Ravens Tight End Avoids Serious Injury

The Baltimore Ravens took home a big win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football, sending their record to 5-3 on the young season, and with all the good news happening as of late, it's hard to think about just how hard the team was hit by injury during that win. Running back Gus Edwards is questionable for Week 9 with a hamstring injury and Rashod Bateman is now out for several weeks with a foot injury, but thankfully for Baltimore, their star tight end Mark Andrews has avoided any serious injury after he too left the game.

According to John Harbaugh, Andrews is just dealing with some shoulder and ankle injuries, and while it's not clear yet whether he will miss a game or two to recover from them, the team has announced that he hasn't suffered an injury that would be considered worthy of Injured Reserve. In Andrews absence, rookie tight end Isaiah Likely stood up to haul in 6 catches for 77 yards and a Touchdown, so if he were to miss a game, the Ravens have a more than solid backup plan.

Right now, Baltimore just need to get healthy if they are going to make a big run in the AFC in 2022, and with Andrews and Likely at the tight end spot, they have arguably the best group in the NFL which should be solid for years to come.
