Lamar Jackson's Illness Described As "Pretty Bad"

Sunday, July 21, 7:22 PM

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (illness) was sent home from the team's first day of training camp. Details surrounding the nature of his symptoms were scarce. However, NFL insider Josina Anderson provided an update, reporting that the signal-caller is dealing with a "pretty bad" illness. Without question, this is not the way anyone would want to start camp. Hopefully, Jackson's sickness won't keep him off the field for an extended period. The two-time MVP is coming off a potent season. He finished by throwing for 3,678 yards, 24 touchdowns, and seven interceptions, adding 821 yards and five scores off 148 carries. Jackson also completed a career-high 67.2% of his passes. Fantasy managers should expect more information regarding his health on Monday.

Bengals Re-Sign Jake Browning

Tuesday, April 23, 2:06 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals re-signed exclusive-rights free-agent quarterback Jake Browning to an undisclosed two-year deal on Tuesday on a contract through the 2025 season. Browning got his first real shot in the NFL last year with the Bengals when he was forced to replace Joe Burrow (wrist) after his season-ending injury. In his first nine games (seven starts) played in the NFL, he held his own and kept the Bengals competitive despite not making the playoffs, posting a league-best 70.4 completion percentage, 1,936 yards, 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions. The 28-year-old will return to being the primary backup to Burrow in 2024, so he won't have any real fantasy appeal unless Burrow misses time with another injury.
