Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was limited at Baltimore’s practice on Monday with a quad injury.
Ravens put out an estimated injury report because they’re having walk through ahead of Thursday’s game. Two interesting notes: LT Ronnie Stanley has a concussion. And WB Lamar Jackson is limited with quad injury.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) December 9, 2019
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh isn’t overly concerned about the status of his quarterback.
John Harbaugh said that Lamar Jackson’s injury isn’t serious, but it’s day-to-day and they play in a couple days. He didn’t want to get into other injuries. https://t.co/LrhgVqBO8h— Sarah Ellison (@sgellison) December 10, 2019
Jackson is considered an MVP candidate for the 11-2 Ravens. The second year quarterback from Louisville has 28 touchdown passes against 6 interceptions and a 109.2 passer rating. He also has over 1,000 rushing yards on the season with three games to go.
A short week doesn’t help anybody with injuries. It doesn’t sound like Jackson is in much danger of missing Thursday’s game against the Jets. There is a question of whether it could limit him within the game.
Ultimately, though, I wouldn’t expect to see this play a major role in the game. Going to Baltimore on a short week is a tall task for this Jets team, and Jackson has established himself as one of the game’s premier playmakers.
