Jackson picked up the injury during the team’s Week 13 clash against the Denver Broncos. He left the game in the first quarter and his absence was felt in the way the team performed. Although they got the win, it didn’t look like the Baltimore offense the fans have grown accustomed to.

The latest crisis comes just two weeks after Jackson courted controversy over a tweet after a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The tweet issue 

After the Week 12 loss to the Jaguars, Lamar Jackson replied to a tweet by a fan who urged the Ravens to not give the QB a big-money extension. Fresh off the loss, Jackson went off the rails a little with a graphic reply.

“Boy STFU y’all be cappin too much on this app mf never smelt a football field,” he said … before ending the tweet with, “never did s*** but eat a d***,” Jackson wrote in a now-deleted tweet.

The Ravens QB later apologized for the tweet saying that he was bitter about the loss that day. “I apologize if I hurt feelings out there,” Jackson said five days after the initial tweet.

The injury added to Jackson’s frustration just days after the apology. Now missing out on important games will certainly not make the Ravens QB happy. Can he make a quick comeback and lead his team to the playoffs?
