If the Ravens are going to make a comeback in Sunday’s game against the Browns, they’re going to have to do it without Lamar Jackson.

Baltimore has ruled Jackson out for the rest of the game with the right ankle injury he suffered at the start of the second quarter.

Jackson had just thrown a pass when he was hit outside of the pocket by linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah. Jackson limped off the field and was examined in the medical tent before he was eventually carted to the locker room.

Tyler Huntley has been in the game for Jackson. While the Baltimore offense had started rolling a bit to start the second half, Huntley fumbled while scrambling in the red zone and Cleveland recovered.

Huntley also was strip-sacked by defensive end Myles Garrett at the end of the first half, with Garrett returning the loose ball to the end zone.

The Browns lead 24-6 early in the third quarter.

  1. Lamar should have done the contract earlier! With most of the defense on IR and most of the O-line, It’s time to pad the draft position and call it a season!

  2. Jackson gets all his value as a QB via his legs. Even if this isn’t season ending, if he can’t run like himself the Ravens might as well pack up and go home.

  3. First of all, Lamar is an exciting player and whenever he tucks the ball to run it has to scare the life out of a defense. However, teams have gotten wise and know he can’t read a defense. If the first guy isn’t open he runs. He’s not an NFL-caliber passer. He’s a run-first QB. Sure, it can work against bad teams but against good defenses it doesn’t work. Heck the Steelers’ defense is terrible and they gave him fits. I blame that on Harbaugh.

    This could be the beginning of the end for Lamar. If this injury is serious and he loses a step he’ll be out of the NFL in three years if not sooner. It’s really not fair for Harbaugh to put all his eggs in Lamar’s basket. Eventually that backfires. It looks like it has this year.

    Baltimore currently owns the 27th pick. Not much padding to be done…

  5. Baltimore should have fleeced some dumb team quietly this offseason.

    Instead, they are now in deep trouble in either direction.

  6. Beginning of the end? For an ankle injury? I guess when you hate a player, anything goes. Prescott’s leg was shredded, and not one person said his career was over. And now Lamar finally gets hurts on routine play in his 4th year and the I told ya so comes out. Just ridiculous.

  7. Said it before, and I will say it again: the Ravens are better off with Huntley as their QB. Much better passer, and fewer turnovers. Lamar look awful before the injury. He has one read, never looks downfield any more, and just tucks and runs over and over again. 4 completions for 17 yards tells you all you need to know. The gimmick offense is over and unfortunately it’s clear as day he’s going from average to bad because of his serious deficiencies. Stop talking about 2019 and MVP. Just look at his play the past two seasons and these last 7 games. He’s been awful.

  8. Hutley, fewer turnovers? Better than Jackson? I guess you missed that fumble early in the 3rd. And did he comeback and win the game? Ah,okay, thought so.

  9. Nite2al: what games do you watch? Today, Lamar was so great in his first 3 drives that he went 3 and out every time. He makes a single read and that’s it. His 4 completions went for 17 yards, but one was for 11 yards. So the other 3 went for 6 total yards. He can’t throw the ball downfield or outside the numbers. Against the blitz his QBR is 9. He’s leading the league in turnovers in his past 7 games. The hurry-up offense looked even worse, which is hard to do given how truly terrible the offense has been in the last 7 games. Huntley throws for 270 yards and gets you more than 20 points for the first time in 6 weeks but you are still telling us Lamar is so great? Honestly, I think you’re watching Lamar from 2019 when he had a few nice regular season games running the ball.
