The Ravens are down to Josh Johnson as the only healthy quarterback on their roster, so they are making a last-minute move to add a backup ahead of Sunday’s game against the Bengals.

According to multiple reports that PFT has confirmed, the Ravens are signing Kenji Bahar to their practice squad. Bahar will be elevated to the active roster in order to give the Ravens a second quarterback for their divisional clash in Cincinnati.

Bahar spent time with the Ravens in training camp this summer and appeared in one preseason game for the team. He had two rushing attempts that lost three yards. He played his college football at Monmouth.

The Ravens find themselves in this predicament because Lamar Jackson is out for the second week in a row with an ankle injury and Tyler Huntley went on the COVID-19 reserve list on Saturday.

  1. If they postponed games last week, why wouldn’t they postpone the Ravens game with 22 guys on IR and 11 guys on Covid ? Just curious as to what rationale and objective reasoning is used by the NFL in the decision making ? Playing this game is equivalent to giving the Bengals a victory by forfeit when just one week ago they rescheduled numerous games. It seems purely subjective.

  2. I don’t even recognize this 2021 team anymore. I don’t expect a win, I’m just hoping for a decent game at this point.
