Lamar Jackson among Ravens that Missed Practice Thursday



Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson vs Steelers OLB T.J. Watt

If practice participation is any indication, the Baltimore Ravens may be short-handed in their matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. Former NFL MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson, tailback J.K. Dobbins, defensive lineman Calais Campbell, and cornerback Marcus Peters were all missing from the Ravens’ Thursday session.

Having injured his knee early on in a win over Denver in Week 13, Lamar Jackson hasn’t suited up for any of Baltimore’s previous three outings. The Ravens have gotten by without him, but haven’t scored more than 17 points in any of those contests.

Backup signal-caller Tyler Huntley has filled in for Jackson but hasn’t exactly lit it up through the air.

Dobbins was a key performer when Baltimore visited the Steelers earlier this month. He’s had two knee surgeries in as many years and had a 120-yard rushing output that day in his return to action.

Campbell also made an impact in that matchup, blocking a fourth-quarter field goal to go with his four total takedowns. Peters had just as many stops, along with a pass defended.

Brent Urban and Broderick Washington are the other defensive ends on the team’s depth chart. At running back, the Ravens also have Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and Kenyan Drake.

Brandon Stephens backs Peters up.

The Ravens have clinched a playoff spot and would likely be okay with having a fully-healthy Lamar Jackson back for when it most matters. A win for Baltimore would mean the Steelers’ hopes of playing past the regular season would be lost.
