Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is unsure whether star tight end Mark Andrews will be able to face the Houston Texans in Saturday’s divisional round game.
Andrews was feared to have suffered a season-ending injury in November, when he fractured his fibula and sustained ligament damage in his left ankle during a 34-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
However, Andrews – a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft – returned to training for the first time since sustaining the injury this week.

He has been officially listed as questionable for Saturday’s divisional round game against the Texans, who posted a crushing win over the Cleveland Browns – and their former Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco – in the wild-card round last week.
Asked after Thursday’s practice session whether Andrews could be involved at M&T Bank Stadium, Harbaugh said: “Mark is still up in the air.”

While Andrews is hopeful of being involved, he is confident the AFC’s top seeds will advance and give him future opportunities to feature this postseason, should he fail to make Saturday’s game.
“It’s how I feel at the end of the day,” he said. “Just knowing how good this team is, how good our players are, how good our tight ends are, if I feel like I’m going to be helpful to the team, I’m going to go.
“If I feel like I’m close but not there, I’ll let these guys go and hopefully get next weekend.”
