Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced that rookie Lamar Jackson will remain the team's starting quarterback for its Week 15 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Veteran pivot Joe Flacco has fully recovered from his hip injury and will serve as the backup.

Jackson took over for the injured Flacco in Week 11 and won his first three games as the starter before an overtime loss to the AFC-leading Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14.

Flacco told reporters he was disappointed to learn he wouldn't immediately regain the starting job.

The 7-6 Ravens will enter Week 15 as the sixth seed in the AFC, but they're followed closely by the Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, and Tennessee Titans, who all have the same record.
