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.
