Lamar Jackson not practicing on Thursday

NFL: DEC 12 Ravens at Browns

Earlier, offensive coordinator Greg Roman said whether or not quarterback Lamar Jackson plays could go “down to the wire.”

It might have to.

According to multiple reporters on the Ravens beat, Jackson is not practicing on Thursday due to his ankle injury.

Thursday is usually one of Baltimore’s heaviest work days of the week. That’s part of why Jackson not being on the field is not a positive sign for his potential Sunday availability.

If Jackson is unable to play, Tyler Huntley would start against the Packers. He won his previous start for Jackson when the quarterback was out due to an illness earlier this season.

Offensive tackle Patrick Mekari, defensive lineman Calais Campbell, tight end Nick Boyle, receiver Marquise Brown, left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, fullback Patrick Ricard, offensive tackle Tyre Phillips, left guard Ben Powers, defensive lineman Brandon Williams, and safety Chuck Clark also weren’t practicing.

Baltimore’s full injury report will be released later on Thursday.

  1. If Lamar cannot practice, he should have more time to study film. People give him a lot of credit for putting the team on his back, but many of those times, the team was down because of his bad decisions.

  2. A running back with a bad ankle isn’t much of a running back. So delicious that this running back was injured while he was impersonating a QB.

  3. It’s amazing this team has the record they do with all the players currently on injured reserve (15 to start the season.)

  4. What am I missing? Why do you want him to play? For 7 weeks he’s been either the worst or 2nd worst QB in the league. Turnover machine, can’t throw, defenses have adjusted and brought pressure, and he still has no idea what to do under pressure. How is Lamar helping the Ravens win? It sure seems like they are winning in spite of him. And don’t give me the “well he was MVP in 2019” or “he’s won a million regular season games” arguments because those are useless and irrelevant. The simple fact is that he has been terrible.

  5. I’d like to see Tyler Huntley get the start. Signing Lamar Jackson to a $30-40M per year contract will ruin this franchise for years to come. Trade Jackson if Huntley proves capable – I hope he does! Go Ravens!!

  6. It’s a pocket passers league. Quarterbacks like Jackson will always make the ESPN late night highlight shows but guys like Mac Jones are the ones who will bring home the trophies.

    Baltimore, like Buffalo, live in a bubble and their fans are clueless. They’re total homers.

    Man I bet you crack yourself up. Gloating over an injured player? Stay classy.

    He has more comeback wins of any QB this season. How is that not dealing with pressure?

  10. An immobile Lamar is not what you want. Maybe one day, but today is not that day.

    He’s lost 4 out of his last 7 games….. that’s not good

  12. Lamar has committed the awful offense of not taking the money when he should have. DeCosta and Harbaugh already knew they can’t win a Super Bowl or multiple games in the playoffs with him, but these past 7 games have exposed how poor of a QB he really is. If you can’t throw, you can’t be a long term QB in the NFL. Period. The gimmick running QB offense was fun for a few regular season wins, but defenses have adjusted and Lamar has not. And if he’s banged up even just a tiny bit, his running game is gone and he’s on the train out of the league in 2-3 years. He should have signed that contract earlier this year but he wanted big money and his ego got in the way.

  13. “Baltimore’s full injury report will be released later on Thursday.” – in other words, the whole team.

  14. I think a break from action will do Lamar some good to get his head straight. He’s been his own worst enemy, trying to do too much. But we’re fortunate Tyler has stepped in with a clear perspective and done okay – given the injury status of this team. Heal up Lamar. Tyler, let’s get the W this weekend. Then we can worry about next week.
