Friday PM Update: Jackson is officially listed as doubtful for the matchup against the Steelers.

Friday AM Update: Jackson didn’t practice on Friday. Barring an unexpected turnaround, it seems like Jackson will miss this weekend’s divisional game. We will get some clarity when the final injury report comes out Friday afternoon.

Thursday update: Jackson wasn’t practicing on Thursday, per Jamison Hensley. This is not a surprise, as he is likely out this week and possibly next, but since he’s not going on I.R., he will continue to see injury report designations for the Ravens QB.

Wednesday Update: Jackson was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday’s practice. This doesn’t come as a shock as it is the first practice session of the week, but you’d like to see him log at least a limited practice by Friday if he hopes to play this weekend.

Tuesday update: Jackson has suffered a sprained PCL and it is an injury that often sidelines a player 1-to-3 weeks, per Adam Schefter. John Harbaugh had previously said Jackson was anywhere from day-to-day to week-to-week.

Monday update: Head coach Jim Harbaugh was not optimistic that Lamar Jackson would be able to play this week, so we can expect Tyler Huntley to get the work. He has some fantasy upside due to his rushing ability.

Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens might have avoided a long-term injury, as the quarterback appears to be dealing with a sprain, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport says that if he does miss time, which he very well could, it shouldn’t be much more than a game, if at all.

Jackson is getting more tests done on Monday, so he’s not out of the woods just yet, but the initial thoughts are that it is a mild sprain. The Ravens did add Brett Hundley to go with Ravens backup Tyler Huntley, but that appears to be a short term move at this point.

Fantasy football implications for Week 14

Tyler Huntley threw two interceptions in relief of Jackson, but also led the team to a win and looked pretty good when not giving the ball away. If he gets the start against the Steelers, he has fantasy upside due to his running ability.
