Lamar Jackson is in danger of missing a few games.
After the Baltimore Ravens game against the Denver Broncos this week, Jackson’s diagnosis has finally been revealed.

Jackson has suffered a PCL strain, and will likely not be able to play in Ravens upcoming matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In the relief of Jackson, backup quarterback Tyler Huntley did enough to secure the win, going 27/32 for 187 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception.
Huntley also added a rushing touchdown of his own.
The Remaining Schedule
To finish the regular season, the Ravens are slated to play the Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons, Steelers again, and the Cincinnati Bengals.
With any luck, Jackson will only miss this week’s game against the Steelers.
The Ravens are tied with the Bengals for the division lead and are desperately working to hold on to that lead.
While Huntley is a serviceable backup for the Ravens, they have the best chances to win when Jackson is under center.
The Bengals have a similar schedule to finish the year.
They are scheduled to face off against the Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, and of course, the Ravens.
Both teams are looking to make a strong push to finish off the season.
Because they are so tightly knit in the division race, every game matters.
The Ravens are hoping that Jackson can come back soon from this PCL strain, and can help them play their most competitive brand of football.
