Colt McCoy won't play on Christmas night because he's still in the concussion protocol.

With McCoy out, McSorley will make his first start.

Kyler Murray, who tore anACL in a Week 14 loss to the New England Pats, suffered a concussion this past Sunday in a loss to the Denver Broncos and was placed on injured reserve.

McSorley was 7-of-15 with 95 yards and two picks. In four games this season, he has completed 51.7% of his passes for 166 yards and 3 turnovers.

McSorley has appeared in seven regular-season games in his career and has attempted just 39 passes. He scored a touchdown in the 2020 season for Baltimore.
