Ravens QB Lamar Jackson misses practice again; status for Sunday vs. Packers could go down to the wire

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed practice for the second straight day Thursday as he continues to recover from an ankle sprain he suffered against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Jackson is receiving treatment around the clock and his status for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers could go down to the wire.


“He’s a good healer, but we will have to see what the [doctors] say,” Roman said.

If Jackson can’t go, backup quarterback Tyler Huntley will start for the second time this season. Veteran quarterback Josh Johnson, who the Ravens signed off the New York Jets’ practice squad Wednesday, practiced Thursday.


Jackson is among 10 players who did not practice Thursday. Tight end Nick Boyle, defensive tackle Calais Campbell (thigh), fullback Patrick Ricard (back/knee) and offensive linemen Alejandro Villanueva (knee), Ben Powers (foot) and Tyre Phillips (illness) were out for second straight day.
