Lamar Jackson leaves practice with quad issue

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson left Wednesday’s practice early after sustaining a quad injury during the session.

Jackson was officially listed as limited, marking the third consecutive week he has appeared on the injury report. He missed the Wednesday practice last week with a hip injury.

A Ravens spokesperson said Jackson left practice early to get treatment from trainers. As a result, Jackson did not meet with reporters after practice as scheduled and will meet with the media Thursday or Friday, the team said.

Jackson has played in all 11 games this season after missing five games with injuries in 2021. Previously, he had missed only one game due to injury in his first 57 games in the NFL. Jackson is 12th in the league in rushing yards with 755. He’s thrown for 2,231 yards and 17 touchdowns against seven interceptions.

The Ravens, 7-4 and coming off a frustrating loss at Jacksonville last week, host the Denver Broncos (3-8) on Sunday.

In addition to Jackson, TE Isaiah Likely (ankle), S Kyle Hamilton (knee) and OT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) were also limited Wednesday. Three players did not participate due to illness — TE Nick Boyle, OT Daniel Faalele and OT Patrick Mekari. Cornerback Marlon Humphrey missed practice with an ankle injury.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) misses Friday practice

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed Friday’s practice with an illness, but coach John Harbaugh said Jackson will play Sunday against the visiting Carolina Panthers.

“He’ll be fine,” Harbaugh said. “He tried to get to practice but was just too sick.”

Harbaugh didn’t discuss the nature of Jackson’s illness.

Jackson, 25, has led the Ravens to a 6-3 record and first place in the AFC North this season. He has completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 1,768 yards and 16 touchdowns. He’s added 635 rushing yards and two scores.

2022 NFL MVP futures lean Lamar Jackson, Jalen Hurts

Lamar Jackson leads the NFL in touchdown passes, passer rating and is fourth in rushing, the type of stuff MVP seasons are built upon.

Betting on himself in contract negotiations with the Baltimore Ravens, Jackson has plenty of others betting on him, too.

Jackson closed the gap in MVP futures betting to +700 (FanDuel), behind only Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs (+600, FanDuel) and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen (+300).

There’s another QB in the picture: Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts is also +700 (FanDuel) for the undefeated Eagles.

Jackson pushed the Ravens past the New England Patriots in a 37-26 shootout on the heels of a 42-38 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2. Credit Jackson for keeping the Ravens rolling while the defense hasn’t been up to typical standards.

He had a double-triple — more than 100 yards rushing and passing — for the 14th game in his career.

In three games, Jackson has 10 TD passes and a rating of 119.0. After rushing for 119 yards and a score against Miami, he added 107 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Patriots. Jackson, who won the 2019 MVP award, is averaging 9.3 yards per carry this season.

DraftKings bumped Hurts (+600) ahead of Jackson (+700), who is even with Mahomes. Allen is the DK favorite for MVP at +300. Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is No. 5 on their list at +1400.

Hurts and Jackson are tied at +700 at Caesars Sportsbook behind Mahomes +550 and Allen +300. Tagovailoa is +1400 at Caesars followed by Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (+1600) and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (+1800).

Week 1 darling Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings has settled at +6000 at Caesars and +7500 at FanDuel, the same odds available for Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, Saints quarterback Jameis Winston and Colts quarterback Matt Ryan.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ‘feeling good’ but passes on practice throws

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson wore a protective sleeve and didn’t throw during Wednesday’s practice, instead making an appearance on the injury report.

Jackson and coach John Harbaugh insist all is well even though Jackson was listed as limited in practice and wore an arm sleeve in the portion of the workout open to media. Jackson’s injury is to his right elbow according to the first injury report of the week from Baltimore.

“I’m feeling good. I’m going to be out there Sunday,” Jackson told reporters Wednesday when asked if he threw at all. “No. I’m going to throw Sunday. A lot Sunday.”

The Ravens (1-1) travel to New England to play the Patriots (1-1) in Week 3.

Jackson threw 29 times in Sunday’s loss to the Miami Dolphins. He completed 21 for 318 yards and ran another nine times for 119 yards.

Harbaugh said Jackson is dealing with “normal, course of the season type thing.”

Jackson has an admirer who’ll be standing across the field on Sunday. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was asked Wednesday if Jackson has answered all of the pre-draft concerns.

“Without a doubt,” Belichick said. “He’s the type of player that’s an MVP candidate. … Wait until we see what his contract is, that will answer them.”

Ravens wide receiver Devin Duvernay (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, joining cornerback Marlon Humphrey (groin) on the injury report as a DNP. However, running back JK Dobbins was a full participant and could play for the first time since last September.
