Following the team’s loss, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh provided an update on the injured star.
According to Harbaugh, Jackson has been diagnosed with an ankle sprain though the severity of the injury is unclear at this time. Jackson will undergo further testing on Monday and the team will monitor his health to determine how long he could be on the sidelines. The good news, however, is that Harbaugh indicated an MRI may not be necessary.

Without Jackson under center, Tyler Huntley entered the game and led the team on a late comeback that ultimately fell short.
Up next for the Ravens is a Sunday meeting with the Green Bay Packers. Whether Jackson will be available remains to be seen, but his absence would be a devastating blow for Baltimore with a wide open AFC Playoff race and divisional race in the AFC North.
