Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews suffered a quad injury in the offseason that sidelined him for Week 1. Will he play in Week 2?

Andrews missed the Ravens' season-opener against the Texans due to a quad injury. Good news for Ravens fans: it looks like he's coming back.

The veteran tight end logged limited practices this past Wednesday and Thursday but recorded his first full practice on Friday. This bodes well for his status on Sunday when the Ravens take on their AFC North rivals, the Bengals, at Paycor Stadium at 1:00 p.m. E.T.

Andrews' imminent return could give Lamar Jackson the best receiving corps he's ever had in his NFL career, as Jackson will look to spread the ball around to Andrews, Odell Beckham Jr., Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman, and others.

Here's the latest update on Mark Andrews' status for Week 2.
