Hayden Hurst’s rookie season never got off the floor after a Jones fracture in his foot sidelined him four games to start the season.
The Baltimore Ravens first-round tight conclusion compiled only 13 receptions for 163 yards and one touchdown as the foot injury set back him and nagged the whole campaign.
Offseason questions about durability persisted this spring when the Ravens held Hurst from some OTAs due to a tweak.
??? Team matches for top remaining FAs
??? Ranking deepest place groups

??? NFC West primer: Camp queries ??? Rank: Could Redskins surprise?
After rejecting the notion that he might be suspicious heading toward coaching camp, Hurst told 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore on Wednesday he’s"good to go" once camp begins on July 24.
“Kind of felt it all last year, was not actually at 100 per cent," Hurst said. “Clearly, you kind of have the aches and pains of a twist being in your own foot. But I am good to go today, all wholesome, don’t feel it and feel 100 percent"
The 25-year-old second-year participant said he gained 15 pounds of muscle this offseason, hoping to play in the 260-pound range rather than the 247 he had been last season when he felt like he was"getting pushed around a little bit."
Hurst said he considers the weight increase his production on the field but also will not just help him remain healthy.
“I simply feel powerful. When I’m in and out of cuts and men are on me at the top of my paths, I am able to get separation better," he informed 105.7 The Fan. “Obviously I am ready to maintain the point of attack better blocking and stuff, so that’s going to be enjoyable. I’m just excited. It is likely to be a really good year."
