Ravens QB Jackson sits out second straight practice
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson did not participate in practice again on Thursday, apparently nursing a sore knee and with an illness.
Jackson missed practice on Wednesday, reportedly for precautionary reasons. But illness was added to Thursday’s report released by the team.
CBS Sports reported that the reigning NFL MVP is expected to play for the Ravens (3-1) in Sunday’s home game against the Cincinnati Bengals (1-2-1).
Jackson was removed from Baltimore’s 31-17 victory in Washington with 4:24 remaining in the game. It was presumed that Jackson’s early exit was tied to the Ravens (3-1) holding a 21-point lead at the time.
The 23-year-old Jackson has thrown for 769 yards with seven touchdowns and one interception in four games this season. He has also rushed for 235 yards and a score.
Robert Griffin III took reps with the first-team. He and Trace McSorley are the Ravens’ backup quarterbacks.
