Lamar Jackson returns to practice

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has never missed an NFL game due to injury. After two days of missed practices due to a back problem, he’s back on the practice field.

It’s unclear whether he’ll be listed as a limited or full participant. He’ll likely have the “questionable” label applied to him later today.

The question then becomes whether he’ll travel with the team to Denver. He likely will. And then whether he’ll suit up and play against the Broncos. He likely will.

Even if he does, his back problem is a reminder that, as indestructible as he may seem during games, he isn’t. The hits add up. They cause issues that don’t easily go away.

It’s all the more reason for Jackson to get his second contract sooner than later.

  1. And no matter who you are, how “indestructible” you think you are, if you do not complete a forward flip and hit the ground with your lower back/hip, chances are you are going to cause some damage to both. Those hits add up, too.

  2. Jackson will get forced out of the game on Sunday with an injury. The Ravens offense is built on QB draws and back injuries aren’t friendly to that style of play. The Broncos defense this year is no joke and if Lamar has even a slight back injury, he has no chance of playing all 4 quarters.

  3. Some people are just obsessed with Lamar. They know his improved passing is killing their false narrative about being a RB, so now they take shots at his flip in the end zone or his perceived IQ. Either it’s jealousy or “something else” that they have against him. All football players get hit multiple times in a game, just maybe that’s why he might be sore. Keep on hating and he’ll keep on winning and leading his team.

    “Keep on winning”? Winning what? Lamar has one postseason win in 4 seasons

  6. Teams usually struggle the first time they face Lamar and his offense because they can’t simulate it in practice. However the Broncos are catching a huge break with Lamar not being 100%.
