Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had to leave Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs because of an ankle injury, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh reportedly said Jackson will be ready to play the next game.

"Looks like he's OK," Harbaugh said, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. "I think he's going to be OK."

If quarterback Joe Flacco is cleared to play this week, it means Harbaugh's choice of a starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will come down to a football decision.

Harbaugh said it "stands to reason" that Flacco will be part of the game plan for Week 15 if he's cleared to play.

In the days leading up to the loss to the Chiefs, Flacco was considered questionable for that game after having a full week of practice, and was expected to serve as a backup to Jackson.

However, Flacco was ruled inactive for the fourth straight game because of a hip injury.

Jackson was knocked out of the game against the Chiefs when he was sacked by Justin Houston and Dee Ford.

Robert Griffin III replaced Jackson for the final two plays of Baltimore's overtime loss.

Jackson is 3-1 in his four starts this season, the only loss being the 27-24 overtime defeat on the road against the Chiefs, who are now 11-2.
