Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (hip) is not practicing on Wednesday. Head coach John Harbaugh said Flacco won't need to practice in order to start in Week 11 against the Bengals, but it's looking right now like Flacco will be on the wrong side of questionable this Sunday. Both rookie Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin III will be options to start if Flacco cannot go. Jackson has more upside because of his versatility. No matter who is starting under center for Baltimore this Sunday, they'll merely be a QB2 option in two-quarterback leagues.
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said that quarterback Joe Flacco (hip) won't need to practice at all this week in order to play in Week 11 against the Bengals. "I dont know whos going to play," Harbaugh said. "Well prepare all the [quarterbacks] to whatever degree we think we need to, in terms of what the plan is." Harbaugh also admitted that having mystery around who will play under center will make it tougher for the Bengals to prepare for. Flacco has 12 touchdowns and six interceptions for an 84.2 passer rating, which ranks 27th in the NFL. He has just three touchdowns and two interceptions while averaging 225.6 yards a game during their three-game losing streak. Flacco will likely be a game-time decision, but ultimately we'd expect him to play. If he does, he'll remain a mediocre QB2 option, even in a great matchup. Rookie Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin III are other options if Flacco can't go.
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh isn't committing to quarterback Joe Flacco(hip) for Week 11 against the Bengals. "He's getting treatment. We'll see. We'll know more as the week goes on. I'm hopefully all of our guys play, including Joe," Harbaugh said. It's a bit surprising with the Ravens coming off their bye week, but it does make some sense with Flacco struggling in October after a hot start to the year. Rookie Lamar Jackson has had minimal chances in the first half of the season but certainly would provide upside as the team looks to get back in the division race. Even against a crumbling Cincy defense that just fired their defensive coordinator, Flacco is an unappealing QB2 if he starts this Sunday.
