Flacco gets knee brace, will be limited in practice

We reported last night that Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will take it easy over the next few days after being hit by a helmet below the knee on Monday night.

The Ravens have provided a more concrete explanation of what that means.  The team announced on Wednesday that he has been fitted with a knee brace, and that he’ll be limited in practice.

While Flacco reportedly didn’t need an MRI to assess potential damage to his knee, it’s obvious that there’s an injury of some sort.  And the use of a brace confirms what we all saw on Monday night — the low hit from Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy scared Flacco.

The inability of Flacco to fully prepare for Sunday’s date with the Patriots should give them some concern, too, as the defending Super Bowl champs try to extend a late-season four-game winning streak.

    What’s to prepare for? Throw 55 yard jump ball, get PI penalty, repeat.

    I hope it’s not the same knee brace that turned RG3 from superman into Clark Kent…

    If he continues playing and gets more seriously injured, it’s Harbaugh’s fault right?

    They’re playing the Patriots at home. Did anyone see the Patriots last weekend? Joe only needs one leg.

    There may be a little psychological warfare going on here vis-a-vis the Patriots game planning. Kinda like Tom Brady being listed as “questionable” for a decade.

    Kremis, Joe has almost alway played horrible against the steelers. The defense and kicker beat the steelers cause Joe couldn’t get the ball in the end zone on thanksgiving.

    says a lot for the steelers
