Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is considered week-to-week after suffering a knee injury against the Denver Broncos, head coach John Harbaugh announced Monday.

Harbaugh added that it's "less likely" that Jackson will play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"It's going to be a weekly thing," Harbaugh said. "As the week goes on, we'll see for this week. He's probably less likely for this week, but it's not impossible, and then after that, it will become more and more likely."

Jackson appeared to sustain the injury on a sack by Broncos defensive end Jonathan Cooper late in the first quarter. He was examined in the medical tent before heading to the locker room and did not return to the game.

Tyler Huntley stepped in at quarterback, leading the team on a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. He ran in the final touchdown with 28 seconds left.

Harbaugh expressed faith in Huntley on Monday.

"The players have a lot of confidence in him," Harbaugh said. He added, "He's probably going to take most of the reps this week. ... He's a player that's got a lot of dynamics to his game."

Huntley, 24, started four games for the Ravens last year. Since entering the league in 2020, he has 1,641 total yards and six touchdowns.
