Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson enjoyed his first playoff victory last Sunday, as the Ravens beat the Tennessee Titans. But Jackson appears to have suffered a head injury in tonight’s match versus the Buffalo Bills. After being tackled in the end zone, Jackson’s head hit the turf as he fell backward.
Jackson has left the field and headed to the locker room, according to sports/pop culture site The Ringer. He would remain their for the rest of the night. NFL reporter Ian Rapoport says Jackson is now in concussion protocol; he was ruled out and did not return.
The injury comes after what appeared to have been a rough game: neither offense achieved much in the first half, with usually-reliable Ravens kicker Justin Tucker missing two field goals. The score was 3-3 at halftime. Since then, the Buffalo Bills have surged, scoring twice. The Ravens lost to the Bills, 17-3.
