It appears having Wednesday off did Lamar Jackson some good.
Jackson was back on the field for the Ravens' first practice of 2020 after missing Tuesday's session. Jackson has been dealing with the flu according to Head Coach John Harbaugh. Having a bye this weekend gives Jackson extra time to recover before the Ravens' playoff opener on Jan. 11 in the divisional round.
One of the challenges for the Ravens during their bye week is to maintain timing and conditioning. Having Jackson on the field working with his teammates was a welcome sight with the team scheduled to practice Thursday and Friday before taking the weekend off.
