'There's A Chance' Hayden Hurst and Willie Henry Return to Practice This Week

John Harbaugh told reporters on Monday that "there's a chance" tight end Hayden Hurst and defensive tackle Willie Henry could return to practice this week. 

Harbaugh noted that there's a better chance for Hurst to return. 

Hurst underwent surgery last month to repair a stress fracture in his and the rookie has yet to see the field in the regular season. The Ravens have been cautious in the process and clearly, don't want to risk any further long-term injuries in the process. With Hurst's talent, he could be an immediate impact on the field when he returns. 

In his absence, fellow rookie Mark Andrews has separated himself from the group with back-to-back impressive performances against the Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos.

Henry is currently recovering from hernia surgery and seems to have less of a chance to make his season debut against the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday. He had a breakout campaign in 14 games last season and will add a major boost to the defensive line. 

The Ravens have been fortunate enough to avoid any major injuries so far this season and here's hoping the season continues that way.
