Ravens’ Lamar Jackson tackles ‘back flare-up’, misses second straight practice

30 September (WNN) — Baltimore Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson failed to practice Thursday, marking just the second time in his four-year NFL career that he has practiced consistently in the regular season.

Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Jackson is currently dealing with a “little back flare-up.”

“I don’t think it’s anything serious,” Roman told reporters ahead of Thursday’s practice. “But we’ll just have to wait and see. I think he’ll be in good shape. We’ll wait and see.”

The Ravens (2-1) have one more full practice on Friday before traveling for their matchup against the undefeated Denver Broncos (3-0) on Sunday. Jackson was never sidelined for a game due to injury.

Thursday was only the ninth regular-season practice that Jackson missed – and just the third due to injury. Other absences were related to illnesses and a positive COVID-19 test.

Only the second time Jackson has missed back-to-back drills in the regular season came in week 5 last year. He was forced to sit out for a practice due to a knee injury, then missed an illness the next day.

Tyler Huntley, who didn’t leave Utah in 2020, is Jackson’s backup. Huntley has never started playing in the NFL.
