The Baltimore Ravens earned their 13th win of the season Sunday against a hapless Cleveland Browns squad. In doing so, Lamar Jackson and Co. clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC Playoffs.
That’s the good news. Unfortunately, there’s also some bad news that came out of this game. Pro Bowl running back Mark Ingram exited with a calf injury and did not return to the field.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh noted after the game that there’s no structural damage to the calf, but Ingram will get an MRI on Monday.
ESPN’s Josina Anderson caught up with Ingram after the game. She noted that he was wearing a walking boot.
Ingram just went over the 1,000-yard mark in his first season with Baltimore earlier in the game. He’s been absolutely stellar during a Pro Bowl campaign for the former Heisman winner.
This could obviously be big news, pending the MRI results. The good news is that Baltimore’s Week 17 game against Pittsburgh means nothing for the team.
It could rest Ingram and give him two full weeks offf before the divisional round of the playoffs.
