During Sunday afternoon’s narrow win over the Denver Broncos, the Baltimore Ravens got some very concerning news when star quarterback and former MVP Lamar Jackson left the game with an apparent knee injury. And while it looks like Jackson might have avoided a massive, season-ending injury, he definitely will miss some time.

According to NFL insider Adam Schefter of ESPN, Lamar Jackson suffered a sprained PCL during the win and could miss up to three weeks.

“Ravens’ QB Lamar Jackson suffered a sprained PCL during Sunday’s win over the Denver Broncos, per league sources. PCL injuries often sideline players 1-to-3 weeks and Ravens’ HC John Harbaugh already has said Jackson is “less likely” to play Sunday vs. the Steelers,” Schefter said in a Tweet on Tuesday afternoon.

It’s definitely a massive update on one of the NFL’s top overall players in a crucial part of the season for a playoff contender, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it

Though this will likely rule Lamar Jackson out for a few more games including this week’s matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, it does seem like he will be back for the NFL postseason should the Ravens clinch a spot in the upcoming playoffs.
