Baltimore Ravens: Joe Flacco expected to be ready for opener

ESPNAPI_IMG_NO_ALTEXT_Value Ravens QB Joe Flacco Won't Play In Preseason, Expected To Be Ready For Week 1

In back-to-back drives for the Redskins, the franchise-tagged starting passer generated a pair of ugly three-and-outs in a lopsided 23-3 loss to the Ravens.

While the Ravens would always like to have Flacco on the field to build chemistry with the rest of the offense, they don't want to risk Flacco aggravating his injury in a preseason game.

The team added that the plan is for Flacco to be the starting quarterback against Cincinnati in the regular season opener on September 10. However, the rookie out of Liberty likely won't factor into the team's contingency plan for Joe Flacco, who remains hampered by a back injury.

Flacco injured his back shortly before reporting for Ravens training camp on July 21. Every time he's hit, there will be some nervous moments.

The new findings are based on face-to-face interviews with nationally representative samples of adults in 2001-2002 and 2012-2013. There "is and always has been" a lack of awareness regarding the health dangers of drinking excessively, Schuckit says.

Without Flacco available, the Ravens have been using Ryan Mallett as their top QB.

There will be a question of how sharp Flacco can be right away.

Flacco has been one of the most durable quarterbacks in the NFL. That should help him get his rhythm down with his new offensive additions Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead. There's a chance he could be rusty early on.

This is pretty good news for Baltimore fans.
