REPORT: 3Detroit Lions key players miss week 11 due to…

Other players who are fully medically cleared to play include starting right guard Nate Davis (ankle), starting fullback Khari Blasingame (concussion), starting running back Khalil Herbert (ankle/shin) and backup cornerback Terell Smith (mononucleosis).

Head coach Matt Eberflus said that Herbert will be activated from injured reserve on Saturday, meaning he’ll be ready to go on Sunday. Eberflus said Herbert has looked strong in practice, but that the team still needs to discuss whether or not he’ll be on a pitch count because he hasn’t played since Week 5.

Eberflus also said earlier this week that Davis will return to right guard and that Teven Jenkins will slide to left guard, where he played a bit earlier this season. Lucas Patrcik will remain at center, meaning Cody Whitehair is the odd man out on the offensive line and will head to the bench.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said after Thursday night’s game that tight end Mark Andrews was likely out for the season after suffering a leg injury during the first half.

There’s no more clarity on the nature of the injury.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, an MRI revealed Andrews suffered a cracked fibula and an ankle ligament injury.

It’s a similar injury to what Cowboys running back Tony Pollard suffered on a similar hip-drop tackle during last season’s playoffs. The league has considered banning the style of tackle.

In 10 games this season, Andrews caught 45 passes for 544 yards with six touchdowns.

The Ravens also have Isaiah Likely and Charlie Kolar at tight end on the active roster with Travis Vokolek on the practice squad.

Starting middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds managed to squeeze in a limited practice on Friday after not participating in eight-straight practices due to a knee injury. Eberflus said he looked good moving around and the team likes where he’s at. Edmunds is questionable to play on Sunday, but the team may need him to return this week since backup middle linebacker Jack Sanborn is also questionable to play with an illness.

D’Onta Foreman is also questionable to play with an ankle injury. Foreman was in obvious pain after the Bears’ Thursday night win against the Panthers last week. He was one of the best performers on offense for the Bears as the fill-in starting running back while Herbert was hurt.

Finally, linebacker Noah Sewell was ruled out with a knee injury. Sewell has been a key special teams player for the Bears this year and has mixed in a little bit on defense.
