Another Ravens game, another player lost.

Following Sunday's overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts, the Baltimore Ravens announced on Monday afternoon that the franchise has placed wide receiver Tylan Wallace on Injured Reserve.

Wallace made the initial 53-man roster as the sixth-string wide receiver in a relatively surprising way back then. Of course, after all of the injuries many players have suffered, including wide receiver Odell Beckham, the move ultimately (kinda) paid off.

The Ravens are placing Tylan Wallace on IR in order to create an open spot in their 53-man roster ahead of Week 4 as they needed it in order to bring Josh Johnson, cut last weekend, back to the active roster.

That said, the transaction is related to Week 3 in that Wallace left Sunday's game against the Colts with a hamstring injury having played just 11 snaps throughout the game.

The Ravens were left with only three active and healthy wide receivers for the overtime against the Colts, which they eventually lost 22-19 when kicker Matt Guy hit the game-winning field goal for the goals in a record-breaking play.

Wallace, a former fourth-round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens, is now in his third NFL season. This year was crucial for him and making the initial NFL roster was a huge first step toward solidifying himself as a pro player. That, sadly, is looking ominous following this news.

Last season was meant to be a time for the team to assess Wallace's abilities, but he had a slow start, managing only 21 yards in the first six games. An injury sidelined him for most of the season.

Wallace ended the year with a total of 33 receiving yards. In his first two NFL seasons combined, he has only amassed 56 yards, so it's fair to say that it was a miracle for him to make the initial 2023 cut.

Kudos to Wallace for fighting for his place. We can only hope he makes it back to the field soon enough!
