For the first time this offseason, Lamar Jackson has rejoined the Baltimore Ravens. According to a source, Jackson reported for his physical on Monday and was at the Ravens’ facility, as the organization stated on Monday. This comes only one day before the team’s required three-day minicamp. For the first time in his five-year NFL career, Jackson has missed all three weeks of optional organized team activities. None of the wide receivers with whom Jackson will train are older than 25, and none have played more than two seasons.
Jackson last appeared on the field for the Ravens in December, when he hobbled through practice in a serious way. With a right ankle injury, he missed the final four games of the season. Last month, the 2019 NFL MVP assured teammates that he will be back with the Ravens “soon,” and coach John Harbaugh stated last week that he expects Jackson to attend the obligatory minicamp. Jackson has held private throwing sessions with wide receivers Rashod Bateman and James Proche, as well as throwing coach Adam Dedeaux, in Florida and California this spring.
