Ravens Issue Surprising Injury Update For Lamar Jackson
The Ravens issued a surprising injury update for Lamar Jackson.
Baltimore has been rolling for most of the year behind the MVP-like efforts of Jackson.
Unfortunately, it appears the Ravens’ worst nightmare came true Monday when it was announced that their star player had suffered a quad injury.
Jackson ended up limited in practice as a result of the injury, which he apparently sustained during Sunday’s victory over the Buffalo Bills.
According to multiple reports, backup Robert Griffin III took the majority of the reps on Monday.
“Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is dealing with a quad injury and will be limited in Monday’s walkthrough practice. During media viewing, Robert Griffin III took all the reps. Jackson came onto the field just as reporters were leaving the viewing period,” tweeted out Jamison Hensley.
It remains to be seen whether Jackson can recovery fully in three days, as Baltimore is set to take on the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football.
When pressed on his quarterback’s status, John Harbaugh remained elusive.
“It’s less than 24 hours after the game,” he said.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Lamar Jackson’s quad injury: “It’s less than 24 hours after the game. It’s hard to say. It’s not a serious injury in that sense. This is day to day. We play Thursday night. We’ll see where we’re at.”

“It’s hard to say. It’s not a serious injury in that sense. This is day to day. We play Thursday night. We’ll see where we’re at.”
While Baltimore obviously does not need a whole lot to beat the pathetic Jets, the bigger issue here is what this means for the team’s Super Bowl aspirations.
Ravens brass should be able to provide a bit more clarity on Jackson’s health as the week progresses.
