For the second straight practice, the Ravens were without their starting quarterback. 

Saturday, assistant head coach David Culley said Lamar Jackson’s absence was related to a scheduled day off to rest his arm. Sunday, Jackson wasn’t at practice.

“We’ve got a couple guys, Marcus Peters is another one, Justice Hill is another one, that have some soft-tissue things,” coach John Harbaugh said Sunday. “Just rather be safe right now and give those things a chance to get better and be right.”

Jackson had been a regular participant at practice before Saturday. The team will stay quiet about the reigning MVP, especially as the season draws closer, but the Ravens certainly would like to have their star on the field. "I know you guys are sleuthing it out, playing Dick Tracy, but it's training camp,” Harbaugh said. “We're getting close to the season and we're really not talking about injuries too much."


The Ravens are back on the field for practice on Monday morning.
