The Baltimore Ravens topped the Cincinnati Bengals tonight to move to 8-3 on the season. Still, the victory over the Bengals didn’t come without a steep price. Star tight end Mark Andrews was in a lot of pain after a tackle by Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson on the game’s opening drive on Thursday night.
Andrews was on the ground in pain for a while before eventually limping off the field with the Ravens training staff. Andrews eventually went to the locker room with the trainers to be further evaluated. He was ruled out of the remainder of the game with an ankle injury a short time later and seen outside the X-ray room on crutches, unable to place any weight on the injured ankle.
Ravens GM Eric DeCosta was seen delivering news of Andrews’ status to some Bengals players on the sideline, which made the injury seem pretty serious at the moment.
After the game, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh confirmed that belief: “Unfortunately, on the negative side, Mark Andrews has a very serious ankle injury. It looks Iike a season-ending injury. So our prayers will be with Mark.”
Losing Mark Andrews for the season is a significant loss for the Ravens. Andrews is a key component in Baltimore’s offense. Andrews has 43 catches for 521 yards and six touchdowns this season.
Baltimore will also be monitoring wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who left tonight’s contest in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury.
