“I just got off the Covid list, so I’ve got to talk to my team about this and try to see how they feel about it,” he said. “I’m going to keep grinding as much as I can about it, and go from there.”
He was asked again if he would get vaccinated.
“We’ll see. Talking to the doctors. We’ll see,” he said. He later added he felt getting the vaccine was a personal decision.
“I’m just going to worry about that with my family, keep my feelings to my family and myself. I’m focused on getting better right now. I can’t dwell on that right now on how everybody else feels — just trying to get back into a great routine,” he said.
Jackson tested positive for the second time in July before training camp and said he was upset by it.
“What the? Again?! It was crazy. I was heartbroken because I wasn’t looking forward to that all. Right before camp it was like, not again. Not right now. But it’s over with,” Jackson said, adding he was fatigued and slept a lot.
“But I’m glad to be back. Ten days being off, I didn’t like it at all,” he said.
Vaccinated players that test positive and remain asymptomatic are eligible to return after testing negative twice in a 24-hour span, according to league protocols.
Unvaccinated players are required to quarantine for 10 days and then test negative before they’re able to return.
Jackson said Monday he didn’t feel that having an unvaccinated quarterback was a disadvantage to the Ravens.
“I’m just going to follow the NFL protocols as much as I can, best I can. I’m not worried about it. Last year I came off Covid, I felt like we did pretty good,” he said. “This year, I’m trying to do the same thing if anything. Just like I said, I’m going to follow the protocols.”
