Sam Koch of Owenks Mills-Baltimore Ravens, Maryland, was added to the reserve/COVID-19 roster on Wednesday, putting his 15 consecutive years of game record in jeopardy.
The source told ESPN that Koch was refused to participate in Wednesday’s practice after the latest COVID-19 test returned uncertain. Since being selected by the Ravens in the sixth round in 2006, he has not missed a game, and he has set a league record for 239 consecutive games.
Further testing will determine how long Koch will be away.
A few days before the finals of the Cincinnati Bengals finals for the Ravens, Koch may suffer losses. Baltimore (10-5) can win the pass berth by defeating Cincinnati.
If Koch is not there, kicker Justin Tucker may replace him. Tucker averaged 40.5 yards per game on 155 punts in Texas.
Another problem is that Koch is the holder of extra points and shooting percentage. Mark Andrews at the tight end served as the holder in the training camp.
