Tyler Huntley clears concussion protocol ahead of Week 15 vs. Browns

We break down the news that Huntley has cleared concussion protocol. What it means for Week 15 and beyond.

Thursday update: Head coach John Harbaugh told reporters on Thursday that Huntley is out of concussion protocol, per Jonas Shaffer. Harbaugh wouldn’t name him the starter, but with Lamar Jackson not practicing this week, it would be extremely surprising if he is not starting come Saturday afternoon.

Wednesday update: Huntley was at practice on Wednesday, per ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. It remains to be seen in what capacity. We won’t know if he was listed as a limited or full participant until the injury report comes out later this afternoon.

The Baltimore Ravens had a quarterback conundrum on their hands heading into a Week 15 showdown Saturday against the Cleveland Browns and it’s the wrong type of conundrum to have. Lamar Jackson was already considered week-to-week with a knee injury that cost him the Week 14 game, and backup Tyler Huntley ended up in concussion protocol. Huntley was estimated to be a limited participant in Tuesday’s walkthrough, but the Ravens have some serious injury issues at the position.

Fantasy football implications for Week 15

Huntley did well in a few games last year filling in for Jackson, but the Ravens really don’t want to have to go to third-string quarterback Anthony Brown at this point in the season. This is a crucial division game Saturday with a lot of playoff implications. Throwing Brown into the mix would be a tough look.

From a fantasy standpoint, this offense takes a big step back without Jackson. It would take another step back if Brown was in for Huntley. We’ll see how the Ravens approach this week but it could be a rough Saturday for Baltimore’s skill players in fantasy football.
