The Baltimore Ravens could be without punter Sam Koch during Sunday's Week 17 showdown with the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium for the first time since Koch entered the National Football League in 2006.
On Wednesday, the Ravens placed Koch on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reported via Twitter that Koch had an inconclusive test and missed Wednesday's practice.
Ravens kicker Justin Tucker punted in college at Texas, and Hensley reported that Tucker could fill in for Koch if needed (though Baltimore still would need a holder for Tucker's field-goal and extra-point attempts):
Koch has played in 239 career games - per baltimoreravens.com - surpassing Terrell Suggs (229) and Ray Lewis (228) earlier this season for the most in franchise history.
