Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh is hopeful that tight end Mark Andrews’ ankle injury may not be as serious as originally thought, following the team’s win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Initially believed to be season-ending, the severity of Andrews’ injury is now less certain.
Andrews has been a key player for the Ravens this season with 45 catches for 544 yards and six touchdown receptions, making him one of Lamar Jackson’s top options.
The Ravens are eager for Andrews’ return if he is able to come back from the injury.
Harbaugh stated, “Nothing’s completely definitive yet, but my understanding is, in talking with our trainer and the doctors, is that it wasn’t as bad as initially feared right after the game. It’s a little cleaner than they thought, based on the MRI.”
He also mentioned that Jackson’s ankle injury seems to be minor, and there is hope for cornerback Marlon Humphrey’s return this weekend against the Los Angeles Chargers.
