More quarterback woes for the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14: Tyler Huntley had to exit the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third quarter.

On a third-down, Huntley absorbed a big hit from Steelers’ Minkah Fitzpatrick and went into the blue medical tent. The referees threw the flag for an unnecessary roughness penalty, but the damage was done — Huntley spent some time in the tent before reportedly heading to the locker room.

In his first start of the season, Huntley put together a solid performance through two and a half quarters, recording 88 passing yards and 31 rushing yards. He didn’t throw a touchdown, relying instead on J.K. Dobbins to spearhead the rushing attack.

In Huntley’s place, UDFA rookie Anthony Brown will play in his first game in the NFL.

Brown was elevated to the active roster ahead of Week 14’s matchup as the sole backup behind Huntley. Brown had gone undrafted after playing quarterback for the Oregon Ducks for one season in 2021, throwing for 2,989 yards and recording 19 touchdowns against seven interceptions.

With Huntley questionable to return, Brown will take his first ever NFL snaps under center against a tough Steelers defense in a pivotal divisional matchup.

Following Jackson’s injury the week prior, the Ravens have been at the mercy of fate when it comes to their quarterback room in the second half of this season.
