Baltimore received some good news on the QB front ahead of Saturday’s matchup against the Browns. Ravens’ reserve passer Tyler Huntley will be available for the division rivalry.
Huntley was forced out of action last week after suffering a concussion. With starter Lamar Jackson already out, that put the Ravens behind the eight-ball under center.
Despite the injuries, Baltimore pulled out a 16-14 win over the Steelers, who were also without their starting QB for the majority of the contest. Mitch Trubisky came in to replace Kenny Pickett and swiftly threw three picks.
With the injury concerns, Baltimore was in danger of having to start third-string signal caller Anthony Brown this weekend. NFL insider Ari Meirov reported on Thursday that Huntley has been cleared to play versus Cleveland.
Ravens QB Tyler Huntley has cleared concussion protocol, which should put him on track to play on Saturday vs. the Browns.
Huntley has proven himself as a player in this league over the last few seasons. In a reserve role last year, he threw for over 1,000 yards and ran for nearly 300 more while making four starts in Baltimore. Unfortunately, the Ravens lost three of those starts (all by three points or less) and eventually missed out on the postseason.
Despite those struggles, the team is undoubtedly better with Huntley under center. At least until Lamar Jackson is healthy enough to return to the starting lineup.
Baltimore currently sits in a tie for first place in the AFC North with the Bengals at 9-4. The Ravens need to win without their MVP passer, and Tyler Huntley certainly gives them the best shot.
