McSorley looks like the best bet to back up Lamar Jackson, but he isn't someone who should be rostered in any format unless Jackson suffers a significant injury.
General manager Eric DeCosta expects McSorley (knee) and Tyler Huntley to compete for the backup quarterback job this offseason, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official site reports. "We think both [McSorley and Huntley] have a legitimate chance to compete for that backup position," DeCosta said. "It doesn't mean that we won't go after a veteran quarterback, but we think both those guys have pretty bright futures, and we see a good competition this year." McSorley saw action in two games for the Ravens in 2020, providing a spark in each. He suffered a minor knee strain back in December, but he's expected to be ready for the tentative start of offseason activities later this year.
Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that McSorley's knee sprain should take about three weeks of recovery, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports. McSorley is apparently dealing with a minor knee sprain, but his IR placement will require him to miss the rest of the regular season. Meanwhile, Robert Griffin (thigh) is on track to return from IR for the Week 16 matchup against the Giants. Tyler Huntley is expected to be brought up from the practice squad to serve as Lamar Jackson's backup until Griffin returns.
McSorley (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. McSorley suffered a minor knee sprain in Monday's 47-42 win over the Browns, and he'll be required to sit out for the rest of the regular season. In the meantime, practice squad quarterback Tyler Huntley should serve as Lamar Jackson's backup until either McSorley or Robert Griffin (hamstring) is activated from IR.
McSorley is believed to have suffered a knee sprain in Monday night's win over the Browns and will undergo an MRI to confirm, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. McSorley went down awkwardly trying to run for a first down Monday and was forced to leave the game. The belief is that McSorley's injury is not season-ending, but that won't be known for certain until the results of the MRI are revealed. Baltimore already has Robert Griffin (thigh) on injured reserve, so the team's depth behind Lamar Jackson would be in an untenable situation if McSorley is unavailable for even one game.
McSorley left Monday's game against the Browns due to a knee injury, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. McSorley tried to take it himself for a first down late in the fourth quarter, but his knee appeared to buckle and he went down in pain. Luckily for the Ravens, Lamar Jackson trotted out of the locker room almost immediately after and was able to come back into the game.
