Lamar Jackson was not on the practice field with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, casting doubt on the quarterback’s availability to return from a knee injury Sunday night.

The Ravens and visiting Steelers square off in the primetime game Sunday with Baltimore (10-5) pushing for the AFC North title and Pittsburgh (7-8) still alive in the AFC playoff picture.

Head coach John Harbaugh offered little insight regarding Jackson’s status this week and overall. Jackson hasn’t played since Dec. 4 due to a knee sprain.

Quarterback Tyler Huntley is in line to start if Jackson cannot. Huntley and the Ravens beat the Steelers, 16-14, on Dec. 11.

The Steelers are part of the wild-card logjam that includes the Miami Dolphins (8-7), New England Patriots (7-8) and New York Jets (7-8). But the Steelers lost to all three teams head-to-head.

Baltimore locked up a wild-card spot but can overtake the Bengals (11-4) if Cincinnati loses to the Buffalo Bills (12-3) on Monday night and the Ravens beat the reigning AFC champions next week in the regular-season finale.
