Baltimore Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson is expected to make his first NFL start on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, as veteran Joe Flacco is unlikely to play due to a hip injury.

Flacco is officially listed as doubtful for the Week 11 divisional matchup.

Jackson, the No. 32 pick in April's draft, has played sparingly this season. He's completed seven of 12 pass attempts for 87 yards and one touchdown over nine games. Jackson has also added 28 carries for 139 yards and another score.

Flacco won't need hip surgery, per Schefter, but is in jeopardy of missing next Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.
