After missing the last 2 games with an ankle injury, ex-Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson returned to practice Wednesday for the Ravens to prepare for a game against the Rams. The Louisville legend injured his ankle on Dec. 12th when the Ravens lost to a “sweater-party” to Cleveland. The question is whether or not he will suit up on Sunday.

The Ravens (8-7) have recently utilized the services of backup Tyler Huntley while Lamar has been on the mend. Huntley has been a dynamic dual-threat backup, which has allowed the Ravens to execute most of what they are accustomed to on offense. However, let’s keep it all the way real, there is no legitimate replacement who can do precisely that of what Lamar can when he is on an NFL football field.

Baltimore is vying for a playoff spot at this point in the season. Apparently Jackson was only diagnosed with a sprained ankle. Judging from his willingness to participate, everyone in the organization is aware that this weeks game is a crucial if the Ravens plan to acquire a whiff of the post-season. Lamar Jackson will be doing his best imitation of Willis Reed this upcoming Sunday.

Louisville fans always look forward to seeing LJ succeed at the highest levels. If it’s in the “cards” maybe he will lead his team to victory in his return to action as he did so many times before for Louisville football. Good luck Lamar!
