The Baltimore Ravens were dealt a huge blow to kick things off in Week 13, as quarterback Lamar Jackson left Sunday's game in the first quarter with a knee injury and did not return. Though Baltimore rallied to get the win, the focus following the contest was on Jackson's health.

Head coach John Harbaugh provided the first update on Jackson's injury after the victory.

Harbaugh told reporters Jackson's recovery could be "days to weeks." The most important note is Jackson's ailment isn't considered season-ending, so the Ravens dodged a bullet on that front.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport added on Sunday the belief is Jackson suffered a knee sprain. Considering the wide range of outcomes, that's a relief it's not something more serious.

Though Jackson likely isn't out for the year, Baltimore could be without its starter for potentially several games if his rehab is on the longer side. The 8-4 Ravens are currently in the middle of a heated AFC North race with the Cincinnati Bengals, who would also move to 8-4 with a win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Jackson's health is a major story to watch heading into Week 14. Backup Tyler Huntley could get the start against the Pittsburgh Steelers if the former MVP is unable to suit up.
