Huntley Tosses TD Pass After Replacing Jackson During Ravens/Browns Game
SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes and current Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley threw a touchdown pass after replacing former MVP Lamar Jackson during Baltimore’s loss to the Cleveland Browns.
The Browns hosted the Ravens on Sunday, December 12.
Early in the second quarter, Jackson sustained an ankle injury and exited the game on a cart. He was initially ruled as questionable to return. In the second half, Baltimore announced that Jackson would be out for the remainder of the game.
With 1:17 left in the fourth quarter and the Ravens down 24-15, Huntley threw an eight-yard pass into the end zone for Mark Andrews.
