News broke earlier this week that Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed practice due to an illness. 

Ravens fans can breathe a sigh of relief as the 22-year old returned to practice Friday. 

While there has been no clarification on how Jackson obtained the illness, fellow Ravens starter Marshal Yanda also has missed practice this week due to an illness. 

Jackson is coming off one of the biggest wins in his young career, a 37-20 thrashing of the defending champion Patriots. Jackson racked up 220 all-purpose yards and three total touchdowns in the victory. 

The Ravens appear healthy ahead of their division matchup against the Bengals. 

The winless Bengals defense ranks worst in the NFL in rushing yards allowed, surrendering 177 yards per game on the ground. 

With a turnover ratio of -9, the Bengals should have problems getting the Ravens offense off the field. With Jackson set to play, the Bengals will try and stop the Ravens rushing attack. A feat not even New England was able to contain.
