Baltimore Ravens Quarterback Jackson Ruled Out for Week 15

The Baltimore Ravens will be without their superstar passer for at least another week. The team officially declared quarterback Lamar Jackson out for Week 15's matchup with the Cleveland Browns, clearing the way for backup Tyler Huntley to get the start.

Jackson has been unavailable since injuring his knee in the Raven's Week 12 10-9 win over the Denver Broncos. Huntley has played competently in his stead, narrowly eeking out a pair of wins while netting 263 passing yards and adding 72 rushing yards on 19 attempts.

The Ravens play on Saturday, so this injury report is their last of the week. Huntley suffered a concussion in the team's Week 14 16-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but his lack of an injury designation indicates he is fully recovered and should be good to go against the Browns. The 9-4 Ravens need to keep pace with the 9-4 Cincinnati Bengals over the next few weeks, or they risk losing the AFC North.

Huntley joined the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2020. His struggles in relief of Jackson undid a promising 7-5 start in 2021 for the Ravens; Huntley lost three of his four starts, and the Ravens narrowly missed the playoffs.
