Lamar Jackson missed Thursday’s practice for Ravens

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson didn’t appear on Wednesday’s injury report. He quite possibly will appear on Thursday’s.

Via Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun, Jackson missed practice on Thursday. On Wednesday, he said his hip was sore from landing on it after flipping into the end zone for a touchdown.

Soon, the Ravens will issue their practice report for the day.

If Jackson can’t play, Tyler Huntley would get the nod against the Lions on Sunday. While it’s too early to assume that will happen, it’s apparently not too early to worry about the possibility.

  1. Wow…what a leader, great decision (that he already said he would do again) to do a flip into the end zone.

  2. It’s stupid flips like in the KC game that should make the Ravens think twice about paying this guy top QB money. Just not smart of Lamar. His style of play already invites injury. Why tempt fate?

  3. So:
    1) He practiced in full Wednesday without any effects from the flip he did on Sunday
    2) It’s 21 days after he was rumored online to have gotten the COVID vaccine, when everyone gets a second dose

    Knowing those two things I can guess why he missed Thursday’s practice, but I guess it’s more fun to blame the flip

  4. During the 2WW British and American pilots were forbidden to do a victory roll when they returned to base. The idea being the plane could have damage to it that could keep them from returning the plane to level flight. Perhaps Jackson could learn from this.

  5. This guy is self destructive. Plus no agent for a VERY large guaranteed contract. He needs better people around him.

  6. I believe the Bears player who blew out his own knee celebrating a pointless sack late in a blowout loss to NE was also some sort of Lamar.

  7. I hope Lamar learns his lesson and refrains from doing stupid stuff like this in the future.
    I think he will be ready for Sunday. I expect Lamar to have an mvp season and lead his team to a championship!

    Valid point but I don’t think we need to go back to WWII for an analogy. Harbaugh needs to have a word with him and not let it slide. Imagine if Belichick was his coach!

  9. I don’t know how many times his father Buckwheat told him not to do that.
    He isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.
    Ravens cannot pay him until he grows up.

  10. Lack of intelligence leads to poor decisions. Like injuring yourself while performing an unnecessary flip. Or I don’t know….representing yourself without an agent while being unable to critically read the small print of a contract. The Ravens are in a great position right now. They are going to be able to throw so many things in that contract to get out from under it when Lamar’s body breaks down in a couple of years.

  11. The flip wasn’t the first questionable decision that he has made and I am sure it won’t be the last.

  12. I keep hoping he’ll remove his only asset – his legs – this guy has no plan b with which to fall back on. His mobility is the only reason he completes passes. It is not like he can read a defense or understand the concept of a timing route anticipating the receiver breaking open before he actually does. Once a running back that can throw, always a running back until the legs make him a statue.
