The Ravens placed McSorley on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. McSorley has either tested positive for the virus or come into close contact with an infected person, and he'll need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities. He'll be unavailable for Sunday's game against the Titans, but McSorley typically serves as a healthy scratch anyway, with Robert Griffin acting as Lamar Jackson's backup.
McSorley (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Eagles. McSorley has yet to suit up for a game this season, as he's the clear No. 3 quarterback behind Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin. He likely won't make an appearance unless Jackson or Griffin get hurt.
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.
