BALTIMORE -- Poe, the Baltimore Ravens' beloved mascot, was back on the football field Sunday night after suffering a season-upsetting injury in the preseason.

Poe had been placed on injured reserve after he suffered a knee injury during an exhibition game and was carted off the field.

The mascot was injured while performing halftime entertainment at Saturday's preseason game between the Ravens and Washington Commanders.

A tackler pulled Poe down from behind while he was carrying the ball. 

In his absence, mascots Edgar and Allan stepped in to fill the void.

The mascot's names honor legendary Baltimore author Edgar Allan Poe, whose poem "The Raven" is the team's namesake. 

Poe celebrated with his brothers on the sidelines after ditching his wheelchair and leg cast.

Poe's triumphant return Sunday night might have been shadowed by a last-minute comeback by the Steelers, dealing Baltimore a crushing loss.
