Lamar Jackson Knee Injury: What We Know About Baltimore Ravens Quarterback

Here's what we know about Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, who suffered a knee injury against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson suffered a knee injury while taking a sack against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Jackson walked gingerly off the field and into the locker room. Baltimore originally listed him as questionable to return, but they changed his status to “out” at the start of the second half.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson Suffers Injury

It’s unclear how serious Jackson’s injury is, but if it’s severe, his absence will have wide-ranging effects on the AFC playoff race. The Ravens are currently 7-4 and tied for first place in the AFC North with the Bengals, and they hold a head-to-head tiebreaker over Cincinnati.

The Bengals have a much more difficult schedule than the Ravens to end the season, but if Lamar is sidelined for an extended period of time, Joe Burrow and Co. will have the opportunity to slide ahead of them in the standings.

For now, Tyler Huntley has taken over under center for Jackson. The 2020 undrafted free agent made four starts in relief of Jackson last season, completing 65% of his passes for 1,081 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions. Like Lamar, Huntley is also a dynamic rushing threat who managed 294 yards and two scores on the ground in 2021.

If Huntley is forced to take over on a full-time basis, he’ll face a relatively easy slate to end the season. Baltimore will take on the Steelers in Week 14 before playing the Browns, Falcons, Steelers again, and Bengals to close out the campaign.

Jackson is the most significant injury concern for the Ravens, but Baltimore has been beset by health issues all season. Wide receiver Rashod Bateman is on injured reserve and out for the year while running JK Dobbins could return soon after his own stint on IR. Meanwhile, left tackle Ronnie Stanley has been sidelined by a knee injury for two games.
