Baltimore Ravens QB, Lamar Jackson, suffered an ankle sprain when they lost 24-22, against Cleveland Browns. This raises a huge question over the last 4 games of the regular season for the Ravens.
Lamar Jackson is expected to be diagnosed with a low ankle sprain as stated by a source.
Lamar Jackson walked out of the locker room in a protective boot.
“We’ll look at it more and we’ll see where we’re at,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. Asked if Jackson has to undergo more testing, Harbaugh said, “We’ll see how he responds, we’ll see how it responds.”
Only 4 weeks are left in the regular season as the Ravens are leading the AFC North by a game, over the Bengals and Browns. They have one of the toughest remaining schedules: home against the Green Bay Packers, at the Bengals, and home against the Los Angeles Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Ravens Believe That They Can Make It Without Lamar Jackson
The Ravens believe that they can still make it to the playoffs even if Lamar Jackson is sidelined, as Tyler Huntley tried to pull off a marvelous comeback.
Lamar Jackson was hurt on the first play of the second quarter after throwing a short pass to tight end Mark Andrews. Browns linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah dove at the back of Jackson’s lower right leg. Jackson immediately fell to the ground and grabbed his ankle.
After spending four minutes in the medical tent, Jackson couldn’t put any weight on his right leg before getting carted into the locker room.
Last week, Jackson rolled his right ankle when he stepped on the yard marker after a run out of bounds. He had the ankle taped during the week.
Lamar Jackson has never missed a game because of injury in his 4-year NFL career. He has been sidelined twice by illness and sat out the 2019 season finale after Baltimore had already clinched the top seed that year.
