Ravens activate three more players off of Reserve/COVID-19 List

The Baltimore Ravens continued to get healthier on Wednesday following their 34-17 drubbing of the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday night. They activated a pair of 2019 Pro Bowlers from the Reserve/COVID-19 List in tight end Mark Andrews and outside linebacker Matthew Judon as well as offensive tackle Will Holden.

Andrews and Judon are starters and will be returning to the active roster while Holden will revert back to the practice squad.

The Ravens had placed 23 players on the reserve list at one point due to the outbreak that ran ramped through the organization and now they are down to just three.

Veteran wide receiver Willie Snead IV, rookie safety Geno Stone and injured cornerback Terrell Bonds as the only players on the list with Dez Bryant expected to join them after testing positive just before the Cowboys game.

Having Judon and Andrews back in action will provide the Ravens with a huge boost on both sides of the ball as they prepare to travel to Cleveland to take on a confident 9-3 Browns team that is riding a four-game winning streak in a primetime AFC North showdown on Monday Night Football to close out Week 14.

Andrews leads the team in touchdown catches with six and is second in total receptions and receiving yards behind wide receiver Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown with 38 catches for 454 yards.

The 2019 breakout star had one of his best games of the year in the season opener against the Browns where he hauled in five of his six targets for 58 yards and a pair of scores.

Judon is tied with defensive end Calais Campbell for the second-most sacks on the team with four and is one of the most complete and versatile players at his position in the league with the way he excels at stopping the run, rushing the passer, and drop in coverage.

The franchise tagged edge defender recorded four total tackles including one for loss and quarterback hit in the team’s first meeting against the Browns.

Holden appeared and impressed in his first taste of regular-season action before being placed on the reserve list. In 30 snaps against the Tennessee Titans in Week 11, he performed well at right tackle.

He could not only provide quality depth if called up to the active roster again but also factor into the rotation on the right side of the offensive line and particularly at tackle where veteran DJ Fluker and rookie Tyre Phillips have split time at in the Ravens last two games.
