Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson won’t play today, due to an illness that is not COVID. Whatever the precise illness, it will cause him to miss only the third game of his career.

Jay Glazer of Fox spoke to Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who said of Jackson, “We brought him in. We did everything we could. We did IVs. He just doesn’t feel good enough to go.”

Jackson previously didn’t play in Week 17 of the 2019 season, because the Ravens had clinched the No. 1 seed. He also missed a game in 2020 due to COVID.

With Jackson out, it’s Tyler Huntley at quarterback for the Ravens in the last game on the schedule against a team currently below .500.

  1. All typical behavior when a player wants a new contract. Lamar played well enough this season that he now holds all the cards.

  2. Huntley effectively played the same way Lamar has been playing the last few weeks. Low passing yards, high completion %, average QBR. Lamar might look a lot more exciting and rip off some sweet runs when he scrambles, but the net result was the same. Go ahead and look at Lamar’s last 4 games and tell me differently.
