SALT LAKE CITY – Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced that Lamar Jackson has been ruled out for Week 16 and former Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley will start for the third straight game.

Harbaugh shared the news on Thursday, December 22.

Huntley has started Baltimore’s last two contests in place of an injured Jackson. The former NFL MVP is currently dealing with a knee injury that he suffered against the Denver Broncos on December 4.

Ahead of the Week 16 start, Huntley was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday with a right shoulder injury.

Huntley left early in his first start of the season and entered concussion protocol. The injury did not prevent him from playing in Week 15.

In three games played this season, Huntley has thrown for 413 yards and two interceptions with a 70.3 percent completion rate. He’s also run the ball 25 times for 87 yards and a touchdown.

During Huntley’s first two starts, the Ravens went 1-1. In his last start, the Ravens fell to the Cleveland Browns, 13-3. Huntley went 17/30 passing for 138 yards and an interception.

The Ravens sit in second place in the AFC North division with a 9-5 record this season.

Baltimore’s next game is at home against the Atlanta Falcons on Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24 at 11 a.m. (MDT). The game will be broadcast on FOX and NFL Sunday Ticket.
