Update (3:00 p.m. ET): Head Coach John Harbaugh confirmed on his Monday press conference that Odell Beckham and Odafeh Oweh have avoided long-term injuries while not providing any further update or giving more information away. The coach pointed reporters to the next Injury Report (to be released next Wednesday) and will only offer any extra update if a Ravens player is moved to IR.

The Ravens went to the Jungle on Sunday and came out alive and well after beating the Bengals 27-24 on the road and earning a 2-0 record in the first two weeks of play.

Baltimore didn't escape Ohio unscathed, though, as they lost veteran wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to an ankle injury midway through the first half.

OBJ was ruled out of Sunday's matchup at Cincinnati after skipping a few offensive snaps in the first half. He was seen doing some stretching and jogging on the sidelines after that, per Clifton Brown of BaltimoreRavens.com.

Before getting removed from the game, Beckham was good to grab three passes from Lamar Jackson on his way to racking up 29 yards against the Bengals, a team he beat the last time he played on the road in Super Bowl LVI and won the title.

Speaking at the podium after the game, head coach John Harbaugh gave Ravens fans good news by announcing that he doesn't believe either of those are serious injuries. Harbaugh was referring to OBJ and Odafe Oweh's injuries, the latter also missing many snaps Sunday.

"I don’t think it’s serious injuries for either person," Harbaugh said. "We’ll learn more tomorrow."

Beckham's injury could have happened with 5:16 left in the first quarter, per C.J. Doon of The Baltimore Sun. According to Doon, Beckham caught a pass at that moment, made a quick cut, and was tackled by Bengals cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt after gaining 15 yards. Beckham "got up favoring his lower left leg" but remained in the game. He missed the first few plays in the next offensive possession.

While missing those snaps, Beckham "remained on the sideline with his helmet on" and he "attempted to stay loose by running in place." Then, he returned to the field "with 13:35 left in the second quarter," before being ruled out in the second half.

Beckham returned to the sideline after the break "in street clothes" and was out for the remainder of the Ravens victory over the Bengals.

It's worth noting that Beckham has had his fair share of ankle issues in the past. He first injured it when he suffered an ankle fracture in 2017 leading up to season-ending surgery.

Just last week, Beckham was listed in the Ravens injury report with an ankle injury three days before the season opener against Houston, although he was removed from it quickly without much trouble. He played a week ago and caught two passes for 37 yards in his debut clad in Ravens' threads.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is expected to hold a press conference on Monday in which he will offer more details about possible injuries and some timelines about the recovery times for Beckham and Oweh. If that's not the case, the franchise should at least release a report later today.
