John Harbaugh told reporters on Monday that Lamar Jackson's ankle injury was not a high ankle injury.

Harbaugh said that there were plans for Jackson to be able to play against the Packers, but that they would see where it goes.

The Louisville product was carted off the field. He missed time earlier this season because of an illness.

Jackson is one of the best players in the league when he is healthy. He can beat defenses through the air and on the ground thanks to his strong arm and athletic ability.

He has completed 64.4% of his passes for 2,882 yards, 16 touchdown and 13 interceptions, while adding 767 yards and two scores on the ground this season.

If Jackson is out, look for Tyler Huntley to take his place. The backup quarterback led the Ravens to a dramatic comeback victory over the Chicago Bears when the starting quarterback was out and will look to keep the team afloat in the playoffs.

Baltimore's hopes for the Super Bowl rest on whether Jackson is healthy the rest of the way.
