Lamar Jackson not at Thursday practice, but Tyler Huntley was throwing

Things remain the same when it comes to Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson’s practice status.

According to multiple reporters on the Ravens beat, Jackson was not on the field for the portion of Thursday’s practice open to media. Jackson has not practiced since suffering a knee injury against the Broncos on Dec. 4.

But quarterback Tyler Huntley was throwing during the session. Huntley has been dealing with tendinitis in his throwing shoulder and did not play in the regular-season finale against Cincinnati last week.

Given that Jackson has still not gotten back on the field two days into the practice week, it’s becoming more difficult to envision Jackson playing against the Bengals in the playoff matchup on Sunday night. If Jackson isn’t on the field for Friday’s practice, it would almost certainly be Huntley behind center for the wild card round.

Multiple reporters also noted that cornerback Brandon Stephens (illness), long snapper Nick Moore (illness), and offensive lineman Trystan Colon weren’t practicing on Thursday.

The Ravens’ full injury report will be released later on Thursday. Head coach John Harbaugh is next slated to speak to reporters on Friday.

  1. Where ever Lamar goes next season, hope it’s NFC, path to SB easier through there. Payton back to Saints and they get Lamar would be dream.

    Ravens, just roll with Anthony Brown. Might as well, last week was good practice for real thing. Could unlock another Purdy. Could have Trent Dilfer run. Ravens defence playing lights out.

  2. Lamar not playing, if capable, would not sit well with fellow players. You still play for teammates, regardless of the $. That’s the way team sports work.

  3. I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say he’s not playing because he can’t. But I think most Ravens fans have written this game off as a loss. The only thing that allowed this anemic offense to work was Lamar’s scramble ability. Hope I’m wrong.

  4. NEWSFLASH Ravens !!!!! Jackson is collecting workman’s comp and he will not be playing until he gets pizaaaaaaaaaaaaaDa !!!!!!

  5. Huntley gives a better chance of winning than Lamar does. He chokes in the playoffs and hasn’t played a game in we over a month.

  6. I think Lamar has made a business decision to not risk his health for this team this year.

    Which is awkward because he’ll be tagged at a bloated price, then Baltimore will want too much, and then whoever does stupidly trade picks for him, will then have no leverage.

    See the long term disastrous Jamal Adams situation as an example.

  8. Ravens fans say ” well, he won’t break the bank yet because they will franchise him”. Isn’t that still going to be about $35 Mill? Kinda expensive for a regular season fantasy QB, who goes ice cold around January.

  9. After the Hamlin incident this will very much be the norm ,owners hard at work right now trying to craft up a countermeasure!

  10. 3 Scenarios for Lamar next year and two of them involve a Harbaugh

    1. Miami in 2023
    2. New Contract with Baltimore in 2023
    3. Baltimore Tags in 2023, Lamar holds out, and he joins Jim Harbaugh in Miami 2024.

  11. this doesnt end well for LJ in Charm City .. the question is what team will he play for next yr ??

  12. I could not care less who wins this game but to think an NFL QB is faking an injury for a new contract is insane.

    He is injured…sheesh.

    This narrative makes no sense. He has to show he is worth a mega contract. This was supposed to be his ‘prove it’ year. He hasn’t. He’s unavailable two years in a row when they need him to be great. And those two years are coming off a mediocre 2020. He can’t ride his 2019 season to the bank.

    Saying “When he is not on the field they don’t score points” doesn’t prove it. At the same time people blame GRo for bad play calling or Huntley for not being a great backup or the defense for giving up points. So is it bad OC, bad backup QB, bad D or star QB?

    Instead, being on the field, making plays, making big time throws, winning games, orchestrating 2 minute drills, and throwing dimes to come back from behind proves it. That is what big money QBs do.

    If he wants the big money he needs to be all in under the tag next year and prove it. If he won’t play under the tag then Ravens should ship him out to someone who is willing to pay him before he proves he deserves it.

    I am a Ravens fan who is tired of this drama

    Write off as a loss? Not on your life. Cincy didn’t look particularly great while gifted 4 turnovers in the last game. Watch out for any division foe. Washington just spanked Dallas with a 3rd stringer. As a Ravens fan, I’m going to be glued to my set expecting the Ravens to beat down an uber overconfident “Joe Thinks He’s Cool” Burrow!

  15. Who wouldn’t rush back without a long-term contract and throw to 90 year olds like Sammy Watkins and DeSean Jackson? Yet somehow Jackson has led his team to a fourth quarter leads in all 12 games he has played but the vaunted defense has blown 5 leads in the 4 losses all while living in the paradise of Baltimore Maryland.

  16. Franchise TAG is 35-40 Mil isn’t it? Seriously doubt the Ravens want to do that and Seriously doubt Lamar will take it. This could get way ugly and the Ravens won’t have the leverage is teams don’t think he will play ball.

    ===================
    ===================
    It’s the star QB that’s difference between them being 12th in ppg to dead last by a mile. Greg Roman is the OC for every game so if he is bad for Huntley he is bad for Jackson as well. Jackson wins in spite of it. As well as the his receivers having the highest drop percentage in the league. The last full game Jackson played he was throwing dimes and coming back from behind in the 2 minutes drill against the jags. Only to his receivers drop 3 touchdown passes and his defense blow the lead twice. I think it was the final straw and I dont blame him. Not to mention only 2 of the 10 highest paid QB have one a superbowl in the last 10 years Mahomes and Stafford. At the time last year Stafford was in year 14 with 0 playoffs wins. Jackson has proven himself elite year after year. Its the Ravens who have let him down. Ozzie Newsome was the franchise.

  18. He doesn’t want another playoff loss on his resume so he probably figures this is the easy way out.

  19. He knows he’s about to get a big pay day no matter what, who cares about this season lol, all he cares about is Lamar right now.

  20. If Lamar is smart which is debateable it’s possible he has injury insurance. Maybe this is his way of getting paid at least half of what he was shooting for and not having any more wear and tear. Of course if he takes the payout he will never be able to play pro football again.
