The Baltimore Ravens are expected to return two of their most prominent players for their final preseason game on Saturday in quarterback Lamar Jackson and left tackle Ronnie Stanley.

Jackson and Stanley were seen warming up with the first-team offense prior to Saturday’s game indicating that the team expects both players to play.

Both Jackson and Stanley have yet to play in a preseason game this year due to a variety of reasons. Jackson had a bout with COVID-19 and the Ravens haven’t wanted to risk throwing him out there too soon (especially without his star left tackle).

Meanwhile, Stanley has been working his way back from ankle surgery. He returned to practice last week and is now expected to make his preseason debut tonight.

The Ravens traveled to FedExField to take on the Washington Football Team in their third and final preseason game of the summer. And they’ll be looking to make NFL history in the process.

The last time the Ravens, who will be in search of their 20th consecutive preseason victory, lost a preseason game, Jackson hadn’t even played a collegiate game yet.

Now, Jackson will return to the field and look to lead his team to victory.

A victory in this game would set a new NFL record for the most consecutive preseason wins, officially topping the 1959-1962 Vince Lombardi-led Green Bay Packers who are currently tied with the Ravens with 19 wins in a row.

It’s unlikely that Jackson and Stanley play longer than a series or two, especially with so many other starters out due to injury.

Washington is notably sitting the majority of their starting lineup including quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and star pass rusher Chase Young.

While it is only the preseason, it will be nice to have Lamar Jackson and Ronnie Stanley back on the field before the regular season begins.
