Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco injured his hip in Sunday’s game against the Steelers, putting his status into question for Week 11.
Multiple sources reported Friday afternoon that Flacco is seeking medical opinions and undergoing tests on how to treat the injury. Veteran reporter Jason La Canfora reports that while Flacco could try to play through the injury, surgery or “prolonged rest” seems more likely.
The Ravens are on a bye this week, and La Canfora says the Ravens should know more about Flacco’s condition next week ahead of their Week 11 game against the Bengals.
In the meantime, the team had already been seeking a way to get rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson more involved in the offense. In fact, Jackson had already taken a more active role recently, lining up on the field for 27 plays the past two weeks. He had played only 29 snaps between Week 2 and Week 7.
“I do want him on the field,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said of Jackson on Monday. “And when I say I want him on the field more, it’s because he’s such a good player and you want to put your good players on the field. That’s where we’re at with that.”
