Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed practice Thursday due to an illness but it is not expected to impact his availabilty for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Since Baltimore's Week 4 loss to Cleveland, Jackson has quietly assembled a standout season that could land him in the MVP conversation should he continue at this pace. Right now, Jackson is in line to set the new single-season rushing record for a quarterback, a mark currently owned by game-changing signal-caller Michael Vick. He has more rushing yards (637) by himself than the entire Bengals' roster does this season (476), and the Ravens are on pace to become the first team to average more than 200 rushing yards per game since the 1977 Chicago Bears.

And that Bears team featured Hall-of-Fame running back Walter Payton.

Jackson's illness is not considered serious and he will likely practice again before the week is out.
