Week 7 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Friday
Ravens QB Joe Flacco (right shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. The full practice indicates that Flacco will play this week. The Ravens play early on Sunday and Flacco has a nice matchup with the Jets, who have struggled against the pass all year.
Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 7. HC Bruce Arians said that Palmer looked “fine” at practice. He’s going to play against the Seahawks.
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 7. Reports came out earlier this week that Roethlisberger is going to miss 4-6 weeks after knee surgery, but our source in Pittsburgh believes that he’s “playing up” the injury to look “tough” when he returns in Week 9 after the team’s bye. We’re recommending that owners stream the position and not cut ties with Roethlisberger until we see how his recovery is going around Week 9.
