only suffered a sprained right shoulder against the Atlanta Falcons and didn't incur any structural damage Thursday night as a magnetic resonance imaging exam confirmed the initial diagnosis, according to a source.
With rest and rehabilitation, Dickson is projected to return in time for the Sept. 10 season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Ravens' top two healthy tight ends on the roster are former fifth-round pick Davon Drew and former St. Louis Rams starter Billy Bajema, who caught a touchdown from Curtis Painter against the Falcons.
Meanwhile, it's feared that defensive end Ryan McBean broke his left ankle against the Falcons when his leg got rolled up from behind by two players.
McBean is already suspended for the first three games of the regular season for a violating of the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy.
