Ravens won't revisit adding a third QB to roster

A development during a game on Sunday could be a nightmare scenario for the Ravens.

The Miami Dolphins lost a pair of quarterbacks in starter Chad Pennington (shoulder) and backup Chad Henne (knee) in an eventual 29-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans. Fortunately for the Dolphins, they had a third quarterback in Tyler Thigpen on the active roster, and he threw a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The Ravens have just starter Joe Flacco and backup Marc Bulger on the active roster. So could what happened in Miami force the Ravens to reconsider keeping just two quarterbacks on the active roster?"We're not going to react to what happens around the league," coach John Harbaugh said during his weekly news conference Monday. "If we do that, we'd be back and forth all the time. We made a decision with the way we wanted to go. If we were to lose both of our quarterbacks in a game, that'd be a problem. But we've made a decision to balance out the fact that that's so highly unlikely – although it can happen – that we'd rather have an extra player on the roster. But if that happens, we'd probably go with Anquan Boldin and try to win a football game and make our way next week or however we had to."

Boldin was a quarterback until his freshman year at Florida State, and he reportedly has a strong arm. Asked about Boldin's quarterback skills, Harbaugh replied with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek.

"He's dynamic, he's dynamite," Harbaugh said, eliciting laughter from the media. "He's zipping it all around. He shreds our defense on a regular basis."
