When the Baltimore Ravens took the practice field on Thursday, their most important player was absent.

Lamar Jackson reportedly missed practice with an illness, first reported by The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec.

It's the first practice Jackson has missed this season.

Marshal Yanda missed practice on Wednesday with an illness he picked up from his kids, according to Head Coach John Harbaugh. Yanda and Jackson's lockers are next to each other, so there's a possibility the illnesses could be related.

If it is, Yanda missed just one day and returned to practice on Thursday.

The Ravens will look to continue their winning streak as they face the winless Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. If Jackson isn't able to play, Robert Griffin III would be the presumed starter.

But for now, this doesn't seem like anything to worry about.
