Lamar Jackson Injury , ill ness Update. He will continue or not?

The Ravens are looking to bounce back in Week 11 after an embarrassing loss on "Thursday Night Football" against the Dolphins last week. They're going to have to do it without Lamar Jackson.

The team's star quarterback was listed as "questionable" for the Ravens' game against the Bears as he dealt with an illness. He practiced for the team on Friday, but over the weekend, his symptoms worsened. He went to Soldier Field on Sunday to see if he could work his way into game shape, but was unable to do so.

As such, the Ravens will have to earn a win without Jackson for the first time since he missed a game against the Steelers last season after testing positive for COVID-19.

Why is Lamar Jackson out vs. Bears?

Jackson will not start for the Ravens as he deals with a non-COVID-related illness.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jackson is dealing with "a virus so bad that he's simply not himself." Jackson traveled with the Ravens to Chicago, but didn't feel well enough to play.

Lamar Jackson is dealing with a virus so bad that he’s simply not himself. He flew to Chicago and tried to stay hydrated. But it was too much. 

Jackson had missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with the illness, but was listed as a full participant during Friday's practice. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Saturday that Jackson was "50-50" to play in Week 11, so he was truly questionable for the game.

Is Lamar Jackson vaccinated?

Jackson's vaccination status is unclear. He dealt with COVID during the 2020 NFL season and caught it again during the summer of 2021. He returned from that second bout with the virus in early August, but was noncommittal about getting vaccinated. In early September, he declined to elaborate his status ahead of Week 1.

"I want to keep that between me and my family and the doctors," Jackson told reporters. "That’s all."

So it's still unclear whether Jackson has been vaccinated. However, Jackson tested negative for COVID-19, per Rapoport, so this absence is unrelated to the NFL's COVID protocols. He just doesn't feel well enough to play.

The #Ravens and their medical staff have tested Lamar Jackson. It’s not COVID. But the exact virus hasn’t been identified yet. It’s not the flu. But it is serious enough to make him feel horrible. He’s just not well enough to go.
