Joe Flacco won't play in the preseason Expected to be ready Week 1 By: Mike Krueger | Aug 11 2017, 3:00 pm
The team now has a more definitive timeframe for QB Joe Flacco’s return. The 10th-year standout has been re-examined, and his progress from a back issue is good. He will return to practice in the preseason, but he is not expected to play in these games. The plan is for Flacco to be the starting quarterback against Cincinnati in the regular season opener on Sept. 10. (BaltimoreRavens.com)
FFToday's Take:The Ravens are wisely going to take it easy with their starting quarterback. It's a little uneasy that Flacco won't see any live action before Week 1 but fantasy owners can continue drafting Flacco as a low-end QB2 with confidence.
