Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson suffered a PCL sprain against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Schefter says that Jackson could miss anywhere between 1 to 3 weeks with the injury. If that is the case, it would mean that Jackson would miss the game against the Steelers on Sunday, but he could return for their second matchup in Baltimore on January 1st.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh stated that it was appearing ‘less likely’ that Jackson would suit up against the Steelers. If that is the case, backup Tyler Huntley would take over for Jackson. Huntley started last year’s game in Baltimore against the Steelers. Pittsburgh won that game 16-13 in overtime over Huntley.
Lamar Jackson, if he is out, would have now missed four games against the Steelers due to different circumstances. When he has played, Pittsburgh has won out a good deal of the time, as they have won four straight against the Ravens. But losing Jackson would be a huge blow to the Ravens as they try to keep their top spot in the AFC North away from a Bengals team that is gaining their stride.
The Steelers and Ravens will play each other at 1 P.M. on Sunday at Acrisure Stadium.
