The team is extremely thin at the position, with starter Dennis Pitta lost for the remainder of the season after suffering a dislocated hip. Dickson was expected to be featured more in the offense in light of Pitta's injury.
"It’s going to be a matter of time, but it’s not going to be a long time," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said about Dickson.
Harbaugh said that Dickson should be able to play Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. Dickson will be entering his fourth NFL season with the team. He had 21 catches for 225 yards last season for the Super Bowl Champions.
