The Baltimore Ravens opened training camp this week and are without quarterback Lamar Jackson for the time being. The 2019 MVP is dealing with a “COVID-related case,” per ESPN. Adam Schefter and Jamison Hensley are reporting the league is “trying to process” the issue.
Jackson tested positive over Thanksgiving last year and now seems to have a questionable test result. It is not clear if Jackson got vaccinated prior to training camp. He missed the team’s Week 12 game last season against the Steelers after an outbreak led to at least one Ravens player reporting a positive COVID-19 test for 10 straight days. Robert Griffin III started the game and Trace McSorley got some playing time.
McSorley and Tyler Huntley are the two primary backups on the roster and ESPN is reporting they will split the majority of QB snaps at training camp while Jackson is out. The team has signed Kenj Bahar as an additional camp body.
