Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed Wednesday's practice with a back injury.

Jackson, 24, has led the Ravens to a 2-1 record so far this season. In the process, he's thrown for 761 yards and three touchdowns with three picks in addition to 251 yards and two scores on the ground.

You could argue Jackson's the sole reason Baltimore is 2-1 and not 0-3, which was absolutely in the cards. That just goes to show how vital he is to the Ravens' overall success.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman offered an update on Jackson's back injury on Thursday afternoon. It sounds like it's not serious.

"I don’t think it’s anything serious," Roman said, via

Ravens OC Greg Roman said Lamar Jackson is dealing with "a little back flare-up."

"I don’t think it’s anything serious," Roman said. "But we’re just going to have to kind of wait and see. I think he’s going to be in good shape. We’ll wait and see."

The Ravens will need Lamar Jackson at his best this Sunday against an undefeated Denver Broncos team. His health will be a major storyline heading into the weekend.

Jackson's solid play through the first three weeks of the season has overshadowed Baltimore's lengthy injury list. The Ravens don't even have their top two running backs - J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards - who are both out for the year with injuries.

As long as Jackson stays healthy, the Ravens are dangerous. This week, it doesn't sound like his health is a guarantee. We should receive new information surrounding Jackson's back injury ahead of Sunday's game.

The Ravens take on the Broncos this Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET.
