Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson exited in the first quarter of Week 13’s game against the Denver Broncos and is questionable to return.

Jackson took a tough sack at the end of the first quarter and went straight to the blue medical tent. He then left the medical tent and went into the locker room for further testing.

NFL’s Ian Rapoport reported that Jackson suffered a knee injury on that play and was questionable to return to the game.

In Jackson’s place, backup quarterback Tyler Huntley is taking starting snaps. The Ravens are currently down 0-3 and have struggled to get their offense going this game.

Ravens’ Lamar Jackson exits game vs. Broncos due to a knee injury

Jackson got sacked three times in the first quarter and hadn’t found much success against a tough Denver defense at the start of the game. The star quarterback was 3-of-4 for 11 passing yards and had one carry for nine yards before leaving just before the second quarter.

The Ravens will obviously suffer a huge blow if Jackson has to miss an extended amount of time, though the details of Jackson’s injury have yet to be revealed.

For now, Huntley will command Baltimore’s offense and try to pick apart the Broncos’ defense for the rest of this game.

UPDATE: Jackson has been officially ruled out for the rest of the game. The severity of his injury remains unknown, but the Ravens’ star quarterback will sit out in Week 13.
