Ravens’ Lamar Jackson noncommittal about vaccine after second COVID bout: ‘We’ll see’

Lamar Jackson was ready for Ravens training camp when he came down with COVID for the second time in eight months.

Jackson originally landed on the COVID list in November ahead of Baltimore’s Week 12 loss to Pittsburgh. And when he found out he had come down with the virus again just ahead of training camp, the Ravens quarterback was “heartbroken.”

“It was crazy. I was heartbroken. I wasn’t looking forward to that at all. Right before camp,” Jackson said, per ESPN. “Not again, not right now.”

Jackson was “hit pretty hard with the symptoms” according to Ravens coach John Harbaugh. And Jackson admitted he was “fatigued” and “sleeping a lot.” Still, he was noncommittal about getting vaccinated against the illness.

“I feel it’s a personal decision,” Jackson said of getting vaccinated. “I’m just going to keep my feelings to my family and myself. I’m focused on getting better right now. I can’t dwell on that right now … how everybody else feels. Just trying to get back to the right routine.”

However, Jackson did acknowledge that he was “talking to the doctors” about his decision.

“We’ll see,” Jackson said. “Talking to the doctors. We’ll see.”

But for now, Jackson is just learning more about the vaccine while he looks to work back into game shape after his second bout with COVID.

“I’m taking it day by day right now,” he said. “I’m just glad to be back. I’m just glad to be back with my guys.”

Jackson is one of a handful of Ravens players that remains unvaccinated. According to Harbaugh, the team entered training camp with a 90 percent player vaccination rate. As of late July, 85 percent of NFL players had received at least one dose of the vaccine.
