Before the Ravens beat the Jets last Thursday, there was a report indicating that the Ravens would likely rest quarterback Lamar Jackson in Week 17 if they had locked up the top playoff seed in the AFC.
Last Thursday’s win means that they can accomplish that task by beating the Browns this weekend. On Monday, head coach John Harbaugh was asked if the team will indeed sit Jackson if they knock off Cleveland this weekend.
Harbaugh said, “no plans have been made” at this point.

Harbaugh said he'd decide "when the time comes," but Jackson owners can't like the direction this looks to be heading. Owners may want to make sure they have a backup plan in place now if they were counting on Jackson for Week 17.
