Ravens coach: No update on Lamar Jackson (ankle)
Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh didn’t shed much light on the status of star quarterback Lamar Jackson on Wednesday.
Jackson didn’t practice at all last week due to an ailing ankle before sitting out Baltimore’s 31-30 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. It served as the first NFL start Jackson had missed because of injury in nearly four seasons.
The Ravens hope to have Jackson back under center this Sunday against the host Cincinnati Bengals. The AFC North rivals each own an 8-6 record, with the Bengals residing in first place by virtue of their head-to-head 41-17 win in Week 7 at Baltimore.
“I don’t really have any updates on that. That’s wait-and-see for all those guys,” Harbaugh said Wednesday. “Every single guy you’re going to ask me about is all going to be day-by-day. And we’ll just see where we are as we go.”
Backup Tyler Huntley completed 28 of 40 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers. He also rushed 13 times for 73 yards and two scores.
Jackson, the 2019 NFL MVP, has thrown for 2,882 yards with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 12 games this season. He also has rushed 767 yards and two scores.
Defensive end Calais Campbell (thigh), offensive guards Patrick Mekari (hand) and Ben Powers (foot) and fullback Patrick Ricard (back, knee) are also nursing injuries for the Ravens.
