Lamar Jackson Injured in Baltimore Ravens’ Victory over Cincinnati Bengals
Quarterback Lamar Jackson Suffers Injury in Thursday Night Football
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson sustained an injury during the first quarter of the team’s thrilling Week 11 Thursday Night Football win against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium.
After being tackled by Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson, Jackson remained on the turf and later sought medical attention in the team’s medical tent. However, he displayed resilience by jogging on the sideline after leaving the tent.
Despite the setback, Jackson showcased his determination and returned to the game on the Ravens’ next offensive series. However, during the third quarter, he limped off the field after a third-down run and was seen having his ankle wrapped on the sideline.
As Jackson was being evaluated during the first quarter, Ravens backup quarterback Tyler Huntley began warming up on the sideline, ready to step in if necessary.
“He reached down right away to the lower portion of his leg,” noted Prime Video analyst Kirk Herbstreit during the broadcast. “He’s not feeling good right now.”
Prior to the injury, Jackson had already accumulated 60 passing yards and 15 rushing yards. Despite the setback, he displayed remarkable resilience and finished the game with an impressive 264 passing yards, two touchdown passes, and 54 rushing yards on nine carries.
Earlier in the first quarter, Jackson’s top target, tight end Mark Andrews, also left the game after a tackle by Wilson. Andrews was subsequently declared out with an ankle injury.
