OWINGS MILLS, Md. — After a day of worry, all appears well for Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Jackson, a limited participant in practices Monday and Tuesday due to a quad injury, said he expects to be on the field for Thursday’s game against the Jets.

“I feel great, I feel good,” Jackson said. “I’m 100. I’m going to be out there Thursday night.”

Jackson said he suffered the injury on Hayden Hurst’s long touchdown reception.  

“Throwing the ball, not running it,” Jackson quipped on how he suffered his injury. “I got hit on the throw. But I’m pretty good though, I’m good. On the Hayden 61-yarder, he was flying too. I was just celebrating, but I was like, ‘Ugh, I’m kinda sore.’ But I’m good now.”

Jackson threw for 145 yards and three touchdowns, with an interception, and rushed for a 40 yards on 11 carries against Buffalo.

Robert Griffin III remains as Jackson’s backup, should Jackson be unable to finish the game. Griffin said he’s ready for the opportunity if Jackson is still injured. 

But if Jackson’s confidence was any indication, there won’t be any hindrances on Thursday night. 

Since Jackson took over as starting quarterback for the Ravens midway through the 2018 season, he hasn’t missed a start.
