It appears that the Baltimore Ravens will now be without their top TWO quarterbacks until further notice after the latest news on Robert Griffin III.

According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Ravens have placed RG3 on injured reserve, sidelining him for the next three games. The Ravens backup QB got the start on Wednesday against the Steelers, but was pulled with a thigh injury.

Wednesday was Griffin’s second start since 2016. But he went just 7 of 12 for 33 yards and an interception before getting hurt.

Starting in Robert Griffin III’s place will no doubt be Trace McSorley, who had two completions for 77 yards and touchdown against the Steelers. McSorley is in his second NFL season and had never thrown a pass before Wednesday’s game.

With starting QB Lamar Jackson still on the shelf for an unknown period of time, McSorley will be called upon to lead the Ravens into the playoffs. At 6-5, McSorley is going to need to play some great football over the next few weeks.
