Report: McSorley's knee injury not season-ending

Ravens

Trace McSorley's knee injury appears to not be as serious as initially perceived. 

The Ravens' backup quarterback is believed to have suffered a knee sprain late in Baltimore's 47-42 win over the Browns Monday night. He will have an MRI Tuesday, but the injury does not appear to be season-ending, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley

McSorley entered the game in the second half Monday night to replace Lamar Jackson, who went to the locker room to deal with a case of cramps. He then got injured on a run with two minutes left in the game, so Jackson came back, tossed a 44-yard touchdown to Marquise Brown and set up Justin Tucker's game-winning field goal. 

Limping his way back to the locker room, McSorley made sure to celebrate Brown's long touchdown.

If McSorley isn't able to play in Week 15 against the Jaguars, practice squad quarterback Tyler Huntley is expected to be elevated to the active roster. Robert Griffin III, who started against the Steelers in Week 13 while Jackson had COVID-19, continues to deal with a hamstring injury. 

The Ravens (8-5) are still fighting for a spot in the AFC playoffs with three games left. At 8-5, they sit in eighth place in the conference but hold a tiebreaker over two of three teams in front of them in the wild card standings
