaugh noted Friday that Bateman (groin) is expected to be activated off IR for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Bateman's looming return is well-timed, with fellow wideout Sammy Watkins (hamstring) having been ruled out for Sunday's contest. That said, in his anticipated NFL debut, the 2021 first-rounder is likely to be eased into the mix, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun relays via offensive coordinator Greg Roman. With that in mind, Bateman profiles as a speculative Week 6 lineup option, but if the Minnesota product can quickly develop a strong on-field rapport with QB Lamar Jackson, he could emerge as a fantasy factor in the coming weeks.
