Koch was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.
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.
Koch (COVID-19 protocol) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Koch's streak of 239 straight games -- the third-longest in NFL history -- will end, as he's set to miss the first game of his career. Johnny Townsend will punt for the Ravens on Sunday.
Koch (undisclosed) is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Koch does not appear to have tested positive for COVID-19, so he could be eligible to return in the playoffs. During Koch's likely Week 17 absence, Johnny Townsend is expected to punt against the Bengals.
The Ravens placed Koch on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.
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.
Koch signed a two-year extension with the Ravens on Thursday.
The 37-year-old spent the first 14 seasons of his career in Baltimore, and he's set to remain there for another two years. Koch has a 39.8-yard net average on 100 punts over the past two seasons.
The Ravens reached a five-year contract extension with punter Sam Koch on Thursday. The deal is worth $16.25 million, which includes a $4 million signing bonus, according to multiple reports.
Koch's net punting average (43.3 yards) led the NFL in 2014 and ranked fourth best in league history. He was a first alternate to the Pro Bowl last season.
The 32-year-old Koch holds the franchise records for consecutive games played (144), gross average (45.0), net average (39.0) and punts inside the 20-yard line (251).
Ravens punter Sam Koch is a likely salary cap casualty, reports ESPN.com. The team can gain $1.6 million in cap room by releasing Koch, who finished 22nd in net punting average (38.9 yards).
