Despite Lack Of Throwing At Practice, Ravens QB Will Play Sunday

News came out on Wednesday that Ravens Quarterback Lamar Jackson was wearing a sleeve on his right arm, and didn't throw during the media portion of practice, and rumours began flying about whether or not No. 8 would be available for Week 3. Today however, head coach John Harbaugh confirmed that Jackson will be ready to go on the weekend, and that the sleeve and softer training day was a planned precautionary thing, which will be a massive sigh of relief for Ravens fans.

Through two weeks, Jackson has shown everyone, especially the Ravens front office that he is more than ready to get paid, as he's been playing at an MVP level, despite the disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2. Jackson has almost 700 all purpose yards to go along with 7 Touchdown's through two weeks, and if he can continue at this pace, he could be readying to have a career year as Baltimore's starting QB.

Lamar has thrown the ball a lot through two weeks, so it makes sense for the Ravens to rest him, and ahead of the New England Patriots battle awaiting them on Sunday, they'll need to be at full strength, ready to go to take their season to a 2-1 start.
