Status of injured Ravens QB Lamar Jackson still up in the air; ‘We’ll just have to see,’ says coach John Harbaugh

With the status of injured Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson still up in the air, coach John Harbaugh said “we’ll just have to see” when asked if Jackson would practice ahead of the Ravens’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. .

Harbaugh was more explicit when asked on Monday if he was optimistic about Jackson playing again this season, replying, “Of course, of course.”

Jackson hasn’t practiced or played since leaving the Ravens’ Week 13 win over the Denver Broncos with a knee injury. The Ravens won three of four games with Tyler Huntley as their primary quarterback and clinched a playoff berth with a 17-9 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Christmas Eve. They’re one game behind the Cincinnati Tigers in the AFC North but still have a chance of winning the division title with Week 18 in Cincinnati looming.

Several national media outlets reported that Jackson might try to work out ahead of the game against the Falcons, though Harbaugh never provided a timeline for his return. Jackson was on the sidelines, cheering on his teammates during the victory.
