After missing two practices this week due to a sore back injury, Lamar Jackson, the Baltimore Ravens' quarterback, is expected to play against the Broncos in Denver on Sunday. A source confirmed that this was reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Jackson was listed as questionable for Sunday's match, but he participated fully in practice Friday, after having been sidelined the two previous days.

Greg Roman, Ravens' offensive coordinator, said that Jackson had a "little back flare-up", but didn't believe it to be serious. Jackson was able to move around during Friday's practice without any problems and didn't seem to be putting pressure on his back.

Jackson was only the second person to be unable to practice consecutively in his four-year career. Jackson has never been sidelined for consecutive practices because of injury.

Jackson will be facing one of the NFL’s best defenses, Denver. The Broncos allow 8.7 points per match, a league record. Von Miller, a linebacker, was named AFC Defensive Players of the Month for four sacks.

Jackson was hit an NFL-high 44 time this season, including 12 times Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions (19-17).

Jackson, who has led the Baltimore offense in yards per rush (7.2), and yards per completion (14.4) through three games, is the NFL's leading player. He has rushed for a league record four times over 20 yards, and has completed 14 passes of at least 20 yards. This is fourth in the NFL.
