Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco suffered an injury to his hip during last week’s loss to the Steelers. He’s undergoing tests to determine the severity of the injury.
There is a possibility that he can’t play Sunday against the Bengals. If he can’t, rookie backup Lamar Jackson would get his first NFL start.
Via Pro Football Talk:
The Ravens quarterback downplayed the injury after the game.
Baltimore has an open date this week, but if Flacco can’t play, rookie Lamar Jackson would make his first start in a critical showdown with the Bengals.
Flacco, 33, has missed only six games in his 11-year career, starting the past 41 games.
Even if Flacco isn’t too injured to play, it might already be Lamar Jackson time in Baltimore. I’m sure there are Ravens fans who are ready to see what the rookie can do.
