According to The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec, the Baltimore Ravens could start Robert Griffin III on Sunday. Starter Joe Flacco is battling a hip injury.

If head coach John Harbaugh goes with the veteran over the rookie, then Griffin III would get the start. Griffin III reportedly even outplayed Jackson, the team’s first-round draft pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, despite Jackson being the No. 2 quarterback in dual-quarterback packages.
