Starter Lamar Jackson was expected to be back in time for the playoff contest between AFC North foes but a lingering knee injury will keep the 2019 MVP off the field for the sixth straight contest. He was ruled out on Friday after missing another full week of practice.
Jackson has missed the team’s last five games, last starting for the Ravens on Dec. 4 in a 10-9 win over the Denver Broncos. Huntley, who played most of that Dec. 4 game, started every game for Jackson before missing the team’s Week 18 contest with a wrist injury.
Brown got the starting nod in that contest – a 27-16 loss to the Bengals, the same team Baltimore faces on Sunday night.
Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics and more
The Ravens, losers of three of their last four games, failed to score more than 20 points in both December and January without Jackson.
They split the season series with Cincinnati, beating the Bengals 19-17 on Oct. 9 at home.
