It’s looking more and more like Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson has taken his last live snap of the regular season.

The 2019 MVP did not practice again on Thursday with his ankle injury, making it unlikely that he starts against the Steelers on Sunday.

Jackson has practiced only once since suffering the ankle injury in Baltimore’s loss to Cleveland in Week 14. Jackson was on the field last Wednesday but was moving around with a noticeable limp.

Jackson’s completed 64.4 percent of his passes for 2,882 yards with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season.

Backup quarterback Tyler Huntley is on the injury report with an illness, but was a full participant on Wednesday and Thursday.

Receiver Marquise Brown (ankle) and guard Ben Cleveland (head) were both added to Thursday’s injury report as non-participants.

Cornerback Anthony Averett (ribs/chest) and edge rusher Dave Oweh (foot) did not practice.

Offensive tackle Patrick Mekari (hand) was limited after he didn’t practice on Wednesday. Guard Ben Powers (foot) remained limited. Center Bradley Bozeman (illness) was still full.

Running back Devonta Freeman, offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva, and nose tackle Brandon Williams all received a Thursday rest day.

  1. Neither team is going anywhere anyway.

    Ben can play because his next play date is with his three youngsters in the backyard.

    Actually, it might be better for them to lose….they get a better pick in each round, they would at least on paper play a lower rated team as third place finishers in the three uncommon games.

    Why risk anyone worthwhile only to have a long rehab that would bleed into preseason/early season.

  2. Sit all of the walking and limping wounded! Play hard, lose, and get a better draft position!

  3. Shut him down, tank the game, get a higher deft pick, draft a grade A O-lineman.. Even if they made the playoffs how far could this team realistically go?

  4. Again?

    Man, the injuries to the running back room have just been devastating for this team.

  5. A bad ending to his terrible season. Lamar took not just a few steps back, but a broad jump back. I hope he gets healthy, but it’s clear he’s going the wrong direction and may very well be out of the league in 3 years if he stays banged up. Harbaugh’s arrogance will crush the Ravens because they will pay Lamar a bunch of money despite how bad of a QB he is, and they won’t be able to afford the players he needs. Welcome to more years of missing the playoffs and 7-10, 8-9 records, Balto!
