In what's been the best news of training camp, the Baltimore Ravens saw their star quarterback Lamar Jackson return to his first full-team practice after a trying bout with COVID-19.

The 24-year-old dual threat QB was diagnosed with COVID back on July 27 and subsequently missed the first 10 days of Baltimore's training camp. However, he was in full practice mode on Saturday, which is the most welcomed news for Ravens fans.

According to head coach John Harbaugh, his quarterback's COVID situation wasn't easy. "COVID is tough and he had symptoms. He had a lot of symptoms."

Aside from the scare, Ravens fans can now rest easy. Harbaugh went on to explain that Jackson took very good care of himself despite the symptoms. Jackson even performed quite well in team drills, going 11-for-19 (with four drops) while "looking like himself" with throws on the run and scrambling from the pocket.

As has been the norm the past few years, the Ravens will lean heavily on their dynamic playmaker. Last season, Jackson finished ninth in the league in rushing yards (1,005) with another 2,757 yards through the air and 33 total touchdowns.

Right now, the Ravens own the fourth-best odds (+1400) to win Super Bowl 56, according to the latest NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
