Ravens QB Lamar Jackson still sidelined at practice; DL Calais Campbell, CB Marcus Peters also absent – The Denver Post


Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was missing at practice again Tuesday, limiting his possible turnaround time for the team’s game Saturday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Jackson hasn’t practiced since suffering a knee injury early in a Week 13 win over the Denver Broncos. Coach John Harbaugh declined to comment Monday on Jackson’s recovery timetable.

“I think I’m going to climb behind the barricade of: It’s probably not the time to put a lot of information out there on our injuries, just for competitive purposes,” he said. “So we’re just going to let that develop and see where we go with it and not try to walk the tightrope of what we say.”

If Jackson doesn’t practice this week, Tyler Huntley would be expected to start his third straight game. He’s struggled as a passer since replacing Jackson, going 52-for-74 (70.3%) for 413 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions (72.6 passer rating).

Seven other Ravens were missing at practice Tuesday. Defensive lineman Calais Campbell (knee) and cornerback Marcus Peters (calf), who left Saturday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns with injuries, were not present. Running back J.K. Dobbins, left tackle Ronnie Stanley, right guard Kevin Zeitler, right tackle Morgan Moses and outside linebacker Justin Houston were also not participating.

For Atlanta, only reserve offensive lineman Chuma Edoga was limited in practice Tuesday.

Extra points

  • Rookie inside linebacker Josh Ross was designated to return from injured reserve. Ross, the only undrafted rookie to earn a spot on the team’s initial 53-man roster, was placed on injured reserve after suffering a foot injury in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins.
  • The Ravens signed former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mike Thomas, who was released last month after catching two passes for 38 yards in 10 games this season. In a corresponding move, practice squad guard Zack Johnson was released.
