In a radio interview, Joe Flacco (ACL, MCL) called his current cap number "not really realistic" and said he's open to restructuring his deal.
"I want to win so I want to do everything we can to get something done. I don’t know exactly what that is or exactly what’s that going to be because we haven’t talked about it yet," Flacco said. "I’m open to doing something. I want to be here for a while. I want to play football here. That’s what it’s all about." GM Ozzie Newsome has said the goal is to build a team without touching Flacco's $28.55 million cap hit, but that may be wishful thinking. Flacco added his rehab is going well and predicted he will be ready for Week 1. Jan 21 - 9:08 AM

Joe Flacco (knee) said the offense is "closer than we've ever been" to being "really explosive."

"Obviously, there are going to be some things that we need to change and some things that we need to do better," Flacco said, "but I think there are a lot of good things, also." With OC Marc Trestman likely to return, Flacco will play under the same offensive coordinator for two years in a row for the first time in four seasons. That coupled with the hopefully healthy returns of Steve Smith, Breshad Perriman, Justin Forsett and Flacco himself should give the offense more firepower.

Joe Flacco will undergo ACL surgery on Tuesday, December 8.

Flacco tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee on November 22. The Ravens had to wait a couple of weeks for the procedure to be performed because Flacco needed to overcome swelling in his MCL. Although Flacco will be in a race to be ready for the start of training camp in 2016, we would be surprised if he's not all systems go for Week 1 of next season.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed Monday that Joe Flacco tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee.

He'll be placed on injured reserve, ending his season. The Ravens will have to wait for the swelling to dissipate in Flacco's MCL before operating on his ACL, potentially extending Flacco's return timetable. The tentative expectation remains that Flacco will be ready for Week 1 of the 2016 season.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports Joe Flacco (torn ACL) has a "real good chance" to be ready for the start of the 2016 season.

The complicating factor will be his MCL, which may have also been torn against the Rams. Flacco will certainly miss the entire offseason program, and he is unlikely to see any snaps in the preseason. Matt Schaub will finish out this season as the Ravens' starter.

Joe Flacco suffered a torn ACL and possibly torn MCL in the fourth quarter of the Ravens' Week 11 win over the Rams.

Flacco suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter on the game-winning field-goal drive. He could barely walk afterward, but was able to stay in to spike the ball and set Justin Tucker up for the winning kick. Flacco will miss the remainder of the season and be in doubt for training camp and possibly Week 1 next season. Matt Schaub will take over at quarterback for the Ravens, making them an offense to stream defenses against minus their starting quarterback, running back, and No. 1 receiver. Justin Forsett suffered a broken arm in the first quarter against St. Louis.

Joe Flacco completed 27-of-43 passes for 299 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Ravens' 16-13, Week 11 win over the Rams.

The Rams gifted this win to Baltimore, blowing a 10-point, fourth-quarter lead that felt like a 30-point advantage. Flacco played mostly-terrible for much of the day, as his two interceptions were horrific overthrown lob passes that landed directly in Rams defenders' hands. Fortunately for Flacco, Rams starter Case Keenum was even worse. Flacco's touchdown was a three-yard strike in the fourth quarter after a Todd Gurley lost fumble. Flacco will be a middling QB2 next week at Cleveland.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 04:33:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 34-of-45 passes for 316 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Ravens' 22-20, Week 10 loss to the Jaguars.

Flacco started off pretty hot with touchdowns of 10 and 21 yards to tight ends Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams, respectively. But after that, Flacco turned the ball over three times with his two picks and sack-fumble on three-straight second-half possessions. He later found Chris Givens for what had the looks of a game-winning 14-yard touchdown. But the Jaguars got the ball back late and with the help of a silly 15-yard penalty were able to kick a 53-yard winning field goal. Flacco produced in a prime spot Sunday, but will be back on the back-end QB2 map next week against the Rams at home.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 04:54:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 25-of-37 passes for 319 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 8 win over the Chargers.

He added two carries for four yards, including a two-yard rushing score. Most concerning for Flacco's going-forward outlook was the Ravens' loss of Steve Smith Sr. to a ruptured Achilles' tendon, which will force Kamar Aiken into Baltimore's top receiver role and some mix of Chris Givens and Jeremy Ross into more responsibility. Although he has flukishly scored three rushing TDs, Flacco is on pace for a disappointing 20:16 TD-to-INT ratio as a passer through eight games. He'll be a mid-range QB2 in the second half of the season, albeit with a favorable Week 10 matchup against the Jaguars following the Ravens' Week 9 bye.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 05:18:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 26-of-40 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Ravens' 26-18, Week 7 loss to the Cardinals on Monday night.

Flacco and the Ravens looked out of this one midway through the fourth quarter, as they trailed 26-10, but the Ravens blocked a punt at the one-yard line, and Flacco tossed a quick touchdown to Kyle Juszczyk to pull Baltimore within eight points. The offense got the ball back at the 2:00 warning, and Flacco got inside the five-yard line, but heaved up a jump-ball in the end zone as he was falling backward and was picked off by S Tony Jefferson. The Ravens' eight-point loss is their biggest of the season, despite being 1-6. They'll try to right the ship next week at home against the Chargers.
Mon, Oct 26, 2015 11:46:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 33-of-53 throws for 343 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to the 49ers.

Surrounded by little talent on this year's injury-ravaged Ravens, Flacco was picked off twice in the first half Sunday at San Francisco. The highlight of Baltimore's passing game was a 34-yard touchdown lob to Steve Smith Sr. with two defenders in the area, which Smith corralled on a circus catch. Flacco ultimately wound up paying dividends as a two-quarterback-league start on sheer volume, and by following the Smith TD with a two-yard scoring strike to Kamar Aiken on a rollout. Through six games, Flacco has an 8:7 TD-to-INT ratio. Flacco gets a tougher draw against the Cardinals in Arizona next week.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 07:49:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 19-of-35 passes for 210 yards and one touchdown, and rushed twice for touchdowns in the Ravens' Week 5 loss to the Browns.

Both of Flacco's rushing TDs occurred at the one-yard line; the first occurred on a naked bootleg and the second on a play where Flacco dove over the pile. Flacco will head to Week 6 at San Francisco with a 6:5 passing TD-to-INT ratio. He'll be a two-quarterback-league option only facing a 49ers defense that has played far better at home than on the road this season. The Ravens hope Steve Smith Sr. (back) will return next week.
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 05:58:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 20-of-33 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Ravens' 23-20 overtime win over the Steelers in Week 4.

In a game that was brutal on the eyes, Flacco also committed three fumbles, losing one. Flacco was expected to find holes in the Steelers' porous secondary, but instead struggled all night. It didn't help that he lost Steve Smith Sr. and Michael Campanaro to back injuries in the fourth quarter, but Flacco simply wasn't crisp, bungling the clock and taking a few bad sacks. Both of his turnovers were completely inexcusable, though his touchdown was an absolute dime to Kamar Aiken. Flacco is playing up-and-down football as his weapons fight injuries, but he'll be an intriguing QB2 against the Browns' struggling pass defense in Week 5.
Thu, Oct 1, 2015 11:56:00 PM

Joe Flacco tallied 362 yards on 32-of-49 passing with two touchdowns and one interception in the Ravens' Week 3 loss to the Bengals.

Flacco looked out of sorts in the first half, floating weak passes into traffic and throwing off his back foot. Once he rediscovered Steve Smith in the second half, he was practically unstoppable. Baltimore’s running game was dormant for most of the day, putting extra pressure on Flacco and his receivers. Look for Flacco to shred Pittsburgh's porous secondary in Week 4.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 05:02:00 PM

Joe Flacco completed 32-of-45 passes for 385 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Ravens' Week 2 loss to the Raiders.

Both of Flacco's touchdown strikes went to Crockett Gillmore. Flacco's interception was picked off by Raiders nickel back Neiko Thorpe to end the game. While Baltimore's pass protection looked much better on Sunday -- allowing zero sacks -- the offense is still painfully short on weapons, and leans too heavily on 36-year-old Steve Smith Sr. Flacco will be a QB2 when Baltimore hosts Cincinnati's stingy pass defense in Week 3.
