Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco walked to the interview room following the Ravens’ 18-16 victory over the Detroit Lions with a slight limp but looking significantly better than he did after he took a helmet to his left knee about midway through the fourth quarter.
“It wasn’t really bothering me once the initial hit,” Flacco said. “I was probably more scared than anything from just what I felt and also just trying to get a couple of yards out of it. Yeah, it feels fine. It feels strong.”
Asked if he may need more testing on his left knee, Flacco said, “I have no idea. I’ll have to talk to the trainers and see what the protocol is. I’m not used to anything like this.”
Flacco took a helmet to the knee in the fourth quarter. He has started every game in his NFL career, a streak that reached 107 on Monday night, the story said. The piece also pointed out that no one around the team seemed concerned about his status for next week, a home game against the Patriots, but it's probably something to keep an eye on as Flacco should be a QB2 option.
