Former Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley may get his chance to shine this weekend. With the Baltimore Ravens sitting starter Lamar Jackson ahead of the playoffs, McSorley could see his first regular season action of his early career.

Head coach John Harbaugh told reporters that Jackson won’t play in the Ravens’ season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Instead, Robert Griffin III will be the guy under center, and there’s a chance McSorley could take a few snaps, too.

Tuesday, McSorley talked about getting the chance to get on the field for the first time in the regular season. The rookie quarterback says he’s ready for his chance.

“I’m definitely excited, it’s a big opportunity. I just have to be ready,” McSorley said. “Don’t necessarily know when or if it will come, but you want to be ready if that moment presents itself. Just working a bunch, getting in extra film, getting in the game plan, obviously.”

McSorley played for the Ravens during the preseason, but has been on the sidelines through the first 15 games of the season.

There was no indication whether or not McSorley would definitely play on Sunday, but with nothing to lose, Harbaugh may throw the rookie into the fire on the final game. And if that opportunity comes, McSorley will be ready for it.
