Lamar Jackson (ankle) will miss his third straight game in Week 17.
Though the Baltimore Ravens gave it until 90 minutes before kickoff, the belief heading into the Rams game was that Tyler Huntley was the likely starter, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported early Sunday morning, per a source.
Jackson, listed as questionable with an ankle injury, is officially inactive. After being limited on Wednesday, the Ravens' star quarterback missed practice on Thursday and Friday.
