In a strange Wednesday afternoon game, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III was taken out in the second half with a hamstring injury. He injured his hamstring on a second quarter scramble, as he helped lead the Ravens down the field to end the half.
Normally the backup, Griffin was forced into starting action due to a positive COVID test from last year’s MVP Lamar Jackson. Jackson is expected to be ready for next Tuesday’s matchup with the Cowboys, but if not it would be on second year quarterback Trace McSorley to take over the starting job.
Ravens officially rule Robert Griffin III out (hamstring). Seems McSorley the likely QB2 next week if Jackson is back to face the Cowboys
McSorley, the Penn State product, entered the game in the fourth quarter and did throw a 70 yard touchdown pass to Hollywood Brown. Still, he looked far from comfortable out there, and barely earned his roster spot back in 2019.
The odds are Lamar Jackson will be ready to go for this week’s game, but if not, the Ravens will be in a tough position at quarterback for Tuesday night.
