He's expected to miss 3-6 weeks with a back/disc injury. It is from Rapaport so it might not be entirely reliable but still that's pretty bad especially considering back injuries almost always stick around and our o-line is garbage.

Nah we're gonna see the ravens beat themselves over the head with a Mallet.

Good thing to fake an injury before he gets killed behind our patchwork oline.

Then we just have to accept that Mallett is going to get killed. Well, thats life probably. Poor Mallett.

Wouldn't be shocked if Joe missed the season. That happens a lot actually. Guy is supposed to miss a few weeks, and then is out for several months/the season. Disappointing.

Any indication of how the injury occurred? Through lifting? Practice?

Apparently hurt it lifting. Adam Schefter reported that Flacco should be back within a week.

I read he is going to get an MRI. It could be a pinched nerve, a muscle a slipped disc. This could be anywhere from a week to the season. No one knows until we got the result.

He had MRI yesterday, ravens still say week of rest for now. The only positive I see is that it happened a week ago, and the pain just flared up today. ID imagine if it were a serious injury, you usually know right away,

I'm not buying into Rappaport's story. Everybody else is saying the Ravens think Flacco will be fine with a week of rest, and like paraven said the issue only flared up a while after he actually tweaked it.

Another quarterback is going to be signed though. Will be interesting to see if it's Kaepernick.

So Mallett is already playing bad and throwing temper tantrums in camp.

Not looking good.

Having a veteran may be necessary even after picking up Drew Olsen
