Ravens place punter Sam Koch on Reserve/COVID-19 list originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Ravens punter Sam Koch was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, the team announced. 

According to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley, Koch’s test today came back inconclusive. He was absent from practice. 

Koch, who is the team’s punter and holder, not being in the lineup Sunday in Cincinnati would present the Ravens with some difficulties, as they’d need to replace kicker Justin Tucker’s holder, as well as their own punter. 

No one else has handled punting duties for the Ravens this season, and they do not have a kicker or a punter on the team’s practice squad. Tucker punted in college at Texas from 2008-2011, but has never attempted a punt in the NFL.

It’s unclear who the Ravens would have handle the punting or holding duties, though Tucker and tight end Mark Andrews figure to be the likely candidates.
