Mark Andrews Injury Update: Ravens star TE expected to sit out NFL season opener vs Texans

Only behind Travis Kelce and George Kittle, the Baltimore Ravens’ Mark Andrews has quietly emerged as one of the league’s top tight ends. He has been rushing ever since being selected in the 2018 NFL Draft, flaunting his magical footwork to the football world.

In spite of missing two games with a shoulder injury, Mark Andrews earned his third Pro Bowl last season. Unfortunately, the star tight end has again become the subject of injury which might lead him to miss their first game of the regular season.

Mark Andrews’ injury update

Mark Andrews is the focal point of Ravens’ TE room without whom the team’s offense will surely be under question. The star player started the season with a quad injury during practice which is obviously a sign of untold suffering for the Ravens team.

Over the previous week, Andrews had to skip six straight practices. Though it’s difficult for the player to throttle down, the Ravens team tried to reach a conclusion about his injury status. Hence, they allowed him to practice on a limited basis, Wednesday through Friday.

The good news for Ravens fans is that the athlete recently provided an update on his injury in which he expressed his desire to recuperate. The tight end appeared to be anticipating a quick return because he was working so hard to make it happen.

“I’m feeling good. I’ve obviously taken some time off and been slowly working back in. It’s been one of those things that’s been a little tricky. But I’m feeling better running around, just day by day getting better and we’ll see what happens.”

The 28-year-old is a dependable red zone player whose 1,062 receiving yards rank eighth in a Ravens single-season record and whose 85 receptions rank fourth.

Mark Andrews to miss out playing vs. Texans

The Baltimore Ravens will play the Houston Texans in their season opener, and the eagerly anticipated matchup is set to begin on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 1:00 p.m. ET at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

Though Andrews’s statement worked as an assurance of his quick return, per Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport, his participation in the game against the Texans was listed as questionable. So, it is safe to say that he won’t play against the Texans.

The injury of Mark Andrews let the Ravens kick-off the season without one of the league’s most versatile players as they take on the Houston Texans on Sunday. Now, Isaiah Likely and Charlie Kolar are the players the team might play as TE in place of Andrews.
