Injury-marred rookie season
Kolar played in two games as a rookie and recorded four receptions for 49 yards on six targets.
The fourth-round selection out of Iowa State had his rookie season thrown off kilter by a sports hernia that required surgery during the preseason. He did not see his first game action until Week 17 but managed to make an impact in the regular season finale against the Bengals with four grabs for 49 yards. Fair or not, Kolar will be compared to fellow rookie tight end Isaiah Likely as they were drafted in the same round and both are competing to be the top tight end behind Mark Andrews. Kolar gets an incomplete grade for his rookie season due to the injury while Likely became a reliable part of the offense. If the offense does not change in 2023, Kolar could take over the role occupied by Josh Oliver provided Oliver is not retained. A less tight end-reliant system could put Kolar in a squeeze for playing time, however.

Inactive versus Bengals
Kolar is inactive for Sunday night's playoff game against the Bengals.
Kolar saw added snaps in the Ravens' regular-season finale last weekend with the team resting Mark Andrews. With Andrews back in the lineup Sunday, Kolar is the odd man out in Baltimore's tight end corps in the team's postseason opener.
Looks good in first extended action
Kolar played 33 of the Ravens' 75 snaps on offense and finished with four catches for 49 yards on six targets in Sunday's 27-16 loss to the Bengals.
After playing just two snaps in his NFL debut in the Ravens' Week 17 loss to the Bengals, Kolar was thrust into a more prominent role in the regular-season finale while top tight end Mark Andrews sat out for rest purposes. Though Isaiah Likely started and stepped in as the Ravens' top option in the passing game (eight catches for 103 yards on 13 targets), Kolar out-produced every other Baltimore pass catcher aside from receiver Sammy Watkins (two catches for 79 yards). While the rookie fourth-round pick out of Iowa State was able to end the regular season on a high note, he'll likely see a steep decline in snaps and could even be a healthy inactive for Sunday's wild-card rematch with the Bengals with Andrews set to return to the lineup.
