With Ravens QB Lamar Jackson on the sidelines, Tyler Huntley starts in the regular season finale vs. Steelers – Boston Herald

With Pro Bowl quarterback Lamar Jackson on the sidelines this week in practice, backup Tyler Huntley will start the Ravens’ regular season finale Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, coach John Harbaugh announced Friday.

Huntley’s fourth career start will be the most important in his young career. After losing five games in a row, the Ravens need a win over the Steelers in Baltimore and assistance from across the AFC to get their fourth playoff appearance in a row.

Harbaugh did not have an update on Jackson, who missed training on Wednesday and Thursday with a right ankle injury and has not appeared in a fight since Week 14, where he was run off the field in a loss to the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 12. Friday’s training was moved indoors and closed to journalists according to the NFL’s coronavirus protocols.

Jackson, who never missed a game due to an injury before this season, will now likely end the year after missing four in a row. An illness also put him on the sidelines in Week 11, when Huntley started his first career in a win over the Chicago Bears.

“He wants to be out there every time,” Huntley said Friday about Jackson. “When he’s in the locker room, it’s so hard not to see him go out there and be amazing as he used to be.… I can not wait for ‘L’ to get better.”

Huntley, who has 1-2 as a starter, has completed 67.5% of his passes in 940 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions this season. He has also added 35 carries for 222 yards and two touchdowns.
