4. Is Mark Andrews trending to return for the Baltimore Ravens?
Mark Andrews has been out since week 10 with an ankle injury. John Harbaugh has been quite optimistic that he will be healthy at some point this year, but we were not sure when. The Ravens opened his practice window last week, but he was not activated.
The Ravens do not have to activate him until Saturday, so it may be in their best interest to make it appear he will suit up only to sit him again. However, the clear indication right now is that he will play this week.
First, he was limited last week, getting some work in. Now, he is practicing in full. Getting the week to adjust last week should mean that even if the Ravens are playing it safe, they feel he is ready to come back this week.
The question is, how does this impact the Baltimore Ravens? Isaiah Likely has been money for them over the last couple of months, but when Andrews is healthy, he is the top option for Lamar Jackson and would be a great mismatch this week.
Do the Ravens lean into more two tight ends, something they have not done much under Todd Monken? How much does Andrews even play? We will find out soon.
