The Ravens got two more starters off the COVID list on Wednesday and one depth offensive linemen as they activated tight end Mark Andrews, outside linebacker Matthew Judon and offensive tackle Will Holden off the list.
The team now has three players left on the COVID list (wideout Willie Snead, safety Geno Stone and cornerback Terrell Bonds), though Dez Bryant announced he’d tested positive for COVID on Tuesday night just an hour before the game.
Andrews is the team’s leading receiver with six touchdowns, and second in receptions and yards with 38 and 454, respectively.
Judon is tied for the team’s leader in sacks with four. He’s made 34 combined tackles and has 17 quarterback hits this season. Without Judon, the Ravens’ pass rush struggled for most of the night against the Cowboys on Tuesday. With him back in the fold, and with defensive linemen Calais Campbell, Brandon Williams, Justin Madubuike and potentially Broderick Washington healthy once again, the Ravens will have their pass rush at full strength.
Holden rotated in at right tackle with D.J. Fluker against the Titans and will provide tackle depth for a team that played rookie Tyre Phillips at tackle on Tuesday.
The Ravens’ COVID outbreak, which was one of the worst in North American sports, appears to be nearing its end. Of course, Bryant’s positive test has thrown a brand new wrinkle to the situation.
