Joe Flacco has concussion and needed stitches for ear
Joe Flacco suffered a concussion and needed stitches for his ear after being hit in the head by Kiko Alonso on Thursday night.
The Baltimore Ravens quarterback was nailed by the Miami Dolphins linebacker on a third down scramble late in the second quarter. Flacco’s helmet came off on the hit and his ear was cut. He was taken into the locker room for concussion protocol; it was clear that he had been concussed.
CBS later announced that Flacco indeed suffered a concussion. They also said he had stitches on his ear.
