Huntley is now the father of a baby boy named Tyler Jr.

“It’s a life-changing moment,” Huntley told reporters. “It’s just love to see life being brought into this world.”

The former Ute missed Baltimore’s practice on Thursday to experience the birth of his son.

“Huntley joked that he’s going to start working on Junior’s throwing as soon as he can grip a football. He’s already bigger than his papa was, born at a sizeable eight pounds, 12 ounces,” Ryan Mink and Clifton Brown of BaltimoreRavens.com reported.

The Ravens currently own a 10-3 record and sit in first place in the AFC. Baltimore is tied for the league’s best record alongside the San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, and Philadelphia Eagles.

This season, Huntley has thrown for 38 yards and one touchdown on 5/8 passing. He’s also run six times for a total of 16 yards in three games played.

Baltimore’s next game is on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, December 17 at 6:20 p.m. (MT) on KSL 5 TV.
