The Baltimore Ravens will take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round of the AFC playoffs. This will be the third matchup between these teams this season, including the regular season finale in Week 18 that saw the Bengals win 27-16. Injuries continue to mount up for the Ravens' offense. Backup quarterback Tyler Huntley wasn’t seen throwing on Wednesday and is still dealing with right shoulder tendonitis.

Tyler Huntley injury updates

Sunday, Jan. 15 update — Huntley and Anthony Brown will both be used in Sunday’s Wild Card game, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It remains to be seen if Baltimore is hoping that Brown can be used in some rushing packages or if this is an effort to limit Huntley’s reps due to the injury to try and keep him healthy for a playoff run.

Friday, Jan. 12 update — Huntley was able to get in a full practice on Friday, but is listed as questionable. All signs point to him starting with Lamar Jackson out this weekend.

Friday, Jan. 12 update — Huntley said in a press conference Friday that he estimates that his shoulder is about at 90%, per ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. He said that he is a game-time decision for the game Sunday, so will likely head into the weekend with a questionable status.

Thursday, Jan. 12 update — Huntley was seen throwing in the portion of practice open to the media, per Jeff Zrebiec. This is a positive update that could lead to his being able to play this weekend against the Bengals.

Wednesday, Jan. 11 update — Huntley was officially listed as limited in practice due to shoulder and wrist injuries.

Wednesday, Jan. 11 update — Huntley is not throwing at the portion of Wednesday’s practice that was open to the media, per ESPN’s Jamison Hensley.

Fantasy football advice

Huntley has played in six games for Baltimore. He is completing 67% of his passes for 658 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. Huntley hasn’t captured the success that he has had previously filling in for Jackson. He has yet to play the Ravens this year, but with Jackson still missing from practice, he could be the starting quarterback on Sunday. Huntley missed the regular season finale, and it was third-stringer Anthony Brown that was under center in the losing effort. When it comes to fantasy football or DFS, try and find a better, more reliable option than Huntley.
