Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley practiced Tuesday, two days after a big hit knocked him out of the team’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol, coach John Harbaugh said.
Huntley’s participation in Tuesday’s walk-through, which the team estimated to be limited, could bode well for his chances of playing Saturday against the Cleveland Browns. The Ravens could also again be without starter Lamar Jackson (knee), who didn’t practice Tuesday.
Harbaugh declined after practice to speculate on whether Huntley could play Saturday. Players returning from a concussion have to be cleared by their team’s physician as well as an unaffiliated neurological consultant.
Huntley left the Ravens’ 16-14 road win in Pittsburgh midway through the third quarter, after Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick delivered a shoulder-to-shoulder hit that knocked Huntley back.
Jackson, meanwhile, missed his fourth straight practice since being knocked out of the Ravens’ Week 13 win over the Denver Broncos. Harbaugh said Monday that he didn’t know whether Jackson could play Saturday.
The Ravens’ only healthy quarterbacks are undrafted rookie Anthony Brown, who went 3-for-5 for 16 yards against Pittsburgh, and veteran Brett Hundley, who joined the practice squad last week.
Wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (lilness), defensive lineman Calais Campbell (rest) and cornerback Marcus Peters (rest) also did not practice Tuesday. Offensive tackles Morgan Moses (knee) and Ronnie Stanley (rest), guard Kevin Zeitler (knee) and punter Jordan Stout (right knee) were estimated to be limited.
