Ravens sign QB Anthony Brown to 53-man roster, promote 2 from practice squad before game vs. Steelers – The Denver Post


The Ravens have signed practice squad quarterback Anthony Brown to their 53-man roster ahead of Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With starting quarterback Lamar Jackson still sidelined by a knee injury, the Ravens needed a backup for Tyler Huntley, who will make his fifth straight start. Brown had been promoted three times from the practice squad, the maximum allotment, meaning he needed to be added to the active roster to play Sunday.

Brown, an undrafted rookie from Oregon, played 23 offensive snaps in the Ravens’ Week 14 road win over the Steelers. He went 3-for-5 for 16 yards after coming on for Huntley, who was sidelined by the NFL’s concussion protocol.

The Ravens also elevated wide receiver Andy Isabella for the second straight week and defensive tackle Rayshad Nichols, who’ll make his NFL debut Sunday. Isabella played eight snaps (three on offense) in the Ravens’ win over the Atlanta Falcons, while Nichols helps the depth of a defensive line that could be without Calais Campbell (knee) against Pittsburgh.
