The Baltimore Ravens have been preparing for their battle with the Cincinnati Bengals ahead of their Wild Card round matchup this weekend, and are still unsure on Lamar Jackson’s status going into it. 

In the regular season, the sides split the season series one game apiece, with Baltimore winning the Week 5 meeting, meanwhile Cincinatti won the Week 18 clash in the final game of the (regular) season.

Ravens quarterback missed the Week 18 match, as he’s been injured since Week 13 after suffering an injury to his knee against the Denver Broncos.

There’s not been too much said regarding his status for this weekend, however Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Jackson faces an “uphill battle” to play in the Wild Card round.

In a follow up tweet in reply to Rapoport’s, his colleague Mike Garafolo said that Jackson “hasn’t felt right” which is a worry for Ravens fans, who were hopeful that Jackson would be back for this crunching fixture.

A return to the field for Jackson would give the Ravens a huge boost going into their game against last year’s Super Bowl runners up.
