How hurt is Lamar Jackson? We won’t know until the Baltimore Ravens give him an official game status on Friday.
The Denver Broncos got defensive lineman Mike Purcell back as a full participant in practice on Thursday, but still no improvement for either Dalton Risner or Graham Glasgow which leaves the interior offensive line a major concern heading into the weekend. Running back Melvin Gordon also added an injury to the list that kept him limited in practice on Thursday.
There continues to be lingering rumors about Lamar Jackson’s health, but I think the Baltimore Ravens are just being cautious and leaving his status in doubt up until the last minute. Even Head Coach Vic Fangio doesn’t believe Jackson will sit on Sunday saying, “Not really. No. 1, I’m pretty damn sure he’ll play. They would run a similar offense with the other guy.”
Here is your full Thursday practice participation report for both teams.
