Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is questionable for this weekend’s game against the visiting Green Bay Packers despite missing his third straight practice with an ankle injury on Friday.

Tyler Huntley would draw the start on Sunday if Jackson is unable to play for the Ravens (8-5).

“I’d say he has a chance (to play),” Harbaugh said of Jackson. “It’s just one of those things where it’s an ankle sprain where if he starts feeling good, everything alright, we’ll check him out prior to pregame — he’s in all the preparations and all that — see where we’re at.

“But if not, we got Tyler, and he’ll be ready to go also.”

Jackson left last Sunday’s game early in the second quarter after being taken down on a blitz from Cleveland linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah. Jackson, the 2019 NFL MVP, did not return to the game after moving to the sideline under his own power and being carted to the locker room.

Jackson, 24, finished 4-for-4 passing for 17 yards as the Ravens trailed 10-0 en route to a 24-22 loss. He added five yards rushing on two carries.

Huntley took over at quarterback for the Ravens after Jackson’s departure, completing 27 of 38 passes for 270 yards and one touchdown, with no interceptions. Huntley lost two fumbles.

Wide receiver Marquise Brown (illness), tight end Nick Boyle (knee), offensive linemen Patrick Mekari (hand), Tyre Phillips (illness) and Alejandro Villanueva (knee) and fullback Patrick Ricard (back, knee) are among those listed as questionable to play. Defensive tackle Calais Campbell (thigh) is doubtful to face the Packers (10-3).
