Lamar Jackson, Several Ravens Starters Miss Practice Wednesday



Steelers vs. Ravens Lamar Jackson

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed his 10th straight team practice on Wednesday, putting his status for Sunday’s Week 17 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in doubt.

Jackson has been out with a knee injury, reportedly a PCL strain, and has missed the Ravens’ last three games. Tyler Huntley is in line to make his fourth straight start if Jackson cannot play.

Head coach John Harbaugh was extremely coy about Jackson’s status when asked on Monday, saying only that “we’ll just have to see,” when asked about whether or not Jackson will practice this week. Harbaugh did say that he does expect Jackson to return this season.

The Ravens have already clinched a playoff spot, but are still fighting for an AFC North title and the home playoff game that comes along with it. They are a game behind the Cincinnati Bengals, but a Ravens win and a Bengals loss this weekend would set up a winner-take-all Week 18 game between those teams.

Jackson wasn’t the only member of the Ravens squad to sit out on Wednesday. Starting cornerback Marcus Peters and defensive lineman Calais Campbell — who had a crucial blocked field goal in Baltimore’s Week 14 win over Pittsburgh — also did not practice in the portion of the session open to Baltimore media.

Both the Steelers and Ravens will release full practice participation reports later this afternoon. This story will be updated.
