Huntley was 8/12 passing for 88 yards before leaving the contest. He also ran the ball nine times for 31 yards.
The former Ute replaced former Lamar Jackson in the starting lineup.
Jackson, a former NFL MVP, is reportedly currently dealing with a sprained PCL, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Ravens starting quarterback suffered the injury during the first half of Baltimore’s Week 13 win over the Denver Broncos. Baltimore listed Jackson as “doubtful” to play against Pittsburgh on its injury report earlier in the week.
Ahead of his projected first start of the season, Huntley spoke about the opportunity.
“The more reps, the more confident a person feels,” the former Utah star said. “That plays a lot into it.”
