Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday that tight end Mark Andrews has an “outside chance” to play again this season after tests showed his ankle injury was not as severe as initially feared, Childs Walker of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Andrews was injured by a hip-drop tackle from Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson on the Ravens’ first drive last Thursday. Harbaugh said after the game the injury was serious and likely season-ending.

“Nothing’s completely definitive yet,” he said Monday. “My understanding is, in talking with our trainer and doctors, that it wasn’t as bad as initially feared right after the game. … It’s a little cleaner than we thought based on the MRI. He’s going to be involved with Dr. [Robert] Anderson down there in Charlotte over the next few days, and we’ll know more.”

Harbaugh declined to say when Andrews might have a chance to return under the most optimistic scenario. “I don’t want to say that it’s definitive by any stretch, but there is some optimism,” he said.

In the absence of Andrews, their leader in touchdown catches and receptions for first downs, the Ravens will turn to second-year tight ends Isaiah Likely and Charlie Kolar and also ask more of their wide receivers.

“I have total confidence in those guys,” Harbaugh said of Likely and Kolar. “They’re going to get in there and get their shot and do a great job with it. … When [Mark] gets back, we’ll just be that much stronger for it, whenever that is.”

Harbaugh didn’t want to characterize Andrews’ mood regarding the injury. “There’s no bigger competitor,” he said. “Nobody wants to be out there more than Mark Andrews.”
