Joe Flacco

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is back practicing today after missing the last two practices for the Ravens with a shoulder injury according to the team’s official twitter feed.

Normally, Fridays are simple walk-throughs, but it has been unclear whether or not Flacco would be able to play this weekend. This is a situation to monitor for both fantasy football and real life this week.

The Ravens play at the New York Jets on Sunday and could decide to rest their franchise quarterback if they feel like they don’t need him to win. Flacco’s shoulder will need to be healthy¬†enough to complete throws and take some big hits against the Jets for him to start.

Otherwise, the Ravens would just be better off letting Ryan Mallett start this week and having Flacco heal up for the coming stretch run.
