Griffin (thigh) has been waived by the Ravens, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin finished the season on IR, but once he re-proves his health, he'll look to catch on elsewhere. For now, the Ravens' backup QB options behind Lamar Jackson are Trace McSorley and Tyler Huntley.

Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Griffin (thigh) can return from injured reserve next week, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin is eligible to return to practice Dec. 23, and it appears he'll be ready to be activated for the Week 16 matchup against the Giants. With Trace McSorley (knee) moving to injured reserve Tuesday, the Ravens likely will turn to practice squad quarterback Tyler Huntley to back up Lamar Jackson in this Sunday's game against Jacksonville.

Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Griffin (thigh) can return for the Week 16 matchup against the Giants, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin can return to practice next Wednesday, and it appears he'll be ready to resume his backup role in Week 16. The Ravens will have to play this Sunday against the Jaguars without either Griffin or Trace McSorley, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a knee sprain. In turn, they're expected to call up Tyler Huntley from the practice squad to serve as Lamar Jackson's backup.

Griffin (thigh) has been placed on IR.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin thus will miss at least three games, currently leaving Trace McSorley as the Ravens' top available QB. Though the team activated four players from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, franchise signal-caller Lamar Jackson (illness) remains on the list.

Griffin (thigh) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice estimate.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin was forced out of Wednesday's loss to the Steelers with what was originally reported as a hamstring issue. The Ravens are now citing a thigh injury as the reason for the QB's exit. Either way, Griffin's status for this coming Tuesday's game against the Cowboys is worth monitoring, with Lamar Jackson's (illness) availability for the contest not yet clarified.

Trace McSorley replaced Griffin (hamstring) in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to his exit from the game, Griffin completed seven of his 12 passing attempts for 33 yards and a pick, while rushing seven times for 68 yards. Per Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic, Griffin looked "like he was struggling health-wise" on his last drive, with Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com relaying that the QB -- who was subbing in for Lamar Jackson (illness) -- suffered a hamstring injury Wednesday.

The Ravens' scheduled Week 12 game against the Steelers, which Griffin is in line to start, has been moved from Tuesday to Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the third postponement of the game, which follows the placement of multiple Baltimore players on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Griffin is slated to draw the team's start at QB in the contest with Lamar Jackson (illness) unavailable.

Griffin could start at quarterback Sunday against the Steelers after Lamar Jackson tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The status of Sunday's game is in doubt as the Ravens deal with a COVID-19 outbreak among players and staff, but Griffin could serve as the starting quarterback with both Jackson and Trace McSorley unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols. If the Ravens don't take the field Sunday, the club has a short week prior to playing the Cowboys on Dec. 3. Griffin has taken just 17 snaps for Baltimore this year, completing one of his three passes for nine yards and one interception while rushing five times for one yard.

Griffin appeared in seven games in 2019, completing 23 of 38 passes for 225 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He added 20 rushing attempts for 70 yards.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was a serviceable backup to Lamar Jackson, completing over 60 percent of his passes and eating up snaps when games were decided with time remaining. Griffin wasn't quite sharp enough to revive his stock as a potential starter elsewhere, however. He struggled in his lone start, going 11-for-21 passing for 96 yards and a pick. Griffin is under contract through 2020, so he should be expected to reprise his role as the backup this coming season unless Baltimore unexpectedly decides it's comfortable with Trace McSorley as its No. 2 behind Jackson.

Griffin completed 11 of 21 pass attempts for 96 yards and an interception Sunday against the Steelers. He also carried eight times for 50 yards in the 28-10 win.

EDGE Analysis

Griffin struggled to connect with his receivers, completing just over half his passes while averaging 4.6 yards per attempt. He did his best Lamar Jackson impression as a runner, however, and gashed the Pittsburgh defense for 6.3 yards per carry. Griffin also took three sacks and turned the ball over once, so, despite the victory and flashy rushing stats, it wasn't exactly an ideal performance. The veteran will return to the bench during the postseason and should see the field again only in the event of a blowout or an injury to Jackson.
