Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback Lamar Jackson hasn't suited up since a Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns, a game he quickly exited with an ankle injury.

Lamar Jackson Injury Update

Heading into Week 18, Jackson is still nursing that same ankle injury. And the latest update isn't encouraging. Jackson didn't practice for the second straight day this week, further the doubt that he plays in Week 18.

The Ravens are 0-4 in their four recent games without Jackson. Needless to say, they need their starting quarterback healthy heading into the playoffs, if they are able to make it.

The Ravens are 5.5-point home favorites against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 18, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
