Ravens QB Lamar Jackson could play against Packers despite ankle sprain, coach John Harbaugh says

Quarterback Lamar Jackson is dealing with an ankle sprain that will have the Ravens in wait-and-see mode as they prepare to host the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon, coach John Harbaugh said.

“It’s not a high ankle sprain, which is good news,” Harbaugh said Monday. “And we’ll just have to see what it is from there and how it feels this week going forward.”

He said it’s too early to know if Jackson will practice Wednesday but did not rule him out for the Packers game. “The plans are right now, in my mind, for Lamar to be out there,” Harbaugh said. “So we’ll see where it goes this week. If he can go, he’ll go. If not, Tyler [Huntley] will be the quarterback.”

Jackson limped off the field in the second quarter of Sunday’s 24-22 loss to the Cleveland Browns and left the field on a cart. He was ruled out at halftime. The NFL Network reported that Jackson had an MRI on his ankle.

Harbaugh said he’s not aware of Jackson aggravating a previous injury.

With Jackson out, Huntley rallied the Ravens from a 24-3 deficit to within two points and had a shot at a game-winning drive before Browns cornerback Denzel Ward stopped wide receiver Rashod Bateman short of the sticks on fourth down.

The loss dropped the Ravens to 8-5, but they retained a one-game lead in the AFC North.
