Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson tweeted Thursday that his knee "remains unstable" as he works his way back from a Grade 2 PCL sprain that's forced him to miss the last five games.

"I'm still in good spirits as I continue with treatments on the road to recovery," he said. "I wish I could be out there with my guys more than anything, but I can't give a 100% of myself to my guys and fans. I'm still hopeful we still have a chance."

The former league MVP hasn't practiced since suffering the injury in a Week 13 victory over the Denver Broncos. He's yet to participate in any sessions this week and is reportedly in doubt to face the Cincinnati Bengals in Sunday's wild-card game.

Tyler Huntley started four of the five games Jackson missed. The former didn't play the regular-season finale due to shoulder and wrist injuries and was a limited participant in both practices this week. If Huntley can't go against the Bengals, Anthony Brown - who started in Week 18 - would likely lead under center.

Jackson put up an 8-4 record across 12 starts this season with 17 passing touchdowns to seven interceptions. He also pitched in 764 yards and three scores on the ground. The Ravens have gone 2-3 without him.
