Ravens HC John Harbaugh announced Saturday that sixth-round S DeShon Elliott suffered a fractured forearm during their third preseason game.
“I don’t know what that means, the entire season or part of the season,” Harbaugh said, per Jamison Hensley.
Elliott could be a candidate to open the season on injured reserve, depending on how much time he’s slated to miss with this injury.
Elliott, 21, was selected in the sixth round of this year’s draft by the Ravens. He signed a four-year, $2,617,800 contract with the Ravens and is set to make a base salary of $480,000 for the 2018 season.
During his college career at Texas, Elliott recorded 105 tackles, 11.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, nine interceptions with two being returned for touchdowns, 13 pass defenses, three fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles over the course of three seasons and 26 games.
