John Harbaugh won't name Ravens’ starting quarterback once Joe Flacco returns

John Harbaugh holding no practices this week amid Ravens' problems

John Harbaugh has no plans to announce who his quarterback will be next week.

Rookie Lamar Jackson has led the Ravens to back-to-back wins, including a 34-17 victory over the Raiders on Sunday, while playing in place of an injured Joe Flacco. Harbaugh, the 11th-year Baltimore coach, was noncommittal when he was asked if a healthy Flacco will return as the team’s starter.

“I’m not going to get into that for a number of reasons,” Harbaugh said (via The Athletic). “Whether that decision has been made or not is not important for anybody to know but us. If I decide to do it one way or the other, I don’t want our opponent to know.”

Jackson has tallied 328 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in his two starts. He has also added 190 yards and a score on the ground.

Flacco originally suffered a hip injury in the Ravens’ Week 9 loss to the Steelers. He has completed 61.2 percent of his passes and thrown 12 touchdowns, along with six interceptions, in nine games this season.

Flacco, who has not yet been cleared for full contact, is hoping to return to practice Tuesday, according to a report from CBS Sports.

Baltimore will face the Falcons in Week 13 action next Sunday.
