The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Denver Broncos 10-9 on Sunday to improve to 8-4 on the season.

With that being said, however, the energy in Baltimore this Monday morning is a tad subdued given the uncertain health status of quarterback Lamar Jackson. 

Jackson exited Sunday's contest in the first half after appearing to suffer a knee injury. He did not return to the game and is scheduled to undergo further testing this week. 

With Jackson's status for Week 14 up in the air, Baltimore is reportedly adding depth to their quarterback room today. 

According to NFL insider Ari Meirov, the Ravens have signed Brett Hundley to the team's practice squad.  

"The #Ravens are signing veteran QB Brett Hundley to their practice squad, per his agent Kenny Zuckerman," Meirov tweeted Monday. 

Brett Hundley was selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Green Bay Packers. 

Inactive for his entire rookie campaign, Hundley made his Green Bay debut in 2016. Serving mostly as the Packers' backup and third string quarterback that year, Hundley attempted just 10 passes in his second NFL season. 

A year later, in 2017, Hundley saw his first substantial action when Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury in Week 6. 

As the Packers' starter for the following seven games, Hundley led Green Bay to a 3-4 mark during Rodgers' absence and put together some good, bad, and downright ugly performances. 

Hundley finished two games in 2017 with three or more touchdown passes and zero interceptions. On the opposite end of the spectrum, he also completed two outings where he threw three interceptions without a touchdown. 

Seemingly unimpressed by Hundley's relief efforts in 2017, Green Bay decided against retaining him going into the 2018 season. He bounced around between Seattle, Arizona, and Indianapolis before signing with Baltimore this Monday afternoon. 

The Ravens will travel to Pittsburgh in Week 14 to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
