Officially, the Ravens say quarterback Lamar Jackson has a chance to play today despite the ankle injury that kept him out of practice most of the week. But more likely, Tyler Huntley will start against the Rams.

Jackson may see what he can do in pre-game warmups, but the expectation is that Huntley will start against the Rams, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

That’s not a big surprise, as Jackson was limping on the practice field Wednesday and then didn’t even take the field at all during practice Thursday or Friday. Jackson hasn’t played and has barely practiced since injuring his ankle on December 12 against the Browns.

The good news for the Ravens is that Huntley has played well, showing he’s a far better quarterback than NFL evaluators expected when he went undrafted in 2020. The Ravens need Huntley to step up in a big way today, as they’re fighting for their playoff lives.

  1. With Lamar’s lack of mobility Huntley is the right choice. He’s played well, but the game will be determined based on the play of the Ravens patchwork defense. Few teams have had the injury impacts as the Ravens.

  2. Huntley almost knocked the Bills off and took the Ravens to the AFCCG in one quarter of play off the bench last year.

  3. Well since they are not technically out of it then it makes sense for them to start the best QB on their roster

  4. This is my shocked face. Anyone really think Huntley wasn’t going to start today?

    Coaches really think they are smarter than they are. Many instances already this year where it would take a medical miracle for guys to play and they list them as questionable for weeks.

  5. I love Lamar. I think the world of the young man. But at this juncture, coach needs to play the hot hand. Lamar’s confidence has been shattered and he needs to get to OTA’s and camp to start fresh. Sadly, I think Huntley will be starting for a new team next year. He’s another good egg, and deserves the opportunity to shine, even if it’s not in Baltimore.

  6. Baltimore = The Land where running qbs go to die in the NFL

    What a waste of time. Gimmick QBs do not work.

  7. I watched Huntley against my Packers. He scares the living bejesus out of me. I think he’s a better running threat QB than Lamar. And his passes were on the spot. Give the kid some extended experience and coaching,… he can be a starter in this league for some team.
