Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday, due to a knee injury. His absence raises questions about his availability for Sunday against the Bengals.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Jackson is still expected to play, and that the two days off are precautionary.

Despite the precaution and the expectation that he’ll play, Jackson obviously has an injury. It will be interesting to see if he practices on Friday. Even if he does, he won’t be as prepared for Sunday’s game as he otherwise would have been.

Will that be enough to give Joe Burrow and company a chance to pull of what would be a huge upset? We’ll find out on Sunday.

  1. “Not considered serious”

    Ok, knee injuries to your QB are always serious. They can get worse and linger.

    Do they really need him to beat the Bungles? I’d rest this knee this week and then see how the knee is looking next week before the Eagles game.

  2. Averaging like 170/yds passing a game vs Browns/Chiefs/Texans/Skins.
    Not going to get it done come playoff time, too one dimensional.

  3. Burrow is hot. Bengals ALWAYS give Baltimore a fit. Ravens defensive backfield is playing like a blind man in a snowstorm. Burrow and company have set passing records the last 2 weeks. On pace to unseat Andrew Lucks rookie record. Jackson playing hurt. Don’t see why you would say “HUGE” upset. Baltimore is prime for a trap picking…….

  4. Hope he improves soon. Should be a good game. Our Defense was finally stout against the run last week, and if you stop the run than you stop the Ravens.

  5. Weird how tight lipped they’re being about this. He wasn’t injured on Sunday. Hope it isn’t Covid.

  6. 12 NFL awards including MVP, 31 NFL records, and 30 Ravens franchise records at 23 years old. Yeah…he is well below average

    Have you seen the bengals play this year? They aren’t pushovers, they will bring it

  8. Joe Burrow throws the cleanest, most crisp 3.5 yard pass I have ever witnessed. Guy is the real deal.

  9. Take away the running ability of Jackson and he is just meh. A QB can’t keep running like a RB in the NFL just ask his backup.
