BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Ravens backup QB Trace McSorley will be out for “a few weeks” after sustaining a back injury Saturday, Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday.
McSorley reportedly said he had back spasms after picking up a box. Harbaugh said it turned out to be “an issue” and that he “wrenched it in some way.”
Tyler Huntley will enter the season as Lamar Jackson’s backup QB.
