Lamar Jackson (quad) is officially questionable for Ravens vs. Jets on Thursday Night Football. Jackson apparently suffered the quad injury last Sunday against Buffalo. He was a limited participant in the Ravens practice report on Monday and Tuesday before being a full participant on Wednesday. With Week 15 in the middle of the fantasy playoffs, Jackson's fantasy football owners need him to start and will surely look for updates until the active / inactive officer is released.

Meanwhile, we will have updates below and until the beginning. For more fantasy news, follow us on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.

Is Lamar Jackson playing Thursday night?

Each signal points to Jackson playing. Multiple reports indicated a improvement in Jackson's movement Monday through Tuesday in practice, and Jackson told reporters he had had a small scare after receiving a hit on the quad in his 61-yard touchdown pass to Hayden Hurst last Sunday.

WEEK 15 RANKINGS NO PPR:
Field Marshal | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

After Tuesday's practice, Jackson confirmed to journalists which will play on Thursday, saying "I will be there on Thursday night."

WEEK 15 PPR CLASSIFICATIONS: Running | Wide receiver | Hard end

If that wasn't enough confirmation for you, Jackson's full participation on Wednesday basically puts him in stone. Except for some strange adjustments prior to the game that may stop him from playing and force Robert Griffin III to an initial role, Jackson will be there.

Regardless of whether Jackson can move as well as he normally does, he is starting it in all fantasy leagues once his active status becomes official at approximately 6:50 p.m. ET Thursday night.
