The Baltimore Ravens came out of their Thursday Night Football game against the division rival Bengals with a huge victory. The win improves their record to 8-3 and solidifies them as one of the top teams in the AFC, but more importantly, widened the gap between them and at least one of the other teams vying for the AFC North crown. But they took a big hit that has a chance to shake up their season during the game, and the news isn’t good on tight end Mark Andrews.

He laid on the ground in obvious, writhing pain as team doctors rushed onto the field, and quarterback Lamar Jackson threw his helmet down in frustration after coming over and checking on his favorite receiver.
There was a glimmer of hope as cameras showed Andrews walking off of the field and into the tunnel under his own power, but he had a pronounced limp and was eventually ruled out of the remainder of the contest.

Unfortunately, on the negative side, Mark Andrews has a very serious ankle injury. It looks like a season-ending injury. Our prayers will be with Mark. Nobody cares more about the team and being there for the guys than Mark…
