Word has broke that backup QB Trace McSorley suffered only a knee sprain on Monday night. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Penn State product will be considered week-to-week on the injury report.

Unfortunately, the knee injury is still serious enough for the Ravens to place him on injured reserve. This is the second Ravens backup quarterback to be placed on injured reserve. McSorley joins Robert Griffin III, who was placed on injured reserve following a hamstring injury in Week 12.

It’s not often that a player twists his knee up on poor turf and comes away with their ligaments intact.

As McSorley headed into the locker room, it’s nice to know he was able to catch the ensuing play, which happened to be a 44-yard touchdown pass from Lamar Jackson to Marquise Brown on 4th & 5.

Hopefully the league does something about the poor quality of the Browns’ field, seeing as one player suffered a knee injury and many other players stumbled and slipped throughout the game.

In other news, the Ravens have activated WR Dez Bryant to the active roster.

He is eligible to play against in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-12).
