Following an effortless 31-17 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 4, the Baltimore Ravens look to keep momentum going against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. However, Ravens fans were given a scare early this week with Lamar Jackson's injury situation, as the star quarterback missed back-to-back practices on Wednesday and Thursday.

Thankfully, it's looking like the absences were mostly precautionary. He should be good to go against Cincinnati on Sunday.

Lamar Jackson Injury Update

Jackson was held out of a couple practices early in the week, as he reportedly was nursing a knee injury and a non-COVID related sickness. However, he is back at practice on Friday and said himself that he's 100%.

The Baltimore quarterback is coming off decent Week 4 performance that saw him throw for 193 yards and 2 touchdowns. He added 53 rushing yards and a touchdown on 7 carries.

The Ravens are heavy favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, so it could be another easy win for Jackson on Sunday. He's the QB1 in our Week 5 PPR rankings.
