The Ravens’ season may end with quarterback Lamar Jackson in the locker room.
Jackson, the reigning NFL MVP, entered the concussion protocol and eventually was ruled out of Saturday night’s AFC divisional round playoff game after Bills defenders sent him crashing to the turf in the closing seconds of the third quarter.
Jackson was sent scrambling to retrieve an errant snap, eventually managing to throw the ball away, but ate a pretty nasty hit in the process.
Jackson jogged to the locker room following the hit, which ruled out any kind of leg injury.
Baltimore later announced Jackson was in the concussion protocol, and then followed up by saying he would not return to the game.
QB Lamar Jackson has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Backup quarterback Tyler Huntley entered the game in relief of Jackson.
Jackson was having a less-than-good game: 14-for-24 passing,162 yards and a pick-six.
The Ravens are trailing 17-3 in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter.
