Ravens tight end Nick Boyle headed for injured reserve as he works to ‘get his knee right’

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh talks about having his team prepared to play on Monday Night Football.

The Ravens will move tight end Nick Boyle to short-term injured reserve as he works to “get his knee right,” coach John Harbaugh said Friday.

Boyle practiced last week, and the Ravens hoped he might be ready for game action sooner rather than later, but he was a nonparticipant Wednesday and Thursday. Harbaugh said he could return for Week 4 against the Denver Broncos or Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.

The seventh-year tight end suffered a season-ending knee injury on Nov. 15 last year against the New England Patriots. He had surgery at the time and another cleanup procedure on his knee this summer.

Harbaugh declined to say whether Boyle suffered a recent setback in his recovery. “I don’t get into the details of all that,” he said.

As the Ravens wait for the return of one of the league’s best blocking tight ends, they’ll turn to Eric Tomlinson, who also filled in for Boyle down the stretch last season.
