Baltimore Ravens’ practice on Wednesday looked a bit different than usual. Instead of their star signal-caller Lamar Jackson taking reps with the first team, it was back up Robert Griffin III serving under center.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jackson missed the practice as he is currently dealing with a knee injury. He adds that the injury “isn’t considered serious” and that the 23-year-old was held out for “precautionary reasons.”
It is unclear whether this injury will prevent Jackson from playing in Week 5 game against Cincinnati Bengals.
Jackson never missed an NFL game due to injury since making his first start with the Ravens in November 2018. He did, however, sat out the Week 17 contest in 2019 in order to rest for the playoffs.
After winning the NFL MVP award last season, Lamar Jackson is enjoying a solid start of 2020 in which he led Baltimore to a 3-1 record in the first four weeks. Jackson is currently completing a career-high 68.4 percent of his passes while throwing for 769 yards, seven touchdowns, and one interception.
Jackson is also averaging 6.0 rushing yards per carry, having rushed for a total of 235 yards and 1 TD this year.
