Flacco said that sitting out for the past six weeks has been a "weird" experience. However, that week slowly turned into two weeks, which turned into four weeks, which turned into questions about whether or not Flacco would be ready to play for the Ravens' regular season opener against the Bengals on September 10.
Back injuries are tricky - we need to see Flacco take an on-field shot or two - but, for now, disaster has been avoided in Charm City. Running back Danny Woodhead (hamstring), wide receiver Breshad Perriman and left tackle Ronnie Stanley all returned to the practice field, per Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun. Mallett struggled both during camp and during preseason games, making the concern regarding Flacco's back even more significant. Mallett threw at least five interceptions in one practice early in training camp, and he finished with a 61.6 passer rating in the preseason.
He missed his first game in 2015 after suffering a season-ending knee injury in Week 11.
The Ravens quarterback also added that he's excited about the upcoming season. But he averaged 6.42 yards per attempt, which ranked 27th in the National Football League, and he finished with 15 interceptions, the second-highest total of his career.
