Ravens TE Mark Andrews, RB Gus Edwards missing for second straight day of practice – The Denver Post


With tight end Mark Andrews and running back Gus Edwards missing their second straight day of practice Friday, the Ravens could be without two of their top weapons in Monday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

Andrews (knee/shoulder) and Edwards (hamstring) both left the Ravens’ win last week over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with injuries and didn’t practice Thursday. The team will practice again Saturday before leaving for New Orleans.

Andrews leads the team in receiving yards (488) and receiving touchdowns (five), while Edwards is averaging 4.9 yards per carry and is the team’s highest-graded running back, according to Pro Football Focus. If neither can play Monday, the Ravens will turn to rookie Isaiah Likely at tight end and Justice Hill and Kenyan Drake at running back, all of whom have had solid years.

Also missing Friday was cornerback Marcus Peters, who was limited Thursday with quadriceps and knee injuries and normally gets a rest day during the week of practice.

Left tackle Ronnie Stanley, defensive lineman Calais Campbell and outside linebacker Justin Houston all returned after getting Thursday’s session off.
