“He’ll be fine,” Harbaugh said after practice. “He tried to get to practice but he was just too sick.”
Asked if he’ll play Sunday, Harbaugh replied, “Oh yeah.”
Last year, Jackson said he wasn’t worried about the number of times he has been sick.
“I’ve been healthy all my life,” Jackson said at the time. “I never had problems being ill at all until I’m here. So I don’t really know what that is.”
This is the first practice that Jackson has missed this year. He had been limited in two practices in 2022 (right elbow injury in Week 3 and hip injury in Week 7).
The first-place Ravens (6-3) are favored by 13 points over the Panthers (3-6), the biggest spread of the week. Jackson, who has never faced Carolina, is 26-2 in his first start against a team in his career. That’s the best record since 1950 among quarterbacks to start against at least 20 different teams, according to research by the Elias Sports Bureau.
If Jackson were unable to play, Huntley would make his fifth career start.
