Lamar Jackson returns a hero after leaving Brown’s sport with convulsions

After Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed a full series and part of a second with cramps in the fourth quarter, he returned to Monday’s game against the Cleveland Browns to allow Marquise Brown a touchdown.

He then led the Ravens during a wild to-and-fro quarter in which the Ravens emerged 47:42 with a 55-yard field goal from Justin Tucker two seconds to go. Baltimore added two more late safety points as the Browns’ desperate hook-and-lateral game ended in the back of their own end zone.

Jackson was replaced by Trace McSorley with the Ravens 34-28 and listed as questionable for return.

The Browns scored a touchdown and took a 35-34 lead before Jackson returned to put the Ravens 42-35 ahead with the 44-yard pass to Brown (4-5).

McSorely appeared to injure his left knee while playing before Jackson returned from the locker room. Jackson was running back to the Ravens sidelines when McSorely lay down on the lawn and clutched his knee.

The leadership changed hands twice as the Ravens secured victory.

Prior to leaving the game, Jackson showed no visible signs of pain or discomfort on the pitch. Jackson is two weeks away from a stint on the COVID-19 list that forced him to miss a week 12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Jackson said he had flu-like symptoms and “wouldn’t wish anyone like that” in his COVID-19 battle.

His substitute Robert Griffin III suffered a hamstring injury in the same game that left him on the list of injured reserves. The Ravens had to turn to McSorely, their third-string quarterback.
