The Baltimore Ravens are extremely shorthanded for Week 12 due to Covid-19, and will be without another playmaker. Tight end Mark Andrews tested positive for the virus and will be placed on the injured reserve list, per Ian Rapoport. He will not be eligible to play on Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Ravens alternatives at tight end include Luke Willson and Eric Tomlinson. The team signed Willson two weeks ago after Nick Boyle suffered a season-ending knee injury.

With 48 hours left until kickoff on the Tuesday game, the Ravens have placed 22 players on the Covid-19 injured reserve list. The starters or key contributors among them include Andrews, QB Lamar Jackson, RBs JK Dobbins and Mark Ingram, OL Matt Skura, DJ Fluker, and Patrick Mekari, DL Brandon Williams, Calais Campbell, and Justin Madubuike, LBs Matt Judos, Pernell McPhee, and Jaylen Ferguson, LS Morgan Cox.
