Reports: Ravens Pro Bowlers Mark Andrews, Matt Judon Latest to Test Positive for COVID-19



Steelers Ravens TE Mark Andrews

Baltimore starting tight end Mark Andrews and starting outside linebacker Matt Judon are the latest Ravens players to test positive for COVID-19, according to reports Sunday morning by Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Andrews and Judon, both 2019 Pro Bowlers, will miss the Ravens game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday.

He has 60 targets this season and came down with 38 catches for 454 yards and six touchdowns, leading the Ravens in all four receiving categories.

Backup Nick Boyle suffered a season-ending knee injury two weeks ago, so the Ravens will be forced to lean on practice squad tight ends Sean Culkin and Eric Tomlinson.

Judon is the third Baltimore outside linebacker on the COVID-19 list. They have recently acquired starter Yannick Ngakoue to man one side and fourth-year backup Tyus Bowser for the other side, with no linebackers on the practice squad.

When Andrews and Judon area officially placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, they will make 22 Ravens player on the list, joining the following:

CB Khalil Dorsey
CB Iman Marshall
CB Tavon Young
DE Calais Campbell
DE Jihad Ward
DT Justin Madubuike
DT Broderick Washington
DT Brandon Williams
FB Patrick Ricard
G D.J. Fluker
G Will Hoden
G/C Patrick Mehari
G/C Matt Skura
LS Morgan Cox
OLB Jaylon Ferguson
OLB Pernell McPhee
QB Lamar Jackson
QB Trace McSorley
RB J.K. Dobbins
RB Mark Ingram II

Not all of those players have tested positive, but Schefter reports that 11 have. Some are close contacts of positive cases. Most players will have to remain on the list for at least five days, meaning some that were placed on the list early in the week have the ability to come off before Tuesday’s game.

Additionally, eight Baltimore staff members have tested positive.
