Ravens QB Lamar Jackson Reportedly Dealing With Bone Bruise, Not Ankle Sprain

According to Adam Schefter, Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is dealing with a bone bruise in his ankle, not a sprain as has been reported.

Jackson started moving around better toward the end of the week of practice, per Schefter. While the team was always pessimistic he’d be able to play this week against the Packers, that does provide hope that his absence will be brief. 

The initial concern was that Jackson suffered a high-ankle sprain last week against the Browns, which would have almost assuredly been a multi-week injury. 

Jackson, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Ravens back in 2018. He’s entering the fourth year of his four-year, $9,471,652 contract that included a $5,968,472 signing bonus.

The Ravens picked up Jackson’s fifth-year option that will cost them $23 million fully guaranteed for the 2022 season, but won’t prevent them from working on an extension. 

In 2021, Jackson has appeared in 12 games for the Ravens and completed 64.4 percent of his passes for 2,882 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He has also rushed for 767 yards and two touchdowns.

We’ll have more on Jackson as the news is available.
