The Baltimore Ravens put quarterback Lamar Jackson on their injury report on the Wednesday before Week 3.

But the sender of the dynamic signal is confident that he will not be there on Sunday.

Jackson was placed on the disabled list as a limited participant in practice as he did not throw the ball due to a right elbow injury. During the media availability, Jackson was seen standing to the side as the other quarterbacks threw.

The No. 8 also had a protective sleeve on his right arm for the first time, but told the media that he will be ready to face the New England Patriots in a few days.

“I’m going to pitch on Sunday, a lot on Sunday,” he said via ESPN.

“I’m fine. The pad came with the sleeve. It wasn’t added or anything like that. I’ll be there on Sunday. I’ll be there [Thursday] in practice. I’m fine.”

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh shared the same lack of concern for Jackson, saying, “It’s just a normal run of the season.”

Despite his running prowess, Jackson has only had to miss four games in his NFL career, which came last year with a season-ending ankle injury. And he has been regressing further this season, a current rate of 61% as he throws for 531 yards and six touchdowns.

Without JK Dobbins, the team’s starting running back, the running game has been slow to start the year. Being 18th in the league with 109 rushing yards per game isn’t bad, but the Ravens expect more from that side of the offense that opens up everything else.

Last week against the Miami Dolphins, the Ravens ended up losing late, losing a big lead. But Jackson had 119 yards on just nine attempts with his first rushing touchdown of the season. He also threw for three touchdowns and didn’t throw an interception, going 21-for-29 through the air.

This week against New England, the Ravens will face one of the sixth-best rushing defenses in the league thus far, having allowed only 78 yards per game.
