The absence of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson off the field during the portion of Baltimore’s Friday practice open to the media raised some eyebrows. However, following the workout, head coach John Harbaugh assured Jackson he would be available for the game against the Panthers. According to Harbaugh, Jackson was absent due to illness but should be OK to play. “Tried to get to practice, but was just too sick,” Harbaugh said of Jackson, according to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. Harbaugh also stated that the availability of tight end Mark Andrews might be known on Sunday. He’s been hampered by shoulder and knee problems. The entire injury report for the Ravens’ game against the Panthers on Sunday will be revealed later on Friday.
Lamar Jackson’s illness Leads To Miss His Practice:
With an illness, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed Friday’s practice but is expected to play, according to coach John Harbaugh. “He’ll be alright,” Harbaugh assured them. “He tried to come to practice, but he was too sick.” Due to sickness, Jackson missed the Week 11 game against the Chicago Bears last year. He missed his first practice of the season on Friday. This season, Jackson has played every offensive action for the AFC North-leading Ravens, who are double-digit favorites over visiting Carolina. If Jackson cannot play, the Ravens will turn, who went 1-3 in four starts last season, winning once in Chicago. Anthony Brown, the practice squad quarterback, might potentially be activated.
Other Players Practiced Fullday:
Ending on a cliff, Mark Andrews worked out thoroughly on Friday, but running back Gus Edwards was limited for the third day in a row. Both are doubtful for Sunday’s game. Andrews, the team’s leading receiver, “had quite a few reps” on Friday, according to Harbaugh. He was limited Wednesday and Thursday after missing the Ravens’ Week 9 triumph against the New Orleans Saints. Edwards, who missed the entire season last year due to a torn ACL, now has a knee ailment. “Of course, I expected those guys to return, but I don’t want to get ahead,” Harbaugh said Friday. Rookie cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis did not practice for the second day and is listed as questionable.
Panthers Not Practicing Now:
P.J. Walker, starting defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis, and safety Juston Burris have all been ruled out by the Panthers. Safety Myles Hartsfield, who has created a few games this season like Burris, is questionable after not practicing this week. Both starting cornerback Jaycee Horn and starting fullback Giovanni Ricci are doubtful, but they were total participants. Starting safety Jeremy Chinn, according to Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks, could be a game-time decision. Chinn has been out since Week 4 due to a hamstring issue. He was supposed to return on November 8 but has yet to be activated.
