Greg Roman: Whether Lamar Jackson plays on Sunday could go “down to the wire”

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson did not practice on Wednesday and he may not practice on Thursday with the ankle injury suffered in last week’s loss to the Browns.

But according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman, Jackson is doing everything he can to get back on the field as quickly as possible.

“He’s getting treatment around the clock,” Roman said, via Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com. “He’s a good healer but we’ll just have to see what the doctors say.”

Tyler Huntley, who started the Week 11 win over the Bears, is in line to start against the Packers if Jackson isn’t available.

Roman said the decision of whether or not Jackson plays “could go down to the wire.”

Jackson has struggled in recent weeks, completing 64 percent of his passes for 939 yards with six touchdowns and eight interceptions, rushing for 287 yards, and taking 17 sacks in his last five games. But the Ravens will likely need him at his best to beat the Packers.

  1. As a Packers fan, I hope he can’t play. But I hope he gets healed up in time to beat any of our rivals.

  2. His back up is a pretty good clone of Jackson he’s not as good a runner but is a better passer .

  3. At this point in the season, teams better start preparing to go against the NFL’s elite because it doesn’t get any easier from here on out.

    Not sure if Jackson plays or not, but I doubt he’ll be 100%, though I’m hoping that he is.
    It’s the only way to truly battle test your team for postseason play.

  4. Ravens losing to Packers-Bengals-Rams, NFL we don’t want to see injured QB’s like Mayfield and Jackson in the playoffs, let them heal for the long-term

    The Ravens have already played the rest of the NFC North, and their only remaining game against any NFC team is the Rams.

  6. Ravens win no matter who plays. WE have done fine with a myriad of injuries. No difference here.

  7. He needs to heal up and play, they just found a cheaper clone of him who is a pretty good passer.

  8. Forget about the injury… Jackson has been exposed as an average overall player. He makes spectacular, jaw-dropping plays and then throws a bad INT the next series. Sound familiar?

    Michael Vick 2.0

  9. He hasn’t struggled recently with 64% completion rate, that’s the same as it has been for his career, if anything it will go down more because the threat of him running will be less

    Please look at the list of injured Packers before you promise a victory.OL has been a MASH unit all year.OLB have been a mess.One of the best CBs in the league out since week 4,etc.I could go on for awhile on injuries.Yet GB keeps winning and have the best record in the NFC.Granted the Ravens are beat up but no more than GB or half dozen other teams.

    If by fine you mean lost 2 in a row and 4 out of the last 7 then yeah….they are fine

  12. Lamar or no Lamar, the Ravens’ slide continues. They could very well lose out, with the winner of the AFC North finishing 9-8.

  13. Please let him play – I want that injury compounded with more – time for his to be gamed like he does with the rules of his position.

  14. I love Ravens fans using his high completion rate as some proof that Lamar is good. Yes, he can hit 3 yard slants, sticks, and curls to Mark Andrews when he’s wide open. Yes, he pretty much only looks at Mark Andrews because he can’t throw down field or outside the numbers or to anyone that’s tightly covered. So he doesn’t throw much. In his last 7 games he’s either the worst or 2nd worst QB by almost all metrics that really matter: turnovers, QBR, points scored. His last game was brutal: 3 straight 3 and outs, 4 completions for 17 yards, but one completion went for 11 yards, so the other 3 went for 6 yards. He literally has no idea what to do under pressure and has made zero adjustments since Miami. He’s hurting you, not helping.

    Ravens missing:
    -Humphrey all-pro corner
    -Peters all-pro corner
    -Stanley all-pro LT
    -Rb1 Dobbins
    -RB2 Edwards
    -RB3 Hill
    -Elliot Starting safety
    -LJ Fort. starting LB
    -Wolfe. starting D-line
    -McPhee. Starting OLB

    These are just the STARTERS that are on the IR for the year.
    I’m not crying about it but just for perspective bc everyone thinks their team is the most snake bitten.

  17. I see how you did that …reference in the byline to the greatest cop/villain/political drama of all time…also set in Baltimore. Nice!

  18. The “we have so many injuries” argument is not legit. Here’s why:
    Humprhey just went down.
    Peter is a decent corner, but nothing close to a lockdown corner.
    Stanley, yes, I will give you that– not having him is a big loss.
    All your RBs are irrelevant. Since Lamar has been QB you’ve had a different leading rusher every season. Doesn’t matter who plays RB given your QB is your RB to begin with.
    The other players like Wolfe and Fort are average.
    Yes, you have a large number of players on IR… but almost none are critical players.

  19. As a fan of another AFC team, I hope with every fiber in my being that the Ravens pay Jackson a huge contract!
