Ravens Insider: Ravens TE Mark Andrews has ‘best showing so far’ on Tuesday ahead of Texans playoff showdown


Recommended Posts

Mark Andrews broke from the line during quarterback drills, sped downfield, quickly cut to the outside and leaped into the air, snagging a pass from Lamar Jackson before getting both feet down in bounds along the left sideline. That was the scene toward the end of Tuesday’s Ravens practice, which was held indoors after several inches of snow fell overnight at the Owings Mills facility.

“I think today was his best showing so far,” coach John Harbaugh said of Baltimore’s star tight end. “He took a big step. That’s encouraging. We’ll just have to see how it goes.”

Though Andrews, who is two months removed from ankle surgery, was limited, his sight wasn’t the only welcome one for the Ravens. Wide receiver Zay Flowers (calf) and outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (ankle) also returned to practice Tuesday, four days ahead of Baltimore’s divisional-round playoff game against the Houston Texans on Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium.

Flowers, the team’s leading receiver, missed the regular-season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago and sat out practice all of last week. Oweh left the Ravens’ Jan. 6 loss to the Steelers with an ankle injury and also did not practice last week.

Both were limited Tuesday, as was linebacker Malik Harrison (groin).

Meanwhile, wide receiver Devin Duvernay (back), who was placed on injured reserve early last month but was designated to return last week, was back and a full participant. But cornerback Marlon Humphrey (calf), linebacker Del’Shawn Phillips (shoulder) and wide receiver Tylan Wallace (knee) did not practice.

For the Texans, fullback Andrew Beck (back), guard Dieter Eiselen (illness), defensive end Jerry Hughes (ankle), defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins (ribs), tackle Laremy Tunsil (rest) and guard Shaq Mason (rest) did not practice on Tuesday.

Seven others were limited for Houston, including defensive end Will Anderson Jr. (ankle), linebacker Denzel Perryman (ribs), defensive end Jonathan Greenard (ankle), defensive tackle Maliek Collins (hip), linebacker Blake Cashman (knee) and wide receivers John Metchie III (foot) and Robert Woods (hip).
