Griffin (thigh) has been waived by the Ravens, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Griffin finished the season on IR, but once he re-proves his health, he'll look to catch on elsewhere. For now, the Ravens' backup QB options behind Lamar Jackson are Trace McSorley and Tyler Huntley.
Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Griffin (thigh) can return from injured reserve next week, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports. Griffin is eligible to return to practice Dec. 23, and it appears he'll be ready to be activated for the Week 16 matchup against the Giants. With Trace McSorley (knee) moving to injured reserve Tuesday, the Ravens likely will turn to practice squad quarterback Tyler Huntley to back up Lamar Jackson in this Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Griffin (thigh) can return for the Week 16 matchup against the Giants, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports. Griffin can return to practice next Wednesday, and it appears he'll be ready to resume his backup role in Week 16. The Ravens will have to play this Sunday against the Jaguars without either Griffin or Trace McSorley, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a knee sprain. In turn, they're expected to call up Tyler Huntley from the practice squad to serve as Lamar Jackson's backup.
Griffin (thigh) has been placed on IR. Griffin thus will miss at least three games, currently leaving Trace McSorley as the Ravens' top available QB. Though the team activated four players from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, franchise signal-caller Lamar Jackson (illness) remains on the list.
Griffin (thigh) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice estimate. Griffin was forced out of Wednesday's loss to the Steelers with what was originally reported as a hamstring issue. The Ravens are now citing a thigh injury as the reason for the QB's exit. Either way, Griffin's status for this coming Tuesday's game against the Cowboys is worth monitoring, with Lamar Jackson's (illness) availability for the contest not yet clarified.
