The NFL has moved this week's Steelers-Ravens game from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon as Baltimore deals with a COVID outbreak. For now, the only impact is a 2-game, rather than 3-game, Thanksgiving slate. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation in Baltimore. We imagine more COVID positives could push the game out of this week.
Let's just let ESPN's Adam Schefter explain why the Ravens will practice Wednesday without their starting QB: "Lamar Jackson is not practicing today in a COVID-related case the league still is trying to process, per Jamison Hensley and me. Jackson, who tested positive on Thanksgiving, had another test that NFL officials flagged. NFL now going through science, and Ravens awaiting answers." We'll see where this situation goes. It's impossible to tell at the moment whether this is something that will only cost Jackson a day or 2 -- or an issue we should be concerned about. Jackson, of course, had the positive test last November that cost him a game. But we hadn't heard of any related issues since. For now, we're not adjusting Jackson's fantasy outlook.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson sustained a concussion at the end of the 3rd quarter of Saturday night's loss to the Bills. He struggled before the injury, throwing for just 162 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT and being limited to 34 yards on 9 carries. This is the 1st documented concussion for Jackson.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson left in the 4th quarter of Monday night's game against the Browns to be treated for cramps. We'll see if he can make it back onto the field before it's over.
Update: Jackson returned for a 4th-down play and threw a go-ahead TD pass to WR Marquise Brown with less than 2 minutes left.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has been activated from the COVID list. He's fully expected to start against the Cowboys on Tuesday night. That's a plus matchup. But the expected absences of TE Mark Andrews and WR Willie Snead leave Jackson as just a mid-range QB1.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is expected to be activated from the COVID list and start Tuesday's game against the Cowboys, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jackson carries elevated risk in Week 13 fantasy lineups coming off the illness -- but the matchup is sweet vs. Dallas' 22nd-ranked QB defense.
