The Ravens’ offense struggled in the first half on “Thursday Night Football,” and Lamar Jackson was without his top receiving option for the rest of the contest. 
Tight end Mark Andrews left in the second quarter with a shoulder injury. The team first announced that Andrews was questionable to return and then said later that he was out.
After a Week 7 performance with no catches, Andrews had two for 24 yards within the first two plays of the Week 8 game. But he and Jackson connected just once after that. Andrews left the game with three catches for 33 yards.
