Joe Flacco returns to practice field for Ravens

AP

The biggest news for the Ravens Saturday had nothing to do with roster cuts.

Via Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, quarterback Joe Flacco was back on the practice field Saturday after missing most of the preseason with a back problem.

That’s a huge first step for Flacco and a team that could use some good injury news for a change.

In addition to their quarterback, they had running back Danny Woodhead, wide receiver Breshad Perriman and left tackle Ronnie Stanley back on the field as well, giving them their first look at a number of key parts together in weeks.

That’s good news in advance of next week’s opener against the Bengals.

  1. Flacco, Woodhead, Perriman and Stanley so in other words the bulk of their offense returns. Previous poster makes a great point about their schedule this year compared to last year when they had both eastern conferences this season they have the relatively weak AFCS & NFCN along with their own division that was the softest in the conference last year.

  2. It’s a positive sign but don’t yet take it as meaning he’s ok for game impacts/sacks. He’s 6 weeks after what was probably a minor herniated (slipped) disc. The biggest fear now might be bringing him back too soon, taking 1 sack and gone for most of the season if he re-aggravates what’s still likely a weak point. So much rests on Flacco I’d hold him out for at least a couple more weeks.
