Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is not practicing today. The reason has not been announced, but it is related to COVID-19.

Jackson’s absence was first noted by reporters on the scene, and Adam Schefter and Jamison Hensley of ESPN later reported that this is “a COVID-related case the league still is trying to process.”

It’s unclear exactly what that means, but it apparently stems from Jackson’s most recent COVID-19 test.

Jackson missed one game last season after testing positive for COVID-19. He declined to answer when asked by reporters this summer whether he is vaccinated.

    we don’t know his status but it’s entirely possible that he has no symptoms and isn’t actually covid positive.

  6. He is not the first player to be infected and he is certainly not going to be the last.

  7. It’s a tough choice for players, wondering if they should get vaccinated.

    Let’s see: A) Get a light prick in the shoulder with possibly slight soreness for a few hours or B) Have a six inch Q-tip jammed in your nostril every day and be barred from normal routines.
