Ravens tight end Mark Andrews is having surgery today on his high-ankle sprain, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media. Dr. Robert Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist, is performing the surgery in Charlotte. Andrews is likely out for the remainder of the year, with a chance of returning if Baltimore makes a deep playoff run. Coach John Harbaugh left the door open for that possibility, stating that the injury wasn’t as bad as initially feared and there is some optimism.
Andrews injured ligaments in his ankle and cracked his fibula on a tackle by Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson. The Ravens will look to Isaiah Likely and Charlie Kolar to step up in Andrews’ absence. Andrews has had a successful season, with 45 receptions for 544 yards and six touchdowns. He has also made the Pro Bowl for the past two seasons.
