Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson posted on social media Thursday night that he would be unable to go in the team’s Wild Card game on Sunday. Jackson called his knee “unstable” and worse than originally thought. He has missed several weeks with a PCL injury and the Ravens have struggled without their star quarterback. This is the first time that Jackson has addressed his injury since going down in early December. Baltimore is set to play the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night at 8:15 p.m. EST. Tyler Huntley is expected to start for the team with Jackson out.
remains unstable. I’m still in good spirits, as I continue with treatments on the road to recovery. 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. ??

This season with the Baltimore Ravens, Lamar Jackson completed 203 passes for 2,242 yards, 17 touchdowns, and seven interceptions on 326 attempts. Jackson also ran the ball 112 times for 764 yards and three rushing touchdowns. Jackson is a vital part of the team and the Ravens’ odds to win have gone down with him now ruled out of the game.
Lamar Jackson is set to be a free agent this offseason and the Ravens are expected to franchise tag him. Working out a long-term deal is the ideal goal for both sides. Before then the Ravens have to try and win a Playoff game without their starting quarterback. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Jackson the best in his recovery and eventual return to the football field.
