Baltimore Ravens activate quarterback Lamar Jackson off COVID-19 list

Ed Reed explains what the Ravens need to do to win the Super Bowl. (0:52). OWINGS MILLS (Md. Lamar Jackson has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 roster, which means that he will be able to practice at Baltimore Ravens training camp this Saturday. Jackson was not able to attend the 10 days of training camp that he missed. This is the NFL's rule for players who have received a positive COVID-19 testing result. Ravens coach John Harbaugh stated that Jackson returned to the team facility on Friday for testing. He was subject to the NFL protocol. Harbaugh stated that he had not been informed when Jackson would be back on the practice field after Friday's practice. Jackson was activated by the Ravens a few hours later, and he can now participate in his first full-team practice this summer. Harbaugh stated that he would be back as soon and as often as possible after Friday's practice. "I'm looking forward to that. It's something I look forward to." Jackson was positive for the test on July 27, after five consecutive days of negative results. Jackson has missed eight of the eight full-team training camps in Baltimore so far. Jackson was positive for coronavirus for the second time in eight weeks. On Tuesday, Maryland Governor. Larry Hogan encouraged Jackson to get vaccinated. Gus Edwards was put on the reserve/COVID-19 roster at the same moment as Jackson. He returned to practice Friday, and performed well in drills. Harbaugh stated that Jackson was clearly more ahead of Gus in not having to take certain tests. Derek Wolfe, Ravens defensive end, didn't hide his disgust at the NFL's COVID rules. Wolfe stated, "I don’t want to talk about that." We can't do anything about that. The white-hatted higher-ups will do whatever they want. The sheep will just have to follow their lead. "I'm here to play football." Justin Houston, a Pro Bowl linebacker, signed a one year deal with Baltimore on Monday. He practiced with the Ravens for the first time on Friday. Before leaving the field, he participated in drills. Harbaugh stated, "That was part the plan with Justin." "We will have to get him back in." The Ravens were able to avoid an injury scare on Friday with cornerback Jimmy Smith who was taken off the field after practice. According to a source, Smith sustained a minor ankle injury that was not serious.
