UPDATE: Head Coach John Harbaugh announced after the game that Mark Andrews will likely miss the rest of the 2023 season.
Mark Andrews went down in a heap of pain seven plays into a much-hyped game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Players from both teams immediately waived Baltimore’s medical personnel onto the field, while Lamar Jackson was seen throwing his helmet in frustration. Andrews was quickly ruled out with an ankle injury.
Andrews entered Week 11 leading all tight ends with six touchdowns. He also paces the Ravens in touchdown catches, yards per game (57.9) and first down receptions (26). Additionally, he ranks second on the team in catches (43) and receiving yards (521) behind Zay Flowers. Andrews had two catches for 33 yards against the Bengals before departing, including a nine-yard reception near the goal line that led to a Gus Edwards touchdown.
The Pro Bowl tight end is a key cog in a Baltimore offense that ranks fifth in offensive DVOA and 10th in pass DVOA. He’s also a valuable blocker in the Ravens league-leading rushing attack (154.9 yards per game).
Isaiah Likely replaces Andrews as the team's top tight end. Likely has only nine catches for 89 yards on the year, though he caught 36 passes for 373 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie last season.
