Ravens TE Mark Andrews, RB Gus Edwards unlikely to play vs. Saints after missing week of practice – The Denver Post


The Ravens will likely be without tight end Mark Andrews and running back Gus Edwards in Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Saints after both missed their third straight day of practice Saturday.

Neither Andrews (knee/shoulder) nor Edwards (hamstring) has practiced since leaving the Ravens’ win last week over the Buccaneers with injuries. Players who don’t practice during a game week typically don’t play, although Andrews was activated against Tampa Bay despite not participating.

Andrews leads the Ravens in receiving yards (488) and receiving touchdowns (five) and has helped carry their passing offense in the absence of wide receiver Rashod Bateman, who’ll miss the rest of the season with a Lisfranc (foot) injury. Edwards is averaging 4.9 yards per carry and is the team’s highest-graded running back, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Ravens could also be without wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (groin), who was missing at Saturday’s practice after being limited Friday. Robinson had his best game of the season against Tampa Bay, making six catches for 64 yards.

Left tackle Ronnie Stanley and outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul were also absent Saturday. Coach John Harbaugh is scheduled to address reporters Saturday afternoon, and an injury report will be released later.
