Will Ravens QB Lamar Jackson play against Bengals? Reviewing the latest injury report for the TNF clash

The Ravens are set to host the Cincinnati Bengals in a crucial Thursday night clash, aiming to sweep the season series and solidify their lead in the AFC North. The AFC North competition is intense, with all teams boasting winning records. 

The Ravens’ recent 33-31 loss to the Browns has heightened the significance of each game. However, many players of both teams, including Lamar Jackson, who recently received a weird gift from a fan, are injured and there is uncertainty about their participation in the game.

Ravens vs Bengals injury report

According to a recent update, Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, who was praised by Aaron Rodgers is completely fine after a knee scare. He will play against the Bengals. The QB expressed the team’s hunger for victory, emphasizing that every game is a must-win, especially after their close division loss to the Browns.

“Every game for us is a must win for us, not just because it’s a division game,” Jackson said. “But I believe our team is definitely a lot hungrier just from what happened Sunday in a division loss in a close game.”

However, according to the injury report, other crucial players on the team, including LB Trenton Simpson (concussion) and T Ronnie Stanley (knee), won’t be able to play. 

The team’s CB Marlon Humphrey (calf) is doubtful and WR Devin Duvernay (hamstring), G John Simpson (illness/shoulder), OLB Kyle Van Noy (groin), and S Daryl Worley (hamstring) are also questionable.

Ravens’ T Ronnie Stanley’s absence continues, with Patrick Mekari expected to start. Marlon Humphrey’s doubtful status adds to the defensive challenges.

Similarly, many players for the Bengals are also injured. WR Tee Higgins (hamstring), DE Sam Hubbard (ankle), and WR Andrei Iosivas (knee) won’t play and WR Charlie Jones (thumb) is questionable. 

The Bengals will miss WR Tee Higgins and DE Sam Hubbard, affecting their offensive and defensive capabilities.
