Jackson (knee) will miss the rest of the season, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

He suffered the knee injury in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, and will now leave the Ravens a little shorthanded in the secondary.

Jackson suffered a right knee injury during Sunday's win over the Jaguars, the Ravens' official website reports.

The injury appeared to be fairly serious, as Jackson was unable to put any weight on his right leg while being carried off the field. The Ravens have been devastated by injuries at the cornerback position this season, and the team was forced to turn to 2013 UDFA Rashaan Melvin for the fourth quarter of Sunday's game. Melvin was excellent down the stretch, making him the likely starter across from Lardarius Webb for Week 16, if Jackson is unable to play.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is optimistic that Jackson (toe) will return from IR/designated to return for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, the Ravens' official website reports.

Jackson would likely return as either the starting right cornerback or nickel corner, and while Jackson mostly struggled earlier this season, Baltimore needs all the help it can get in the secondary. Converted safety Anthony Levine has been picked on as the starting right cornerback, leading to 19 tackles (14 solo) over the past two weeks. Jackson still wouldn't be much of an IDP option, but he could perhaps emerge as one before the end of the season.

Jackson (toe) is making good progress in his recovery, and the Ravens expect him to return from IR/designated to return for Week 14 against the Dolphins, CSN Baltimore reports.

With fellow cornerback Jimmy Smith (foot) out for the season, Jackson may come back to the Ravens as the starting right corner. In the meantime, the team will ride with Danny Gorrer and/or Tramain Jacobs, both of whom were just signed this week, across from Lardarius Webb.

Jackson (toe) has been placed on the Ravens' injured reserve/designated to return list, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Jackson suffered a severely sprained toe during last weekend's game and will now be sidelined until at least Week 15. His absence comes as a considerable blow to the Ravens' defense, as Jackson started four of the team's five games thus far due to fellow cornerback Lardarius Webb (back) being injured. Prior to going down Sunday, Jackson had registered 19 tackles (16 solo) on the campaign. In a corresponding roster move, Baltimore signed Dominique Franks on Wednesday to improve the depth of their secondary.

Jackson is dealing with a severely sprained toe, the Baltimore Sun reports.

The report suggests that Jackson -- who has 19 tackles in five games to date -- could be be placed on injured reserve-designated to return by the Ravens, which would represent a significant hit to the team's depth at cornerback.

Jackson (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Jackson suffered a concussion in Week 2 against the Steelers, though he's had extra time to recover with that game coming last Thursday. He'll work as a nickel corner Sunday, with Lardarius Web and Jimmy Smith both healthy.

Jackson (concussion) is probable for Sunday's game in Cleveland, the Ravens' official website reports.

With Lardarius Webb (back) also probable, Jackson will likely work as the nickel corner against a Cleveland offense that lacks talent at wide receiver. Jackson might warrant deep-league IDP consideration later in the season if he gets another chance to step in for Webb or Jimmy Smith as a starter.

Jackson (concussion) was a full practice participant both Wednesday and Thursday.

Jackson thus seems likely to play against the Browns on Sunday, but his role remains rather uncertain. If Lardarius Webb (back) returns, Jackson will likely work as the nickel corner. If not, either Jackson or Chykie Brown will start across from Jimmy Smith. Brown got the nod in Week 1, but was then replaced by Jackson for Week 2. IDP owners likely want to avoid the situation altogether, as neither Brown nor Jackson offers much long-term appeal.

Jackson left Thursday's contest against the Steelers with a concussion and won't return, the Baltimore Sun reports.

The loss of Jackson on Thursday further taxes a Ravens' secondary that was already operating without fellow cornerback Lardarius Webb.
