Lamar Jackson has been in the thick of it ever since his ridiculous flipping touchdown. We all witnessed Lamar flipping into the end zone, but his landing absolutely sucked. While it looked spectacular, it had repercussions on the quarterback. However, the Baltimore Ravens game against Detroit Lions only aggravated the injury. The news broke out on the Baltimore Ravens official website.

Justin Tucker nailed a monstrous field goal to win the game for Baltimore, but Lamar Jackson’s contributions cannot be ignored. He carried the ball 287 yards with one touchdown, but suffered one agonizing interception. While he wasn’t at his brilliant best, he still carried the Ravens to an important victory.

Unfortunately, the quarterback has suffered more injuries to his already wretched back. Jackson took some big hits from the Detroit Lions defence and was sacked four times. It is still unclear whether the Ravens rested him for one practice session, or he’s actually out for a significant period.

Aggravating a back injury could have serious repercussions. Lamar Jackson is the Ravens’ best hope of making it past the playoffs, and losing him would be troublesome. It is safe to say that playing against the Lions this weekend aggravated his injuries, because of which he missed practice.

Last week, Jackson missed a practice section and the entire football community blamed it on the flipping touchdown. Even analyst Rich Eisen laid into Jackson, calling the move stupid and urging him to “walk it in.” Lamar walked into Ford Field and put on a decent performance, proving his doubters wrong. But will he make it to the field against an unbeaten Broncos side?

The Ravens’ next test is against the rampaging Denver Broncos. Few expected the Broncos to have such a stellar start to the season, and they will only want to prove everyone wrong. Wins over the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets sets them in a class apart, three weeks into the 2021 NFL season.

However, the Ravens are known for being giant killers. In game week 2, Lamar Jackson and Co pulled off a comeback win against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. The entire world touted the Chiefs as Jackson’s kryptonite, but he pulled off a stunning performance. In that game, Lamar got a little too excited and flipped into the end zone, injuring his back in the process.
