The Ravens haven’t had Lamar Jackson at practice the past two weeks. They didn’t have backup Tyler Huntley on Friday.

Jackson continues to rehab his ankle injury, and Huntley sat out Friday’s session with an illness. The Ravens listed both of their top two quarterbacks as questionable.

NFL Media reports that Huntley still is expected to start with a non-COVID illness.

Josh Johnson was the only quarterback at Friday’s practice and would be in line to start if both Jackson and Huntley can’t go.

Jackson has not practiced since injuring his ankle against the Browns on Dec. 12.

On Sunday, Jackson missed the first game of his career due to injury as the Ravens lost to the Packers 31-30. Huntley started and threw two touchdowns and ran for two.

For Sunday’s game against the Bengals, the Ravens figure to be short handed. They have 17 players on the COVID-19 reserve list, including five from the practice squad; and they have one player who won’t play because of injury, and two players who are doubtful.

The Ravens ruled out guard Ben Powers (foot), and list receiver Devin Duvernay (ankle) and offensive lineman Tyre Phillips (knee) as doubtful.

Defensive tackle Calais Campbell (thigh) practiced on a limited basis every day this week. He is questionable.

Offensive lineman Patrick Mekari (hand), outside linebacker Odafe Oweh (illness), fullback Patrick Ricard (knee) and safety Brandon Stephens (illness) are questionable.

  1. I feel like the nail is near the coffin. The amount of players on IR and now with Covid. Just feels like not happening this year.

  2. Josh Johnson…..you gotta love the guy!!!…STiLL playing in the NFL AFTER being on ,like,13 teams!

  3. What will Baltimore do? They’ve cheated for years having a running back listed as the starting QB getting all the protections to his body that that affords (until he unethically pulls the ball down and INTENTIONALLY runs without any pressure). Now the backup starting running back is out.

    Time for the NFL to restrict the QB position to only six rushes per game or you are officially inactive for the next four quarters of play. This will force teams to actually play NFL caliber QB’s instead of gaming the system.

    Also, the NFL needs to end the use of a QB from causing defenders to jump offsides – that is overtly a taunting being committed and should result in a 15 yard penalty and loss of down for that unethical QB play. No one will be more punished than that yutz from Green Bay.

  4. Shucks. I came to see nite2al make another bold “Ravens win!” prediction after being so wrong so often. If he were anywhere near close to being right, the 1972 Dolphins would be crying already.

  5. Focus on stopping Andrews and the QB run, regardless of who starts. Freeman isn’t going to run th egg m to a win. .
