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 (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Broncos. He dealt with back soreness early in the week but put in a full practice on Friday. We’re not expecting Jackson to be limited today.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) is expected to play vs. Denver today. Jackson sat out the first 2 practices of the week with a sore back but put in a full practice on Friday. We've heard nothing to suggest that he'll be limited today.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Broncos. He sat out the first 2 practices of the week but was a full-go on Friday. WR Marquise Brown said Jackson looked “real good.” He’s fully expected to start vs. Denver, but check back Sunday for confirmation.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport expects Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) to play vs. the Broncos on Sunday. Jackson has missed the first 2 practices of the week, but it sounds like that's been mostly precautionary. "Nothing much to worry about," Rapoport said. "Nothing alarming. I would expect Lamar Jackson back at practice [Friday] ... no one I've talked to is alarmed at all." We'll see what Jackson does in practice today and how he's listed on the final injury report.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (back) missed practice again on Thursday. The team is calling it "back soreness," according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec, who does expect Jackson to play vs. Denver this weekend. But this is certainly a situation to monitor over the next few days. We'll see if Jackson practices tomorrow.
