Joe Flacco won't play in preseason, expected to start Week 1


Joe Flacco will not play in the preseason, but the Ravens plan for him to start the regular-season opener in Cincinnati on September 10, the team announced. There was some optimism that it might be shorter, but with the preseason underway, the Ravens are choosing the route of caution.

Flacco was re-examined and his progress from a back issue "is good", according to a statement from the team.

Quarterback Joe Flacco will not play in any preseason games, but is expected to be under center for Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals on September 10.

Flacco has yet to take a snap this summer because of a bad back. At this point, the team did say they're encouraged by the progress the DE product has made.

The Ravens also announced Friday that starting left guard Alex Lewis (shoulder) and receiver-returner Tim White (thumb) will miss the regular season.

Losing Flacco would be detrimental to the Ravens' chances this season, especially given all of the other injuries that have piled up.

Flacco has only missed six games during his National Football League tenure, while his 122 regular-season game streak came to a halt in 2015 once he tore two ligaments in his knee.
