Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed practice time with an illness this week, but when he wasn’t listed on the Friday injury report, it appeared that he was good to go for Sunday against the Bears.

But maybe not.

The Ravens announced today that Jackson is now listed as questionable with an illness. The Ravens have not specified the type of illness Jackson is battling, but there has been no indication that he is in the COVID-19 protocol.

Jackson said on Friday that he was feeling great, so he must have started to feel sicker today for the Ravens to add him to the injury report.

Tyler Huntley is the only other quarterback on the Ravens’ active roster, so he would start if Jackson can’t go. Quarterback Trace McSorley is on the practice squad and could be elevated to the active roster today.

  1. this is too throw the Bears off of their “cover 0 ” game plan and make them prep in addition to another qb. Harbaugh tried to sound confident in their prep for teams imitating what the dolphins did, maybe he realizes Lamar is not cut out for all-out blitzes??

  2. Jackson has missed games due to covid twice already

    Not saying this is the case .. but if it is and he’s missing a 3rd game.. whatever shot he got obviously didn’t work.

  3. Jackson is not vaccinated and has had COVID twice already. Helpfully this is just a cold or flu.

  4. The Ravens have been caught cheating in recent years with headsetgate, practicegate and Bluetoohgate, so you simply cannot put anything past this franchise, especially with thr relationship Bisciotti and Goodell have.

  5. Using the term “gate” for every imagined infraction is annoying and doesn’t make it true.

  6. Every since Lamar Jackson’s Rookie season he’s always coming up with an illness from time to time. My guess is that he’s deficient in Vitamin D and Magnesium. A young athlete who is in as good of shape as Jackson is, should not be getting as sick as he often does.

  7. Lamar has not taken the jab and has had covid twice already.
    Every week he misses time with these “illnesses”. Don’t put anything past the ravens
    when it comes to trying to cheat the system. Most likely though, he just got too smoked up
    or drank too much bong water and is expected to recover.

  8. Just get vaccinated already. This is the third time. The team needs to be able to count on their starting QB.

  9. “Is an inability to read a defense considered an illness now?”

    Hey the RPO requires him to read a defense. In particular if the LB, DE or safety is cheating inside to stop the handoff. If he sees that he keeps it and goes. A lot of teams with moderate mobile QB are trying it. Plus he’s looked off safeties, run through progressions. He may not be Tom Brady level but he’s doing it. The problem in Miami is he was under pressure the second the ball was snapped. They clearly didn’t practice against a lot of Cover Zero defense. Namely teaching the young WRs to see it and run a quick slant.

  10. No one should be forcing to inject something into their body against their will. No one should be encouraging this neither. If you are, you’re on the wrong side of history.

  11. Jackson has missed 2 games in his career. He was held out of the last game in 2019 because Balto had already secured the #1 seed. He was held out of week 12 vs Pittsburgh in 2020 due to testing positive with COVID 19.
