Cracked Fibula Couldn’t Keep Andrews Down
After suffering a cracked fibula during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, it seemed like Mark Andrews would be out for the season. However, the Baltimore Ravens’ tight end made a surprising return to practice on Friday, sparking hope among fans and teammates.
The Door is Wide Open
Coach Harbaugh had initially described Andrews’ ankle injury as “very serious,” casting doubt on his return. But with his return to practice, the Ravens have opened his 21-day window to return from injured reserve. The door that seemed closed is now wide open, and Andrews is ready to make his mark once again.
A Key Player’s Absence
Despite Andrews’ absence, the Ravens managed to win six consecutive games, securing the top seed in the AFC and a first-round bye. Isaiah Likely, who filled in for Andrews, performed admirably with 21 catches, 322 yards, and five touchdowns. However, the team is eager to welcome back their 2021 All-Pro tight end.
Potential Pro Bowl Contender
Prior to his injury, Andrews was having an exceptional season with 43 receptions, 521 yards, and six touchdowns in just nine games. His outstanding performance put him on track for one of the best seasons of his career. Despite the setback, there’s no doubt that Andrews would have made the Pro Bowl for the fourth time.
Looking Ahead to the Playoffs
The Ravens now eagerly await their opponent for the divisional round. As the AFC’s top seed, they will face the lowest seed remaining after this weekend’s games. With Andrews back in the lineup, Baltimore is poised to make a strong playoff push and continue their success.
