Ravens QB Lamar Jackson confident he'll play vs. Browns

This time, Lamar Jackson is "120%" certain that he's playing, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Three days after an illness relapse caused him to miss a game, Jackson returned to practice Wednesday and is set to start against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday night.

"I'm feeling good. Great this time," Jackson said with a smile. "... Positive. Certain. No relapses, man."

Jackson participated in the morning walkthrough Wednesday morning and attended all the meetings. His expectation is to have a full practice Wednesday.

"I think I'm fully back to normal," Jackson said. "I want to go out there and just go. I don't want to go out there and limit myself or have coach limit me."

He has a 4-1 mark against the Browns with an 85.8 Total QBR. That's the second-highest Total QBR of any quarterback against a single opponent since the metric was first tracked in 2006.

Jackson missed two days of practice last week because he was sick, but he came back for a full practice Friday. Symptoms, however, returned Saturday, which sidelined him for Sunday's 16-13 win at the Chicago Bears.

"I have no clue [what happened from Friday to Saturday]," said Jackson, who added he was sweating in his sleep. "I just got fatigued. I got some chills. I was out of it. But I'm good now. I'm feeling great."

On the flight to Chicago, Jackson rolled up in a ball in the seat and was so sick that he didn't realize the plane had landed. During the game, Jackson watched from the locker room with his jacket wrapped around him.

Jackson, however, celebrated when backup quarterback Tyler Huntley guided the Ravens to a game-winning 72-yard drive in the final minute.

"When he did that last drive, I felt like I wasn't sick anymore," Jackson said.
