Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson felt fine after suffering the concussion but he was frustrated that he was not able to return to the field in the fourth quarter against the Buffalo Bills. On the final drive of the third quarter, Jackson left to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion and he did not return to the game.
The Ravens were down 17-3 when Jackson left the game and no points were scored in the fourth quarter so the Bills ended up winning 17-3. "He's frustrated. He's doing good," said Buffalo wide receiver Willie Snead IV, who spoke to Jackson following the contest.
"He said he's fine from the concussion but he's frustrated that we were that close and that we didn't get to finish drives. He's the ultimate competitor. He doesn't like to lose." Ravens head coach John Harbaugh did not want to further elaborate on Jackson's condition after the game.
"He was ruled out with a concussion, and that's where it stands," Harbaugh said.
Jackson failed to deliver for the Ravens
The Ravens were trailing 10-3 late in the third quarter but were in the red zone and near a touchdown score Jackson then threw an interception and a Bills cornerback returned it for 101 yards and a 17-3 lead.
"That kind of jinxed us right there," Snead said with a laugh. "[Johnson] just squeezed real hard on Mark, and [Jackson] didn't see him. It's just one of those plays where he threw it and [Johnson] jumped it.
It just sucks. It was a huge momentum shift in the game." Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Rams suffered a 32-18 loss to the Green Bay Packers but their star pass rusher Aaron Donald was not fullz healthy for the game. "I love Aaron Donald, it means a lot to him," Rams head coach Sean McVay said after the game, "and it's unfortunate that he wasn't at full strength today."
Rams defensive lineman Michael Brockers also expressed disappointment for Donald after the game. "Hard for a guy like that to work as hard as he does to put in everything that he does," Brockers said, later adding, "[I] just got to talk to him, let him know, 'Man, that's not on you, that's not on you -- there's no reason you have to feel that way, [that] you feel like you failed or anything like that. You gave us everything you had and you're the reason why we're here.' "
