Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has left Sunday’s game. The Ravens are playing the Atlanta Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.

Jackson suffered a concussion in the third quarter. He is not expected to return.

He’ll replaced by Robert Griffin III for the rest of the game, or at least until he is cleared to come back. Griffin III is the team’s only healthy quarterback, as Joe Flacco is also injured.

Jackson took a foot to the face by offensive line Ronnie Stanley. Following a three-yard gain on a rushing play, Stanley’s cleat caught the rookie signal-caller in the face.

He reportedly told a trainer that he felt dizzy after the incident. That then triggered the quarterback to be entered into the concussion protocol.

He was checked out in the blue medical tent on the sidelines. A short-time later, the medical professionals took Jackson to the locker room, where he was checked out even more.

When he was in the locker room, Jackson had to go through more tests to ensure that his brain was fine.

“They just wanted to go through the protocol,” Jackson said after the game. “When I got in the back, I asked one of our trainers, ‘Man, what’s the score? ‘ He told me it was still the same score. So I’m like, ‘I’m cool.’ But they need to hurry up and get me out there. I wanted to get back on the field and help my team win.”
