SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes and current Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley is day-to-day with shoulder and wrist injuries but is progressing in his recovery ahead of Super Wild Card Weekend of the NFL Playoffs.

After not throwing in practice on January 11 and the week before Baltimore’s regular-season finale, Huntley threw passes on Thursday, January 12.

“He’ll throw as much as he’s ready to throw from one day to the next,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Wednesday. Harbaugh added that Huntley was “on schedule” in his recovery.

After throwing in practice, Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman said that Huntley “looked good.”

“It’s day-to-day. He’s making progress,” Roman said of the former Ute. “We take stock on it every day.”

Huntley was sidelined in Week 18 because of the injury.

His recovery is key to Baltimore’s potential playoff success as the Ravens will be without former NFL MVP Lamar Jackson during the opening round of the postseason. Jackson, who has played in over a month, detailed his knee injury in a tweet on January 12.

“There is still inflammation surrounding my knee and my knee remains unstable,” Jackson wrote. “I wish I could be out there with my guys more than anything, but I can’t give a 100% of myself to my guys and fans. I’m still hopeful we have a chance.”

Before missing the regular season finale, Huntley had started four consecutive games for the Ravens. On December 4, Huntley replaced Jackson after he suffered a knee injury during Baltimore’s win over the Denver Broncos.

During his five games played this season, Huntley has helped the Ravens to a 3-2 record, including 2-2 in starts.

He’s thrown for 658 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in 2022. Huntley has also run the ball 43 times for 137 yards and a touchdown.

The Ravens finished the regular season in second place in the AFC North division with a 10-7 record.

Baltimore’s Wild Card game will be on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, January 15 at 6:15 p.m. (MDT). The game will be televised on KSL 5 TV.
