The Ravens will call on another quarterback to support Lamar Jackson.
Trace McSorley was placed on the injured reserve with a knee injury sustained in Monday night’s win over the Cleveland Browns.
With veteran Robert Griffin III (hamstring) already on the injured list, undrafted rookie Tyler Huntley is next in line to become the No.2 quarterback. The Utah product has been part of the ‘training team all season and has been active for one game, but did not take a blink.
Being placed on the injured reserve means McSorley will miss the last three games of the regular season. He had seen action the past two games, relieving Griffin in the second half against the Pittsburgh Steelers and relieving Jackson on Monday night after going to the locker room with cramps in the fourth quarter.
McSorley was injured when his knee bent as he attempted to make a cut in a third race. Jackson rushed onto the field and into the next play and completed a 44-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Brown on the fourth down, which helped Baltimore to the victory.
McSorley saw his first game this season after spending his rookie season in 2019 as a No.3 quarterback. The Penn State sixth-round pick completed three of 10 passes for 90 yards and a touchdown. He joined Brown on a 70-yard touchdown in Pittsburgh.
In other line-up moves, two players were dropped from the practice squad – running back Tommy Bohanon and defensive tackle Braxton Hoyett.
