Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews has been designated to return from injured reserve ahead of the 2024 NFL Playoffs. Andrews has been on IR since Week 11, where he suffered a cracked fibula and ankle ligament damage in their Thursday night victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on November 16.
NFL Playoffs 2024: Ravens first-round bye
Mark Andrews injury updates
Friday update: Andrews officially returned to practice on Friday and was seen warming up.
This is an ideal spot for him to return to action considering that the Ravens have a first-round bye and will not be playing until next weekend’s Divisional round. That gives Andrews plenty of time to ease his way back onto the field and re-assimilate himself into the offense.
The All-Pro was productive through 10 games prior to being placed on IR. He caught 45 targets for 544 yards and six touchdowns, which he still ended up being tied for second-most TD’s among tight ends this year. His return should add extra juice for a rested Baltimore offense for next week’s Divisional Round.
