Lamar Jackson in concussion protocol after teammate accidentally kicked him in head

Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson

Left for dead a few weeks ago, the Baltimore Ravens are up off the deck, and their rookie quarterback gets a large chunk of the credit.

In the first quarter in Atlanta, with the Ravens trailing 3-0, Jackson took a snap from the 13-yard line and darted to his right, juking multiple defenders on his way to running right into the pylon for a touchdown.

The issue now for Baltimore is how to handle having two comparable but very different quarterbacks.

New week, same story.

He will also weigh up whether or not appeal against Dean's decision to send Yedlin off. I can not believe that. "We did everything we could do for winning this game".

"He's done enough [to continue starting]", Ravens coach John Harbaugh said about Jackson, according Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic via Pro Football Talk. He completed two of his four passes for 21 yards. While he didn't throw any interceptions, he also failed to throw any touchdowns.

Before leaving the game, Jackson had fumbled three times. While Lamar Jackson remains incredibly exciting, he's still a work-in-progress.

The Ravens took Jackson with the 32nd pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and until Flacco's injury he was used mostly as a decoy.

The Ravens came away with a 26-16 win over the Falcons. The way that Jackson splits defenses with his legs is special, and Baltimore seems to be committed to allowing him to use his talents comfortably. Jackson without question gives the team its best chances for winning week-in and week-out, and there wasn't anything from this game that would justify benching him.
