Sam Koch: Activated from COVID list

Koch is activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday.

Analysis: While it is unclear whether Koch contracted COVID-19, the punter will rejoin the team after missing Week 17's matchup against the Bengals. The 38-year-old will likely return to his punting duties for the wild-card game against the Titans on Sunday.

Sam Koch: Likely out Sunday

Koch (undisclosed) is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Koch does not appear to have tested positive for the virus, so he could be eligible to return in the playoffs. During Koch's likely Week 17 absence, Johnny Townsend plans to punt against the Bengals.

Sam Koch: Heads to COVID-19 list

The Ravens placed Koch on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: Koch either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with someone who did. It's unclear if Koch will be available for Sunday's game against the Bengals. The Ravens don't have a punter on their practice squad, but they could sign a punter off another franchise's practice squad for the season finale. Otherwise, kicker Justin Tucker -- who punted for Texas in college -- could take over as the team's punter.
