Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he had “no statement” to offer on injured quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley a day after his team beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 16-14, with third tailpiece Anthony Brown finishing the match.
Jackson missed Sunday’s game due to the knee injury he suffered the previous week against the Denver Broncos. His replacement, Huntley, went into concussion protocol after taking a heavy blow in the third quarter. It’s unclear if either will be available for the Ravens’ divisional showdown on Saturday against the Cleveland Browns.
“They’re deep in protocol right now,” Harbaugh said of Huntley. “I really don’t have any updates that I would be allowed to share, so there’s really no statement on that or Lamar in terms of who will be ready or not ready at this point. Until you know it, you can’t say anything.
After the win in Pittsburgh, Harbaugh said Huntley appeared to be doing well and might have time to clear protocol before the Ravens face the Browns. The game could be important for the AFC North race, with the Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals both at 9-4.
Asked specifically about Jackson, who started the first 12 games, Harbaugh said, “I just don’t know. You make some sort of statement, and it turns out you don’t have enough information to make it yet. That’s how these wounds work.
He added that the Ravens would consider having three active quarterbacks against the Browns — Brown and Brett Hundley are behind Jackson and Huntley on the depth chart — to protect against further injury.
Harbaugh also said Kevin Zeitler was a ‘game time decision’ against the Steelers, but the right guard ‘just didn’t feel good enough’ to play due to a forced knee injury. to miss two practices last week.
“It’s not a major injury; it’s just a knee push,” Harbaugh said. “It was just painful, and he tried his best to get to the game.”
