Ravens say Joe Flacco will be ready for Week 1

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

He went 9-of-18 for 58 yards in the first half against the Washington Redskins Thursday night and finished with a 13-0 lead.

"I thought he played winning football", Harbaugh said.

However, the plan remains for the veteran quarterback to be ready when the Ravens open the regular season on Sept.10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Ravens have also lost starting left guard Alex Lewis (shoulder) and receiver-returner Tim White (thumb) for the season. Backup quarterback Ryan Mallett has struggled in training camp and the preseason at a time when the Ravens have expressed interest in controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Flacco signed a three-year, $66.4 million extension in March 2015.

Flacco has been extremely durable during his National Football League career.

The Baltimore Ravens have been without quarterback Joe Flacco for the entirety of training camp due to a back issue.

He threw for 4,317 yards last season - which ranked No. 7 in the National Football League - alongside 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

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.
