Ravens Notes: Robert Griffin III, Lamar Jackson, Injuries

Robert Griffin III

Ravens HC John Harbaugh recently mentioned that the decision to keep two or three quarterbacks will “go right to the wire,” which leaves Robert Griffin III squarely on the roster bubble heading into their preseason finale.

“[T]here’s no pressure,” Griffin told reporters after Saturday’s game, via Pro Football Talk. “I should say there is no pressure that I’m going to apply to myself to go out and perform like I have been and I know how, and the coaches have taught me within the system. I know the team we’ll be facing is my former team that I played for and was drafted by. There will probably be a story line around that. But aside from that, it’s just go out, play ball and have fun, and continue to do what we’ve been doing, and let the coaches make the decisions at the end of the day.

It’s at least possible that RGIII could be a trade candidate for a team in need of a backup quarterback, especially if there are any injuries next week.

Lamar Jackson

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said that Saturday’s preseason matchup with the Dolphins was rookie QB Lamar Jackson‘sbreaking out in a game.

I think today was his breaking out in a game,” Harbaugh said, per Armando Salguero. “We’ve seen it in practice where he’s done some really good things, but we hadn’t really seen it in a game yet. And today just fell into place for him a little bit.
