The Ravens listed Lamar Jackson as questionable Friday, holding out hope their starting quarterback could play against the Packers. It appears, though, that the Ravens will start backup Tyler Huntley.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Jackson’s availability for Sunday is not looking good.

Jackson sprained his ankle in the loss to the Browns last week, playing only 10 of 74 snaps.

Huntley completed 27 of 38 passes for 270 yards and one touchdown while scrambling for 45 yards on six attempts in Jackson’s stead. He did lose a fumble that Myles Garrett returned for a touchdown.

Huntley has played four games with one start this season, leading the Ravens to a victory over the Bears while subbing for the ill Jackson in Week 11.

The Ravens have a one-game lead in the AFC North.

  1. “Phil Rivers played on a torn ACL.”

    This comparison of injuries needs to stop.

    1. Injuries aren’t comparable, including injuries to the same area. Like anything else, ACL tears vary in severity. For example, Rivers was able to still limp through his ACL and Meniscus tear and play another game. Meanwhile Carson Palmer almost lost his career.

    2. It was a championship game, not regular season, and Rivers had an awful game because of it. 0 tds, 2 ints, just barely over 50% completed. Just off of that alone Lamar should rest.

  2. Lamar Jackson is the Steve Young Incarnate

    Rest up, Big dawg. The play off push will need two wheels ready to gon.

  3. Probably the best decision, Huntley is the better QB. When Jackson gets healthy move him to his correct position, RB.

  4. Lamar needs the rest for the end of season push. If Huntley protects the ball better the Ravens have a chance Sunday.

  5. I have to say as a Packer fan this is a scary game. Historically they don’t do well against mobile QB’s and power run games.

  6. Lamar should just set down until he’s completely healed. There’s no way the Ravens will reach the Super Bowl this year anyway. Might as well see what Huntley can do holding the team together.
