Joe Flacco returns to practice

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is back on the field.

Flacco did not practice or play the last two weeks because of a hip injury and he remained out of practice on Wednesday, but things changed on Thursday. Flacco is working with the rest of the team at practice a few days before the Ravens will head to Atlanta to face the Falcons.

Official word on how much Flacco did at practice will have to wait until after the session, but Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic called him “definitely limited” in the portion of practice open to the media.

Head coach John Harbaugh said on Wednesday that it will be a process for Flacco to get back on track after missing the last two weeks. Harbaugh did not say whether that means Lamar Jackson will be starting for the third straight week, but any talk of a process certainly points in that direction.

  1. By “definitely limited,” does he mean he just stood there like a statue when lining up at wide receiver on the Ravens trick plays?

  2. He hasn’t been in the playoffs in 3 years and yet he STILL has more career playoff wins than the following

    Aaron Rodgers
    Eli Manning
    Russel Wilson
    Drew Brees
    Phillip Rivers
    Matt Ryan
    Cam Newton
    Andrew Luck

    Historically Flacco had played really well in the postseason. Numerous times he had impressive performances against the Patriots.

    Just shows you what can happen when you’re consistently surrounded by a good defense and have the benefit of guys like Pitta and Ray Rice to bail out an otherwise mediocre passing game.

    He is also .500 since signing his monster deal.
    What is your point?
    Wins are a team stat, not a QB stat.

  6. I dont think anyone is a debating Flacco’s postseason success. Although he was 3-2 his first 2 seasons with a 1/6 TD/INT ratio. However outside of the postseason, there is the regular season where you must do well to make the playoffs. His postseason success doesnt mean he isnt a very average QB in the regular season. Flacco has had 2 seasons with a QB rating over 90.

  7. Get well soon Joe. Whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing, you give the Ravens the best chance to win.

  8. How adorable that Joe lives in the empty little heads of Patriot fans. They are so terrified of him it’s hilarious. Don’t worry. The Patriots will get clown stomped again this year. It’s just a matter of when.

    He’s played in 15 playoff games, with a mediocre passer rating of 88.6. Ravens went 2-2 v Pats in that time but in one of those wins he was virtually absent with a passer rating of 10.0 (ten!), 34yds, 1 int. As a Pats fan I can admit the Ravens’ D (especially earlier in Joe’s career) was championship quality and something to be feared, but not Joe, never Joe, sorry.

  10. Name one current or future hall of famer Joe’s ever had at his disposal? I’ll wait…

    Even Anquan and Steve Smith were on the last years of their great careers NOT in their prime.

    No Gronk, no AB, no AJ Green, no Antonio Gates, no Julio, no hall of famers.

    Lastly, when he won the Superbowl the Ravens had the 17th ranked defense.

    Ravens vs Pats Playoffs:

    2014 – 28 for 45 292 4 TDS 2 Ints 92.1
    2012 – 21 for 36 240 3 TDS 0 Ints 106.2
    2011 – 22 for 36 306 2 TDS 1 INT 95.4
    2009 – 4 for 10 34 0 TDS 1 INT 10.0 – Game was never in doubt

    But lets not let facts get in the way of a bad narrative.

  12. Good points Humble. Also, that great Ravens D set a SB record for giving up the MOST points of any winning team during their playoff run.

    ————————————————-

    Actually W/L ARE a QB stat. In fact, like pitchers in baseball or goaltenders in hockey, they’re considered so integral to the teams success or failure that they are the only players the stat attaches to.

    Wrong he has the same amount of wins as AR. I would also suggest putting Eli on that list being that he’s won 2 SB’s is kind of silly. Your point is valid Joe Flacco has one 10 playoff games and 1 superbowl. He statistically isn’t a very good QB though without a boat load of help around him. Lamar will get the starts and Joe will be playing for the Donkey’s or fish next year.

    So what stats are not team stats? Passing yards/TDs? Did the QB block and catch the passes?

  16. Ravens fan here…I hope Flacco doesn’t play another down for the Ravens. This team is not a contender, it’s no sense in wasting anymore time with Flacfo. The future is now. Lamar needs to get all the experience he can get because Flacco is GONE after this year.
