Bad news for Hayden Hurst as the first round selection from South Carolina is expected to miss the start of his first NFL season.

This news was first reported by Mike Garafolo of NFL Media. According to Garafolo, Hurst has a stress fracture in his foot. He is expected to miss three to four weeks. The Ravens regular season starts Sunday, Sept. 9 against the Buffalo Bills — which is 16 days away.

Hurst was the No. 25 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft after catching 100 passes for 1,281 yards and three touchdowns for the Gamecocks in his three years in Columbia. Outside of being one of Jake Bentley’s favorite targets during his time in South Carolina, Hurst was noted as an outstanding blocker in both the run game and in pass protection.
