Report: Lamar missed two practices due to groin injury

Ravens

Lamar Jackson missed two straight days of practice, prompting concern regarding the reigning MVP's health entering the 2020 season. 

While head coach John Harbaugh addressed Jackson's absence and said the quarterback was dealing with a "soft-tissue thing," Adam Schefter reported a more specific condition ailing Baltimore's franchise player. 

As Schefter reports, Jackson's absence has been due to a groin injury, though he's expected to return to practice Monday.

The Ravens open their season against the Browns in three weeks, so Jackson's health all season, let alone the first game of the year is paramount. Handling any ailment that arises with him cautiously is probably the right move.

If Jackson is forced to miss time this season, Robert Griffin III figures to be the guy to take over. Good news for Ravens fans is that he's having a terrific camp. 

"RGIII, (he’s) having the best camp that he’s had since he’s been here. He’s really playing well," Harbaugh said last week.

The Ravens are scheduled to return to the practice field Monday morning, so we'll see how Jackson's groin responds to whatever activity he may participate in.
