Timeline Placed On Baltimore Ravens Quarterback To Return

The Baltimore Ravens are currently leading the AFC North, but with a red-hot Cincinnati Bengals on their heels, they'll need to be perfect in the coming weeks, and that begins with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14, in a game which they'll have to win without starting Quarterback Lamar Jackson.

In the Week 13 victory over the Denver Broncos, Jackson suffered a strained PCL, which is an injury that is usually accompanied by a 1-3 week recovery period, and while many expected him to return in Week 15, the Ravens have now placed a new timeline on his return.

That timeline will likely see Jackson not returning to Baltimore's lineup until Christmas Eve against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16, giving him three weeks in the regular season to confirm Baltimore's position in the playoffs, whether it be as AFC North Champions or an AFC Wild Card team.
