Joe Flacco reportedly ‘very unlikely’ to play against Bengals

Joe Flacco

The Baltimore Ravens are 4-5 heading into Week 11 and fighting for a playoff spot, and it sounds like they will be relying on a backup quarterback to help keep them in the hunt.

Joe Flacco has missed practice all week with a hip injury, and Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that it is “very unlikely” he will be able to play against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

The question now becomes who will draw the start — rookie Lamar Jackson or veteran Robert Griffin III. Jackson missed practice on Thursday with a stomach illness, but he was back on the field Friday. Both players have received first-team reps this week, though Ravens coach John Harbaugh says he is not going to name a starter in advance.

With the Ravens still in playoff contention and Harbaugh’s job basically on the line, the coach will likely start the QB that he believes gives the team a better chance to win. Fans want to see what Jackson can do, but there’s no guarantee we won’t see RG3.
