1. Lamar Jackson

UPDATE (Jan. 15): Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game in Cincinnati.

John Harbaugh is choosing to play “hardball” by not discussing Lamar Jackson’s health.

His ACL was torn when his knee was slammed into the ground during Week 13. (PCL). We will find out on Wednesday if Lamar can join the Ravens for practice.

2. Gus Edwards

UPDATE (Jan. 15): There will be no concussion-related absence of Gus Edwards for Sunday’s playoff opener against the Bengals.

Edwards, who had previously said he had passed the NFL’s concussion protocol, was listed as a full practice participant on Friday, clearing him to play in the Ravens’ backfield this weekend.

With a head injury, Gus Edwards was forced to leave Sunday’s game against Baltimore. J.K. Dobbins, the team’s regular starter, was being rested for the playoffs, so he got the nod in his place.

Edwards is currently undergoing concussion protocol. He needs the green light to play on Sunday. The Ravens need Edwards healthy for the postseason because he is the more physical runner of the two.

3. Mecole Hardman 

Even though Hardman was activated from injured reserve last week, he did not see action in Saturday’s game against the Raiders. He’s been practicing to some degree and hopes to play in the postseason.

If he can get healthy and return to the field, he will be a huge asset for the Chiefs. He scored a touchdown pass in three straight games before being placed on injured reserve in Week 9.

4. Tyreek Hill

UPDATE (Jan. 15): Active

On Sunday, while playing against the Jets, the Dolphins’ best receiver hurt his ankle. He made it to the sidelines, but not before hurling his helmet in exasperation.

For an offense that has taken some hits already this week, like the Dolphins’, staying active and healthy is critical. In total for the season, he has amassed 1,687 yards.
