Lamar Jackson hasn’t participated within the Ravens’ voluntary organized staff actions, however his absence is anticipated to finish quickly.
Mandatory minicamp kicks off at the Under Armour Performance Center subsequent week.
“I expect him to be here for mandatory minicamp,” Head Coach John Harbaugh mentioned. “I know he’s working hard. Lamar Jackson is a hard worker, so I’m not worried about how hard he’s working. I fully expect him to come back in great shape, that’s what he talks about.
“I’m certain he is robust, I’m certain he is throwing, I’m certain he is doing a superb job. When he will get again right here, we’ll be rolling with Lamar. Right now we’re rolling with the blokes we have, and when he will get right here, he’ll merge proper in with all people and we’ll go to work from there.”
Tyler Huntley has been taking the first-team reps under center, with veteran Brett Hundley and undrafted rookie Anthony Brown following.
While Harbaugh said the reps have been good for Huntley, the Ravens want Jackson back under center to proceed with installing this year’s offensive scheme and building chemistry with his weapons, including a pair of rookie tight ends.
Last week, Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman said “there are undoubtedly some issues which can be new [and] that we’ve not finished. … Probably 80% stuff he is aware of, 20% stuff that we look ahead to engaged on.”
