Lamar Jackson Puts Up 300 Total Yards

Sunday, September 24, 11:11 PM

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson posted a huge game on the ground during the 22-19 loss to the Colts. The former MVP ended the game with 101 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries while completing 22 of his 31 throws for 202 yards. The lack of pass protection didn't allow for many scoring opportunities through the air but Jackson salvaged his week by finding running room more often than not. With Justice Hill (foot) out and Gus Edwards (concussion) leaving early, Jackson was the main beneficiary when it came to running the ball. In Week 4, they'll face the toughest defense they've seen so far in the Cleveland Browns.

Kenny Pickett Dealing With Bone Bruise

Monday, October 2, 6:09 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett (knee) suffered a bone bruise in his knee in the Week 4 loss to the Houston Texans that could lead to only a short-term absence. The door is open for Pickett, who is also dealing with a muscle strain, to play in Week 5 against the division-rival Baltimore Ravens, but the Steelers may play it safe with their bye coming in Week 6. We'll have a better idea of whether Pickett has a shot at playing this weekend once the team resumes practicing this Wednesday. For now, though, it seems very questionable that Pickett will be out there until Week 7. If the 25-year-old is held out this Sunday against Baltimore, backup Mitch Trubisky would make his first start of the year under center in a tough matchup.
