Lamar Jackson, the Ravens’ standout quarterback, will miss training camp due to a COVID-19-related concern.

While Jackson was not present at practice on Wednesday, Trace McSorley and Tyler Huntley are expected to take the majority of the snaps at quarterback, according to Schefter.
Kenji Bahar is the third-string quarterback at practice.
After testing positive for COVID-19 during the 2020 season, Jackson missed one game.
He has refused to say whether he has been vaccinated when reporters have asked him about it this summer.
In recent weeks, vaccination has become a heated topic in the NFL, with the league issuing a statement indicating that teams with COVID-19 outbreaks among unvaccinated players will be forced to forfeit games if they can’t be rescheduled within the 18-week schedule.
Unvaccinated NFL players will be fined $14,650 each time they breach COVID-19 protocols, according to the league.
Some NFL players, like DeAndre Hopkins and Matt Judon, have criticised the league for its handling of unvaccinated players, stating that getting immunized is a personal choice.
While some athletes are still refusing to get the vaccine, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette has stated that he is at least contemplating it if it is in his and his teammates’ best interests.
