QB Lamar Jackson is likely to play against the Lions despite being out with an illness.
Week 3 should see the Baltimore Ravens’ great quarterback return.
A source tells Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network that Lamar Jackson (illness) will play against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. To be safe, the Ravens have classified Jackson as questionable on their injury report.
Jackson was unable to participate in Thursday’s practice due to a non-COVID sickness but was able to return to the team on Friday. The fact that Lamar Jackson will be available for Sunday’s game is welcome news for the Baltimore Ravens,
who have had numerous players miss time due to injuries thus far this season. However, Ronnie Stanley, Jackson’s blindside blocker, will not play against Baltimore due to an ankle ailment.
Before Sunday’s Week 3 games, we’ll be keeping a watch on the following injury reports:
Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (ribs) of the Arizona Cardinals will play against the Jaguars on Sunday despite missing all of the team’s practices this week. In the past, according to Rapoport, Hopkins has nearly always played and a trusted source close to the star WR has said, “Have you ever known him to skip a game?”.
Running back Darrell Henderson (ribs) of the Los Angeles Rams is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source who spoke to Rapoport. For L.A., Sony Michel will be the starting running back if Henderson is unable to play, with Jake Funk filling in as a backup.
NFL Network’s James Palmer stated that Los Angeles Chargers pass rusher Joey Bosa (foot/ankle) will play against the Kansas City Chiefs despite his injury status. Despite missing all of the team’s practices this week, Rapoport said he was still a game-time decision.
According to Rapoport, tight end Evan Engram (calf) of the New York Giants is anticipated to make his NFL debut in 2021 following a strong week of practice. Wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hip) worked out early on Sunday
and is expected to play against the Falcons despite his injury status.
According to Rapoport, after missing all of practice this week because of an ankle issue,
Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook intends to play against Seattle despite being listed as questionable. Rapoport adds that Cook may or may not play,
but that it will be on a “very restricted” basis if he does.
Chris Jones, the Chiefs’ questionable defensive tackle because of a wrist injury,
is expected to play against the Chargers, according to NFL Network’s James Palmer.
He’s a go-getter. Frank Clark, the team’s uncertain defensive end due to a hamstring ailment, is not in action today.
Trent Brown, the Patriots’ starting offensive tackle, and Uche, the Patriots’ starting linebacker,
are both out against the Saints on Sunday. According to NFL Network’s Mike Giardi, Brown’s calf issue hasn’t improved enough, therefore he’ll miss a second game.
Carson Wentz (ankles) of the Indianapolis Colts will start Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans despite being listed as questionable. Additionally, the Colts activated backup quarterbacks Jacob Eason and Brett Hundley.
