Ravens send QB Lamar Jackson home with non-COVID illness

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was sent home by the team today due to illness. The quarterback has not tested positive for COVID-19, coach John Harbaugh said.

Starting center Bradley Bozeman is also dealing with a non-COVID-19 sickness and will also not practice today. Harbaugh did not sound overly concerned about the two key players’ statuses moving forward.

“It’s that time of year, we’ve got some sickness,” Harbaugh said. “Lamar and Bozeman are both sick, so you won’t see them out there today. They got sent home. It’s not COVID, it’s just sick.”

Jackson tested positive for COVID-19 last November, which caused him to miss a division game against the Steelers. He had the virus for a second time over the summer, causing him to miss the Ravens’ first week of training camp. He has declined to comment on his vaccination status.

Jackson has completed 64.4% of his throws for 2,447 yards, 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions. His 271.9 yards per game have on pace set to shatter his career-high passing mark of 3,127 yards, which was set back during his MVP season in 2019. He also remains extremely dangerous as a rushing threat with 639 yards and two touchdowns on the season.
