The Baltimore Ravens are expected to start Lamar Jackson at quarterback Sunday vs Cincinnati Bengals.
The team’s starter Joe Flacco, who is highly unlikely to be back in Baltimore next season did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful. Robert Griffin III would back-up Jackson.
The #Ravens are, in fact, starting rookie first-round QB Lamar Jackson today vs. the #Bengals based on my understanding. Not a surprise at this point, but this is something his teammates are pretty excited about. A big spot for his starting debut.

Jackson was the Ravens first round pick in the 2018 Draft and is viewed as the heir apparent to Joe Flacco, who the team is expected to move on from after the season.
