The Baltimore Ravens will have to take on the No. 1 team in the NFC without star quarterback Lamar Jackson, as the former NFL MVP is inactive for Sunday's meeting with the Green Bay Packers due to an ankle injury.  

Jackson left last week's 24-22 loss to the Cleveland Browns in the second quarter due to the ankle injury, and was carted to the locker room. It was initially thought he had a high ankle sprain, but head coach John Harbaugh said on Monday that it was actually a low ankle sprain. While this was relatively good news, Jackson still didn't practice all week and was officially listed as questionable.

Tyler Huntley will start in place of Jackson. It will be his second start of the season, as he completed 26 of 36 passes for 219 yards and an interception in a win over the Chicago Bears in Week 11 while Jackson was out due to an illness. At one point down 24-3 against the Browns last Sunday, Huntley rallied the Ravens to cut the deficit to two points before they turned the ball over on downs with one minute left in the fourth quarter. He completed 27 of 38 passes for 270 yards and one touchdown, and rushed six times for 45 yards.

Baltimore will likely need an incredible performance from Huntley if it wants to upset Aaron Rodgers and Co., as the Ravens will have to find a way to replace their leading passer and rusher.
