Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley remains in concussion protocol but was spotted at practice on Tuesday. Read on for more curated Ravens news.

Lamar Jackson was absent, as to be expected, but Huntley was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday’s injury report.

Huntley will race against the clock to play on Saturday against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15. If Huntley isn’t ready to go, expect the Ravens to either start Anthony Brown or elevate Brett Hundley from the practice squad.

Here’s what’s trending in Ravens news around the web

Ravens narrowly edge Bengals for AFC North title in recent predictions (Eric Edholm, NFL.com)

With a much easier remaining schedule than their rivals, the Ravens should be able to get the job done this year. Week 18’s matchup against the Bengals could very well decide the AFC North winner, and hopefully Lamar Jackson will be healthy by then.

Edholm writes:

"It says here that the Ravens, with a much more manageable slate, get it done one year after they could not. But just remember how dangerous the Bengals were on the road last year, winning at Tennessee in the Divisional Round and at Kansas City on Championship Sunday. Not taking the division won’t sink them."

Ravens must extend Roquan Smith next offseason (Press Box, Glenn Clark)

“This dude is the dude.”

Given how well Roquan Smith has ingratiated himself in Baltimore, the Ravens should do everything in their power to keep Smith around. Edgar Allen Ro has transformed the Ravens’ defense, which has allowed the second-fewest points per game (13.4) ever since Smith joined Baltimore back in Week 9.

The franchise’s utmost priority, naturally, should be to extend Lamar Jackson. But Roquan Smith is a close second.
