With a back injury, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was unable to practice on Wednesday.
Jackson, 24, has a 2-1 record with the Ravens so far this season. He’s thrown for 761 yards and three touchdowns with three interceptions, as well as 251 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
You could argue that Jackson is the only reason Baltimore is 2-1 rather than 0-3, which was always going to happen. That only emphasizes how important he is to the Ravens’ overall success. On Thursday afternoon, offensive coordinator Greg Roman provided an update on Jackson’s back injury. It doesn’t appear to be a serious situation.
“I don’t think it’s serious,” Roman said, according to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley . “But we’ll just have to wait and see,” says the narrator. I believe he will be in good shape. We’ll have to wait and see. ”
Ravens OC Greg Roman said Lamar Jackson is dealing with “a little back flare-up.”
“I don’t think it’s anything serious,” Roman said. “But we’re just going to have to kind of wait and see. I think he’s going to be in good shape. We’ll wait and see.”

The Ravens will need Lamar Jackson to be at his best this Sunday against the Broncos, who are undefeated. Going into the weekend, his health will be a major storyline.
Through the first three weeks of the season, Jackson’s strong play has overshadowed Baltimore’s lengthy injury list. The Ravens are without their top two running backs, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who are both injured and out for the season. The Ravens are dangerous as long as Jackson stays healthy.
His health does not appear to be a certainty this week. Before Sunday’s game, we should have more information on Jackson’s back injury.
The Ravens face the Broncos at 4:25 p.m. on Sunday.
