Lamar Jackson continues to miss significant time as his Baltimore Ravens ready for Super Wild Card Weekend. And unfortunately, it’s looking doubtful that the 2019 NFL MVP will suit up for the festivities.

Jackson sustained a PCL sprain in Week 13. The injury beleaguered him ever since, as he hasn’t seen the field at all. His Ravens still made the postseason, but Baltimore might have to go it without him during Super Wild Card Weekend.

“Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, still hampered by a knee injury, is not expected to return for Sunday’s AFC wild-card-round game against the Cincinnati Bengals after missing his second practice of the week Thursday,” Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Banner reported. Shaffer tweeted it was simply a new week with the same story.

So the Ravens will likely have to play rival Cincinnati without their star quarterback. It’s a shame, as Lamar Jackson vs. Joe Burrow is an extremely inviting and attractive matchup. Especially when the stakes are raised like they are.

Oddly enough, Lamar is 1-3 in postseason play to this point. Jackson has thrown for 900 yards, three touchdowns, and five interceptions in his four career playoff games.

Tyler Huntley, Jackson’s expected replacement, was “on schedule” according to the report as he too is dealing with an injury. 2022 draftee Anthony Brown is presumed as Huntley’s backup.
