Ravens’ QB Lamar Jackson posts heartbreaking injury update as he is set to miss Sunday’s wild-card game vs Bengals

The Baltimore Ravens will be without franchise quarterback Lamar Jackson when they face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Head coach John Harbaugh informed reporters on Friday that “it seems like it’s going to be Tyler [Huntley] on Sunday,” as Jackson recovers from a knee injury suffered last week against the Broncos.

Lamar Jackson posted an update on his injury in Twitter. The Ravens QB expressed his gratitude towards everyone who checked on him. Jackson also explained that the PCL injury he received against the Broncos in Week 13 is a “grade 2 sprain on the borderline of”. He also has inflammation around his knee.

“I’m still in good spirits, as I continue with treatments on the road to recovery,” Jackson tweeted. “I wish I could be out there with my guys more than anything but I can’t give a 100% of myself to my guys and fans. I’m still hopeful we still have a chance.”

Jackson injured his knee during the Ravens’ 10-9 win against the Broncos in Week 13. On the final play of the fourth quarter, he was sacked by Denver pass rusher Jonathon Cooper. Jackson left the field as a result of the injury and was treated on the sideline before returning to the locker room. Tyler Huntley took his spot on the first play of the second quarter. As Jackson’s comeback was initially deemed uncertain due to the injury, he was ruled out of the game at halftime.

Jackson has not practiced since his injury. He remains optimistic about a return, but the ambiguity in his remarks suggests that no one knows if it will happen this postseason. Fans are hopeful about his speedy recovery and hurried return to the field.
