Lamar Jackson dealing with groin injury

NFL: Baltimore Ravens-Training Camp Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has missed two consecutive practices due to a groin injury, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN:

In addition, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported that Jackson’s absence has been precautionary:

After Sunday’s practice, head coach John Harbaugh revealed that Jackson, running back Justice Hill, and cornerback Marcus Peters were all dealing with soft-tissue injuries.

Jackson is expected to return to practice on Monday, so the injury appears to be minor.

Baltimore’s backup quarterback options are veteran Robert Griffin III and 2019 sixth-round pick Trace McSorley. Griffin started one game last season finishing with 11-21 passing for 96 yards and an interception; he also rushed for 50 yards on eight carries.

Jackson is coming off a historic season. He unanimously won the NFL MVP Award and broke the single-season rushing yards record for a quarterback. His high-level of play ultimately helped lead the Ravens to a league-best 14-2 record.
