Tyler Huntley, for all of his athletic gifts, is no Lamar Jackson. Nobody is.
His Baltimore Ravens teammates know that. But it won't stop them from believing in their backup quarterback during a pivotal stretch run as they sit atop the AFC North, with a rivalry matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers on deck.
"They see him practice every day, they see how hard he works, and they know he’s talented," head coach John Harbaugh said Sunday. "So, he’s the guy, and that’s it."
Jackson, who did not practice Wednesday, will be sidelined with a knee injury that ESPN reported is a PCL sprain. Huntley came in for Jackson to start the second quarter against the Denver Broncos last Sunday and led a game-winning 16-play, 91-yard touchdown drive – capping it with a two-yard touchdown rush with 28 seconds remaining.
Huntley finished 27-of-32 through the air with an interception and added 41 yard rushing yards on 10 attempts.
