The Baltimore Ravens improved to 8-3 and dropped the Cincinnati Bengals to 5-5 after a 34-20 win during “Thursday Night Football” to kick off Week 11 in the NFL.
There were two big pieces of injuries news to come out of that game. First, Ravens tight end Mark Andrews is likely done for the season with an ankle injury. The Bengals are hoping for the best after Joe Burrow had to leave the game with a wrist injury in the second quarter. (The NFL is investigating why Burrow was not on the pre-game injury report.)
Heading into Sunday, we know the Cleveland Browns will turn back to Dorian Thompson-Robinson at quarterback against the Pittsburgh Steelers after the news that Deshaun Watson’s season is over with a fracture in his throwing shoulder.
Thompson-Robinson’s first NFL start came Oct. 1 against the Ravens, a 28-3 defeat where he went 19-for-36 with 121 passing yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions.
“I know what to expect now,” Thompson-Robinson said Thursday. “I’m not stepping out there for the first time — not going out there wide-eyed anymore.”
The Browns are working out Joe Flacco on Friday as they look to add to their quarterback room.
Justin Fields (thumb) is expected to start for the Chicago Bears after missing four games when they face the Detroit Lions.
“It’s not 100 percent, but it feels good. There’s still a little bit of healing left, but it’s stable,” Fields said.
In other thumb injury news, Matthew Stafford went through a full practice Thursday and is expected to start against the Seattle Seahawks. He injured it Oct. 29 against the Dallas Cowboys, but thanks to the Rams’ bye week he only missed one game.
Keenan Allen, meanwhile, will play for the Los Angeles Chargers when they take on the Green Bay Packers, but he will suit up while dealing with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder. The 31-year-old wide receiver suffered the injury during a tackle in the fourth quarter of their Week 10 loss to the Lions.
Here is the rest of the Week 11…
