Flacco practiced on Wednesday, in limited fashion

It’s been a strange week for Joe Flacco, and for those trying to keep up with his status.

It started on Monday night, when Flacco took a helmet from Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy to the lower leg.  After the game, Flacco said his knee felt “strong.”  (Or possibly “quite strong.”)

Then, ESPN reported that he wouldn’t need an MRI.  Then, we reported that Flacco would take it easy for a few days.

Then, the team announced that Flacco had been fitted with a knee brace, and that he’d be limited in practice.  Then, the team said on its online injury report that Flacco didn’t practice.  Then, ESPN reported that Flacco had an MRI after all, and that he has a mild MCL sprain.

The Ravens advise PFT that Flacco did indeed practice on Wednesday, on a limited basis.  According to the team, its website inadvertently listed Flacco as not practicing.

More importantly, there’s no reason to believe Flacco won’t play.  He’ll apparently play with a brace, and he should consider himself lucky to not have a more serious knee injury.  But Flacco most likely will play against the Patriots, which will help the Ravens as they attempt to extend their current winning streak to five after a 4-6 start.

    Baltimore should be concerned about sunday; Brady is no pushover with a loss. However, Baltimore is no pushover at home. The knee creates an interesting element for Joe this week; we’ve never had to see him with this type of adversity.

    It looks as if PFT has Baltimore favored this sunday. I could be incorrect, but Baltimore usually plays as a better team when they compete as the underdog.

    I have no idea how many QBs need to get their MCL/ACL blown up beofre they ALL wear braces on their lead knees.

    His career, such as it was, is over. The downward spiral ensues.

    Looks like Flacco is back to normal. He practiced Wednesday in limited fashion and will play on Sunday in limited fashion.

    As long as Tucker is healthy they’re just fine. He’s the only Raven that can score any points.
