John Harbaugh Announces Update On Lamar Jackson, Ravens' Quarterback Situation

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh has an update on quarterback Lamar Jackson after he suffered a knee injury in the first quarter of Week 13 and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. 

And it's probably not the injury report he hoped for.

Harbaugh confirmed on Friday backup quarterback Tyler Huntley will likely be the starter against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

Jackson has a sprained posterior cruciate ligament, which typically keeps players sidelined for one to three weeks. 

Harbaugh's hope was for Jackson to play Week 14.

"We'll see if he can go back this week," Harbaugh said after the Week 13 win. "If not, he'll be sometime after that shortly."

Huntley stepped in for Jackson when the Ravens were down 3-0. In his first game of the season, Huntley led the Ravens to a 10-9 victory over the Denver Broncos. He went 27-for-32, throwing for 187 yards and zero touchdowns and rushing for 41 yards and one touchdown.

He orchestrated a 91-yard touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter to upend the Broncos and improve the Ravens to 8-4.

Ravens-Steelers kicks off in Pittsburgh at 1 p.m. Sunday.
