NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Oakland Raiders Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens started today’s game against the Vikings down two of its top three receivers as Jeremy Maclin and Breshad Perriman were ruled out, and they now could be without the final member of their top three.

Wallace took this big hit from Andrew Sendejo, and stayed down after the play. The hit from Sendejo came very high, and it knocked off Wallace’s helmet. Wallace’s head then appeared to hit the turf. Unsurprisingly, Wallace was immediately put into concussion protocol.

Update (1:42 p.m.): Wallace has been ruled out for the game. The Ravens wide receiver was arguing with trainers and coaches on the sideline, pleading his case to get back into the game, but it was to no avail.

Wallace did fumble on the hit, however the Ravens got the ball back due to an unnecessary roughness penalty on Sendejo. After the Ravens drive stalled out, Justin Tucker came on for a 48 yard field goal, and made it to give the Ravens a 3-0 lead.

Wallace was able to walk off on his own power, but the hit was awfully scary. The Ravens are now down to just three receivers: Chris Moore, Michael Campanaro and Griff Whalen. This is the worst scenario the Ravens could have hoped for.
