The Baltimore Ravens remain atop the NFC North thanks to a decisive 27-22 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football. It was a game that saw three of Baltimore's most impactful offensive players get hurt, though, and head coach John Harbaugh was quick to provide updates.
Baltimore Ravens Injury News
Harbaugh was adamant that neither tight end Mark Andrews' or wide receiver Rashod Bateman's injuries are considered serious. Meanwhile, clarity on running back Gus Edwards' hamstring injury will come later. All three players were questionable prior to Thursday night before being ruled active.
Mark Andrews Injury Update
Andrews got off to a hot start, hauling in 3 of his 5 targets for 33 yards. He ended up leaving the game in the second quarter with a shoulder injury, which is completely unrelated to the knee injury that has hampered him for a few weeks. Rookie Isaiah Likely stepped up in his place with a touchdown grab.
Rashod Bateman Injury Update
Bateman is in a different boat than Andrews is. The second-year pro tweaked a foot injury that has sidelined him at times this season. He tried to give it a go in the second half, but was ultimately ruled out. Veteran Demarcus Robinson took on a bigger role with 64 yards on 6 receptions (8 targets).
Gus Edwards Injury Update
Edwards was utilized sparingly on offense throughout the game before limping to the sideline in the fourth quarter with a hamstring issue. It's a bit concerning given he only returned to the field in Week 7 after serving time on the injured reserve recovering from a torn ACL. Keep an eye out for updates.
With 10 days in between games, all three players have a realistic shot at suiting up when the Ravens face off against the New Orleans Saints in Week 9. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds currently lists Baltimore as a 3.5-point road favorite with -162 moneyline odds in that cross-conference matchup.
