Joe Flacco to return to practice but not play in preseason games

ESPNAPI_IMG_NO_ALTEXT_Value

The Ravens announced Friday that ailing quarterback Joe Flacco won't play in the preseason as he continues to recover from a back injury. Add in John Urschel retiring at the start of training camp and Darren Waller's one-year suspension, and this franchise is going to need contributions from a lot of fresh faces to compete.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will soon return to practice, but he won't play in a game before Baltimore opens the regular season on September 10 at Cincinnati.

It was originally thought that Flacco would only miss about a week, but he has now sat for two weeks.

Markets slide, dollar slumps as North Korea fears spike
South Korea's KOSPI fell 1.7 percent to its lowest since May 24, but its losses for the week are a relatively modest 3.2 percent. Investors again sought safe-haven assets such as gold and the Swiss franc, helping gold hit a more two-month high.

Quarterback Joe Flacco will not play in any preseason games, but is expected to be under center for Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals on September 10. In his absence, the Ravens played three quarterbacks, Josh Woodrum, Ryan Mallett and Dustin Vaughan. However, the Ravens claim there is nothing to fear.

Flacco has been extremely durable during his National Football League career. All six of those absences came in 2015, after tearing his ACL and his MCL in his left knee.

The 32-year-old has been durable over his career, which has been spent exclusively with the Ravens.
