Quarterback Lamar Jackson has not practiced all week because of an ankle injury that kept him playing in the team’s last two games, but head coach John Harbaugh said Friday that Jackson still has a chance to play.

Jackson’s injury designation reflects that view. Jackson has been listed as questionable to play against the Rams on Sunday. Tyler Huntley would be in line to make his third start of the season if Jackson can’t play.

Wide receiver Marquise Brown (illness) is also listed as questionable after missing the last two days of practice. Linebacker Odafe Oweh (foot) is not expected to play after being listed as doubtfull while cornerback Anthony Averett (ribs, chest) and guard Ben Powers (foot) have been ruled out.

Wide receiver Devin Durvernay (ankle), linebacker Daelin Hayes (knee), and fullback Patrick Ricard (knee) round out the team’s questionable group.

  1. The excuses for Lamar will be taken to a new level if he plays again, stinks again, and then Ravens fans will continue to deny reality and blame everything else but him for his poor play. I’d trade him once he’s healthy. A team desperate for a QB will try Lamar on a show-me kind of deal. But Lamar is unlikely to take it. Unfortunately by not signing earlier he really harmed himself financially. A running back who can occasionally throw but who is now dinged up? Maybe a one year, $12mm show-me deal?

  2. I think Lamar will end up regretting being his own agent. If the Ravens are smart they would put a lot stipulations in any deal they give him.

  3. DeCosta is smart. At this point given Lamar’s rapid decline and now that he’s dinged up I imagine he is seriously going to explore trading him. If Huntley continues to play well, the Ravens will be far better off getting what they can for Lamar and moving on. It never made sense to pay Lamar QB money given how bad he’s become, but now that he’s got an injury which is likely the first of many given his run-first nature, it would be foolish to pay him. The problem is that no other team is going to change their offense for a running back QB. Harbaugh was arrogant enough to believe it would work, and went all in, and now it’s a steaming mess. Other teams are smarter.
