Trace McSorley started at quarterback for the Ravens in their preseason opener, but he won’t be back on the field in the near future.

McSorley said after Saturday’s game that his back had tightened up on him and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Monday that the issue is going to keep McSorley out of action for a while.

“He was picking up a box or something the day of the game and said he had the back spasms,” Harbaugh said in his press conference. “Turned out to be something in his back, it’s an issue. He wrenched it in some way, so he’s gonna be out a few weeks with that situation.”

McSorley’s injury pushes Tyler Huntley into the No. 2 quarterback spot behind Lamar Jackson. The Ravens also signed Kenji Bahar on Monday to add to the number of healthy quarterbacks available in Baltimore.

  1. No pun intended, I know who will be “running away” with the QB2 position. Trace as a meme was fun while it lasted but the reality of the situation is he doesn’t fit the system and he can’t stay healthy. Huntley is a much better fit for the system. Deal Trace away for a draft pick and all is well.

  2. Actually, McSorley fits the system well and before this back issue his only injury was the knee last year which was unfortunate. He hasn’t missed much time at all since he’s been with the Ravens. However, Huntley has a MUCH better arm as well as being better making things happen when the play/pocket breaks down. Bottom line is Huntley is better. They’ll try and stash him on either IR or practice squad. Nobody is giving them a draft pick for him.
