The Baltimore Ravens defeated the AFC North rival Cincinnati Bengals 34-20 in a game that saw multiple big-name players deal with potentially troublesome injuries.
Thursday night’s game got off to an auspicious start when Ravens tight end Mark Andrews went down with an ankle injury on the game’s opening possession.
Andrews taken down with a hip-drop tackle by Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson. As Wilson landed on the back of Andrew’s legs the tight end’s ankle could be seen bending at an awkward angle.
Shortly after this, Ravens fans were given a scare when quarterback Lamar Jackson remained on the turf following a tackle with an ankle issue. Jackson was checked out in the blue medical tent before jogging off the injury and proceeding to return to the game on the next Ravens possession.
The Bengals did not benefit from the same amount of luck after Joe Burrow picked up a hand injury in the second quarter, however. Burrow had been dealing with a wrist injury and appear to tweak the problem after being hit on a passing play.
