Lamar Jackson is still not at practice as the Ravens prepare for their regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. Jackson has now been sidelined for a month since suffering his knee injury on Dec. 4 against the Denver Broncos.

Even if Jackson doesn't play in Sunday's game in Cincinnati, which may not be for the AFC North title, it would still be a good sign for the playoffs if he took the practice field this week.

Head Coach John Harbaugh was asked Wednesday if he expects Jackson to be ready for the postseason.

"I'm just probably going to leave all that stuff alone," Harbaugh said. "I'm going to focus on the game and just get ready to coach our guys and have our guys get ready to play the game."

On Monday, Harbaugh said that "of course" he would like to see Jackson get a week of practice under his belt before the playoffs. Asked whether Jackson's availability for the postseason would be jeopardized if he doesn't practice this week, Harbaugh said he wouldn't make such a commitment.

Tyler Huntley would step in for Jackson for a fifth straight start if Jackson doesn't play Sunday in Cincinnati. However, Huntley is also again dealing with soreness in his right throwing shoulder. He was limited in Wednesday's practice and also listed with a wrist issue.

In good news, cornerback Marcus Peters (calf) returned to the practice field after missing the past two games. His return would be a boon considering the Bengals have three top-notch wide receivers in Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

Defensive lineman Calais Campbell (knee) is not at the start of Wednesday's practice, but Harbaugh said he will return to the field tomorrow.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson (illness) didn't practice Wednesday. Offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley, running back J.K. Dobbins, guard Kevin Zeitler, and outside linebacker Justin Houston all had rest days. Cornerback Kevon Seymour was limited by a finger injury.

Everybody practiced Wednesday for the Bengals. Defensive end Sam Hubbard (calf) was the only player on the injury report as a limited participant.
