All we’ve been hearing about is Mark Ingram’s calf injury and whether he’ll be able to suit up against the Titans. Luckily, we have good news Ravens fans because it looks like Ingram will play. In addition to Ingram’s injury, the Ravens should also have their star TE Mark Andrews on the field as well. Here is the Ravens’ official injury report:
Ravens list RB Mark Ingram (calf) and TE Mark Andrews (ankle) as questionable for Sunday's. Andrews may not be 100 percent, but he'll play. Still not sure on Ingram's status, but Ravens don't have to make that call now.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) January 9, 2020
Andrews was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but he should play as the stakes of tonight’s game outweigh the pain of Andrews’ ankle injury.
The amount of playing time Ingram will receive is unknown. Both Coach Roman and Harbaugh realize that Gus Edwards is fully capable of handling starting running back duties. That being said, expect to see more involvement of Edwards in the offense while integrating Ingram at the same time.
The Titans also have a number of noteworthy injuries. Here is the Titans’ injury report:
For the Titans, WR Adam Humphries (ankle) and LB Jayon Brown (shoulder) are out. WR Cody Hollister (ankle) is questionable.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) January 9, 2020
The absences of wide receiver Adam Humphries and starting linebacker Jayon Brown will prove to be impactful as both players are important pieces to the Titans roster.
The absence of Humphries will give the Ravens’ secondary an easier time. With Humphries out, the defense can focus on taking starting wide receivers A.J. Brown and Corey Davis out of the game.
Wide receiver Cody Hollister is listed as questionable for the game. If Hollister is unable to play, the Titans would be left with a very thin wide receiving core, which puts extra pressure on Brown and Davis to make plays against the Ravens’ stellar secondary.
The Ravens aim to advance to the AFC Championship by overcoming a stingy Tennessee Titans team.
