TE Mark Andrews - Limited

Tight end Mark Andrews suffered a quad injury during a pregame practice all the way back on Aug. 21st. He never graced the training field since then, missing six consecutive practices leading up to this week, just mere days before the season opener against the Texans on Sunday.

Andrews made his comeback on Wednesday after head coach John Harbaugh revealed on Monday that was the exact timeline for the TE to make his return to training. However, Andrews has been "limited" in practicing for the past two days.

The favorite target of Lamar Jackson wasn't as sure as to give 100% to his availability for Sunday's opener, but Andrews said "God willing, I'll be out there," per

Andrews stated that he's taking his recovery "day by day" and "doing his thing." The tight end also revealed that he suffered the injury "during practice" and admitted he just doesn't know how to "throttle down," as quoted by Ryan Mink of

If Andrews cannot play Sunday, then it'd be TE2 Isaiah Likely and TE3 Charlie Kolar taking snaps in his place. That'd be no good news for the Ravens, though.

You just saw what happened to the reigning champions when opening the 2023 NFL regular season against the Detroit Lions, led by QB Patrick Mahomes but missing TE Travis Kelce.

The Texans aren't an otherworldly team or anything remotely approaching that, but not having Andrews on the field would definitely hurt the Ravens' offensive upside mightily.
