McSorley appeared in one game as a rookie, taking one carry for one yard. Veteran Robert Griffin was entrenched as the backup quarterback, leaving little room for McSorley to even be active most weeks. McSorley had a chance to see some action in the season finale against Pittsburgh when Lamar Jackson was inactive, but he only played one snap. With Robert Griffin under contract for another season, McSorley has his work cut out for him in terms of remaining on the 53-man roster, especially if Baltimore opts to carry just two quarterbacks.
Coach John Harbaugh said both Robert Griffin and McSorley could play in Sunday's game against the Steelers. McSorley -- a sixth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft -- has yet to make his regular-season NFL debut. However, the Ravens have locked up the No. 1 playoff seed in the AFC, so likely MVP Lamar Jackson, among other top players, will get a week of rest. McSorley played four preseason games, completing 56.7 percent of passes for 533 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.
McSorley is inactive for Sunday's season opener against the Dolphins. McSorley won't play a role in Baltimore's offense Week 1 with Robert Griffin set to serve as the top backup to Lamar Jackson. The rookie sixth-round pick impressed down the stretch in the preseason, but he lacks a clear path to rise above the QB3 gig.
McSorley completed 15 of 27 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 20-7 preseason win over Washington. He added eight yards on two carries. McSorley continued his steady improvement throughout the preseason, completing his second consecutive game without a turnover all while making some big throws, including a 24-yard shot to Jaleel Scott to give Baltimore a second-quarter lead. His frenetic style makes him a nice option to develop as Lamar Jackson's backup, but, given Jackson's own inexperience, it would be foolish to look anywhere else outside of Robert Griffin for the top backup job. McSorley figures to be destined for the practice squad or, at best, QB3.
McSorley completed 19 of 28 passes for 203 yards and two touchdowns while adding six rushing yards and a touchdown on four carries in Thursday's 26-15 preseason win over the Eagles. McSorley played the first three quarters of a game that was shortened due to lightning early in the fourth, and he put in a strong audition for slotting behind Lamar Jackson with Robert Griffin sidelined by a thumb injury. The 2019 sixth-rounder led a trio of second-quarter touchdown drives, taking it himself from four yards out before finding Michael Floyd for a 28-yarder and finally hitting Jaleel Scott for a seven-yard score seven seconds before halftime. McSorley didn't use his legs much outside of the touchdown run, but his 30 rushing scores in 46 college games suggest that he has a sizable running element to his game.
