Report: Ravens to play both Huntley, Brown vs. Bengals
The Baltimore Ravens declined to name a starting quarterback Friday and plan to play both Tyler Huntley and Anthony Brown in Sunday's wild-card game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Starting quarterback Lamar Jackson remains sidelined with a PCL sprain that forced him to miss the team's last five games. Baltimore did not elevate practice squad quarterback Brett Hundley for Sunday's game despite listing Huntley as questionable with shoulder and wrist injuries.
The Ravens intend to utilize both Huntley and Brown to challenge the Bengals' defense, Rapoport reports.
Huntley, who joined Baltimore in 2020 as an undrafted free agent, appeared in six games this year. The 24-year-old combined his arm (112 pass attempts, two touchdowns, three interceptions) with his legs (43 rushes, 137 yards, one touchdown) to help Baltimore to a 2-2 record in his four starts.
Brown, 24, spends more time in the drop-back pass game. In his one start this year - a Week 18 loss to the Bengals - the rookie completed 19 of 44 pass attempts for 286 yards and two interceptions. He didn't have a rushing attempt in that game.
