Ravens’ Lamar Jackson in concussion protocol after hit takes him out of game

Lamar Jackson Ravens

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson was placed into concussion protocol midway through their NFL Playoff matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

Without Jackson, the Ravens succumbed to the Bills who now advance to the AFC Championship game.

Baltimore was already down 10-3 late in the third quarter before things started to turn for the worst. The Bills had a crucial 101-yard interception that turned the tides.

And on the Ravens’ succeeding possession, Jackson needed to go after a bad snap but just managed to let go of the ball before reaching Buffalo’s end zone. Jackson had already taken quite a few hard hits throughout the game. This, unfortunately, became the final nail to the coffin that prematurely ended his night. Tyler Huntley replaced the 2019 MVP to start the fourth period.

As the Ravens end their season, Jackson finished his 3rd NFL campaign going 14-of-24 on 162 yards. He committed one interception prior to leaving the game.

This will certainly be a tough way to go out for Jackson and the rest of the Ravens. They finished the regular year with a 12-5 record but faced a tough Buffalo squad led by a rising star in Josh Allen.

The Bills await the winner between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs led by Patrick Mahomes and the inspired Cleveland Browns.
