Watson suffered the injury on the first play from scrimmage in Baltimore’s preseason game against the Detroit Lions on Saturday. The Ravens have already been dealing with injuries at tight end. Both Dennis Pitta and Maxx Williams have missed time during training camp with injuries.
The former Georgia tight end signed a two-year deal with the Ravens in March after recording career highs in catches (109) and yards (825) with the New Orleans Saints in 2015.
