Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson returned to practice Monday morning after a confusing two-day absence.
The NFL’s reigning Most Valuable Player missed practice Saturday with what assistant head coach David Culley called a tired arm, and after another no-show Sunday, coach John Harbaugh said it was a “soft-tissue thing.” ESPN reported Sunday night that Jackson was dealing with a minor groin injury.
Jackson was not especially mobile during the “shells” practice (shoulder pads and helmets), but he had a solid day passing.
“He was back,” Harbaugh said after practice in a video conference call. “He looked good. He had a good practice, so we’re moving forward, like I said.”
Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters also returned after missing two days with a soft-tissue injury.
Running back Justice Hill, who’s dealing with his own soft-tissue injury, did not practice. Defensive end Calais Campbell was out with a maintenance day, and wide receiver Chris Moore (finger), tight end Eli Wolf, running back and returner Kenjon Barner and cornerback Josh Nurse were also absent.
Harbaugh said he hopes Wolf will return “in the next couple of days” and indicated that the team’s other injuries aren’t serious.
