The Ravens are dealing with an injury that could prove catastrophic for their offense. Quarterback Lamar Jackson has been carted to the locker room after suffering an ankle injury.
Jackson was injured in the second quarter after completing a pass to Mark Andrews. The Ravens’ quarterback was hit low by Browns linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and was down in pain after the play.

Jackson was helped to the sideline and entered the blue medical tent to receive treatment, and he was carted to the locker room shortly thereafter. He was sitting in the front of the cart with a dejected look on his face.
The Ravens announced that Jackson was dealing with an ankle injury. They originally deemed him “questionable” to return to the game but later ruled him out.
INJURY UPDATE: When will Derrick Henry return?
Tyler Huntley replaced Jackson at quarterback following his injury. Huntley is a second-year pro who played collegiately at Utah and made one start for the Ravens against the Bears earlier this season. Huntley went 26 of 36 passing for 219 yards and an interception in a 16-13 Ravens win.
The Ravens have only two quarterbacks on their active, game-day roster, so if Huntley gets hurt at any point, the Ravens will have to turn to their emergency quarterback, punter Sam Koch, to lead the team’s offense.
