Lamar Jackson has been sidelined for more than a month with a knee injury, but the Ravens are still holding out hope that their franchise quarterback will be back for the postseason. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman told ESPN’s Jamison Hensley that he wouldn’t put it past Jackson to play in the first round of the playoffs.
“He’s a special guy,” Roman said. “I think if somebody’s got a chance to do it, he does.”
“I would say, I would bet on him. I would definitely bet on him,” Roman added. “It’s not an ideal situation, obviously, but it’s a great opportunity when he does come back to get him back in the lineup and get moving.”
Jackson last saw the field on December 4th and hasn’t been spotted at practice since. The Ravens have kept Jackson’s progress close to their vest, with the coaching staff merely admitting that the QB could be back at some point this season. The QB wasn’t practicing again on Friday, and he had a “hitch in his walk” as recently as last Sunday, per Hensley. The coaching staff will obviously get more clarity on Jackson’s condition once he returns to the practice field, with John Harbaugh saying the team was “hopeful” that they’d get a look at the QB next week.
Meanwhile, backup (and fill-in) quarterback Tyler Huntley continues to be limited at practice with shoulder and wrist injuries. If neither of the Ravens’ top two QBs are good to go on Sunday against the Bengals, undrafted rookie Anthony Brown would get the start.

I don’t know how reliable of what I’ve been told is but I’ve heard that Lamar’s injury hasn’t been a passionate treatment like “I’m getting treatment 3x a day to get better.” And that might not be accurate but you haven’t heard from Lamar that he’s doing everything in his power to get better. And the Ravens are completely frustrated with him.
So you heard something that might have no basis in reality.
Be patient Oooof the story will come out.
“Verification of my unsourced story will come later, so believe me now” is always trustworthy, sure.
Lamar ruled out what I’d tell you my guy he wasn’t prepared to play. “Has not practiced since the injury”. This is what it is.
You were claiming a lot more than that.
Sure we can revisit this thread after their season ends this weekend.
You won’t have any sources when you assassinate his character then either.
Should be paid to be his agent the way you’re protecting him. The reports will leak don’t you worry.
Where you at my guy “can’t give 100% to my guys” we didn’t have to wait until this weekend?
Meaning he’s not at full health. You still made a bunch of claims with no source, which remains true.
Sure, lets say you’re right he so commited to Baltimore and is rushing back. I think ideally Lamar would probably like to go back to Miami and play down there who doesn’t want to play with Tyreek Hill? That lends itself does Miami entertain trading Tua or trying to get another quarterback for Tua?
Miami can’t afford a big QB deal and they don’t have a first to trade for Jackson anyway. No one other than maybe Miami is pinning their hopes on Tua coming off this season.
$45m for a person that plays 70% of the season, no thanks.
Baltimore refuses to give him long term security. Lamar would be stupid to come back before he’s 100% ready. Not sure why that’s so hard for anyone to understand. That being said, I wouldnt pay him what he’s asking for either, even tho I think he’s 100% correct in demanding it.
Well said all around
If he comes back and continues to play the QB position like a RB smh. then it’s a matter of time before he blows out his knee again
I’m sure you would be thrilled.
Your a cynicle son of a mother aren’t you
Just basic pattern recognition of your comments. And it’s spelled cynical.
Wonder if he’s kicking himself for not taking the offer over the summer. Might not be offered as much now. RB with bad knee doesn’t bode well
He’s getting 45.4 next season. He’ll be fine.
The Ravens only playoff win with Lamar came in a game where he rushed for 136 yards and he won’t be able to duplicate that effort coming off a knee injury. Of course you can never count out a team that has the leagues best kicker.
I can’t see how he’s going to win the first playoff game without have practiced or seen game action since December 4th.
He peaked in 2019, something I recall saying after the 2019 season. Ravens are in a tough spot in regards to how to value him in the future, this injury only complicates that further.
