Beckham and Harbaugh downplayed the severity of the injury and hoped to get additional time to rest and heal.
Beckham suffered an ankle injury earlier this season that he said sapped some of his explosiveness. Over the last three games, he has scored touchdowns in consecutive weeks and now has his highest production to date. The Ravens will need more of that from him and others with Andrews out.
“I definitely think there are guys in that receiver room that can play, but there’s never a replacement,” Beckham said. “It’s not even about what Mark does (statistically); it’s just who he is as a person for this team.”
Jackson completed nine different passes Thursday night, and that trend will likely continue. Tight ends Charlie Kolar (a 13-yard reception) and Isaiah Likely saw a total of three targets, while Baltimore’s wide receivers had 14 targets, led by Beckham’s seven.
“It’s definitely something we’re going to have to fill,” Harbaugh said. “Maybe it’s like sand or water (where) everyone will have to fill that hole and just smooth it out, and that’s what they’ll do.”
