"It's something different," Jackson said after Friday's practice. "But it's good, though."
Jackson is expected to start Sunday at the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-7) after practicing for the second straight day. He missed Wednesday's practice with what Ravens coach John Harbaugh described as "an issue from the game."
This is the second time that Jackson has been listed on the injury report with a hip injury. In Week 7, he was limited for one practice before being a full participant the rest of the week. Jackson eventually led Baltimore to a 23-20 win over the Cleveland Browns but he only threw for a season-low 120 yards passing.
Asked how he's feeling with his current hip injury, Jackson said, "It's getting better."
On Sunday, the first-place Ravens (7-3) won their fourth straight game in defeating the Carolina Panthers 13-3. It was the fewest points that Baltimore had scored in a win in Jackson's five-year career. He also only rushed for 31 yards on 11 carries for a season-low 2.82 yards per attempt.
Jackson paused for a second and shook his head side to side when asked if the hip injury bothered him in Sunday's game.
"It was all right," Jackson said. "We won."
Through 11 weeks, Jackson ranks ninth with 16 touchdown passes and 15th with 666 yards rushing.
Harbaugh is also "optimistic" and "hopeful" that running back Gus Edwards (hamstring/knee) will play Sunday after missing the last two games.
