Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (illness) active vs. Panthers
Lamar Jackson, the Ravens' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Panthers, is available after missing his most recent practise due to sickness.
Jackson had participated fully in Baltimore's workouts on Wednesday and Thursday, but was absent on Friday.
Jackson's absence from practise was blamed by coach John Harbaugh on a sickness that was simply too much fo
r him to handle.
On Friday, Harbaugh stated, "He'll be OK. He made an effort to attend practise, but he was simply too unwell.
Jackson was officially listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, but Harbaugh did stress at the time
that he expected Jackson to start because he should be fit by Sunday.
The Ravens would have suffered greatly without Jackson because he is one of the league's most effective
Jackson has 1,768 passing yards and 16 touchdowns as of Week 11, in addition to 635 rushing yards and tw
o more scores.
Mark Andrews, a tight end with the Ravens, is another significant active player for Sunday's game.
Andrews missed the Ravens' previous game before the bye week due to knee and shoulder ailments.
On Sunday, however, he'll be there with Jackson once more. Sunday's game between Baltimore (6-3) and Carolina (3-7) will begin at 1 p.m. ET.
