«When you have something good, you don’t play with it. You don’t risk losing it. You don’t neglect it,» the post read. «When you have something good, you pour it out. You appreciate it. Because when you take care of something good, that good takes care of you too.»
Jackson left the team’s Week 13 game against the Broncos after suffering the injury. Baltimore has been using Tyler Huntley and Anthony Brown at quarterback ever since.
He tweeted about the injury he sustained on Friday.

«Thank you all for your support and concerns regarding my injuries. I want to give you all an update as I am on the mend,» he tweeted. «I have suffered a grade 2 PCL sprain bordering on a strain 3. There is still swelling around my knee and my knee remains unstable. I am still in good spirits as I continue my treatments on the road to recovery. I wish I could be with my guys more than anything, but I can’t give 100% of myself to my guys and fans, I’m still hopeful that we still have a chance.»
It’s unclear what the Ravens will do with Jackson, since he will become a free agent once the offseason begins.
Jackson’s teammates were stumped at his return.
«You can’t let a guy like him go,» Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell said via ESPN. «There’s always an exciting new kid who has the potential to go out and be great. But this is a ‘safe’ and ‘know’ business, and you know who Lamar Jackson is. I think it’s in the best interests of the youth organization.» the Ravens to give him a long-term contract and make him ‘the guy’.»
Added Ronnie Staley: «In my mind, I know he’s going to be here. He’s a competitor. He wants to win. This is his team, and this is his offense. Money isn’t the most important thing to Lamar. He really wants to win, contrary to the popular belief».
