BALTIMORE (93.7 The Fan) - With an offense absolutely decimated with injuries, the Steelers need every advantage they can get into the postseason.

On Monday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced that quarterback Lamar Jackson will not play on Sunday against the Steelers.

Baltimore has the #1 spot locked up in the AFC so with nothing to play for, they are resting a number of starters.
