Ravens’ Lamar Jackson inactive, Tyler Huntley to start vs. Rams
Baltimore’s Tyler Huntley will start Sunday’s game against the visiting Los Angeles Rams after the Ravens listed fellow quarterback Lamar Jackson as inactive.
Jackson had been listed as questionable despite sitting out the team’s last two practices this week.
The 2019 NFL MVP had been sidelined since he injured his ankle on Dec. 12 in a 24-22 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
Huntley came off the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday and returned to practice. He started Baltimore’s 31-30 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Dec. 19 before Josh Johnson found himself under center in the Ravens’ 41-21 setback to the Cincinnati Bengals last Sunday.
Huntley, 23, has thrown for 743 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in parts of five games this season. He has rushed for 168 yards and two scores for the Ravens (8-7), who aim to snap a four-game losing skid on Sunday against the Rams (11-4).
Wide receivers James Proche II and Miles Boykin, linebackers Pernell McPhee and Odafe Oweh, guard Ben Powers and cornerback Anthony Averett were also listed as inactive for Baltimore.
