Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has been activated from the COVID-19 list, per the Ravens. Jackson tested positive the day before the Ravens first full team training camp practice and ended up missing eight practices. Jackson has deflected questions about whether he has been vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, citing that it is a private matter.

According to the new COVID-19 protocols, players who aren’t vaccinated and test positive must miss at least 10 days. Jackson has already tested positive for the virus last season and was forced to miss a big game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, which the Ravens ended up losing. He once again tested positive and again missed valuable time, but should be ready to go for the start of the season now that he’s come off the list.

The Ravens will look to get back on top of the AFC North after faltering to the Steelers last season. Staying COVID-19 free could be a part of that goal for their quarterback this season.
