Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco didn’t practice on Wednesday and coach John Harbaugh updated his condition after the session came to an end.

Harbaugh said that Flacco is dealing with a “right shoulder issue” that he suffered at some point in last Sunday’s loss to the Giants, but didn’t report to the team until Monday. Flacco had an MRI on the injury and Harbaugh said that the team will monitor the situation all week while adding that he believes the quarterback will be able to play against the Jets this weekend.

Harbaugh also said that Flacco won’t have to practice during the week in order to play in the game and that he has confidence in Ryan Mallett in the event that he’s wrong about Flacco being in the lineup come Sunday.

Harbaugh also said that he’s less optimistic that linebacker Terrell Suggs will be able to play this weekend after tearing his biceps late in the game against the Giants, but that he doesn’t believe it will be an extended absence.

    Whatever he does in the privacy of his own home should be respected. Even if it leads to shoulder problems.

    Pretty boy Flacco has it made. His career hit lottery status that playoff game in Denver. Ice up son, take it slow….because the division is a cluster and 9-7 will probably win it.

    Ryan Mallett has one of the strongest arms in the league and you don’t need to be super accurate when heaving the jump ball – just throw it high and throw it far.

    Hope for a catch or pass interference

    Jump Ball Joe, over paid and over rated.

    Good luck with Mallett, one of my least favorite players ever.

    They also thought he’d be able to play before the season even started. Hasn’t gone as well as they hoped.

    Listen ladies, somewhere right this minute Marc Trestman is laughing his butt off. As you probably know, he was canned because of the dink and dunk passing game that roiled Sir Flacco and Herr Harbaugh. BUT, Trestman knew that this slop O-Line could not support the deep game and that Flacco would pay the price. Well, enjoy your laugh Mr. Trestman because the joke is on Harbaugh, Flacco and the Ravens.
