Ravens QB Jackson (knee) misses practice as precaution
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed practice on Wednesday with a knee injury, but he’s expected to be on the field with teammates in Baltimore on Thursday.
ESPN reported Jackson sat out for “precautionary reasons.”
The Ravens (3-1) have a home game Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals (1-2-1).
Jackson was available to reporters before practice. He said his focus this week is re-establishing the deep ball with second-year receiver Marquise Brown. Jackson did not mention his knee issue during the call.
“For sure, it’s still a work in progress,” Jackson said. “We want to be perfect on the field. We haven’t been connecting on our deep passes. But we’re going to get there. It’s football. We’ve been finding other ways to succeed. We’re going to get better at it.”
Jackson, the 2019 NFL MVP, and the Ravens are 31st in the NFL in passing yards per game (180.8).
“No, I’m not happy because I would like to connect with my guys on those passes,” Jackson said. “I feel like there are a lot of yards and touchdowns we’ve been leaving on the field when we don’t connect. That’s probably why our passing isn’t where it’s supposed to be. But I feel it’s early in the season.”
