Ravens QB Joe Flacco is "definitely not 100 percent"

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Baltimore's starting quarterback suffered a mild MCL sprain in his left knee in week 15.

When the Cincinnati Bengals host the Baltimore Ravens, they'll be playing against a quarterback that isn't healthy -- granted, the only players in week 17 that are completely healthy are probably street free agents and players that haven't played yet this season.

However, it's more than that.

During Baltimore's Monday Night game against the Detroit Lions (week 15), Flacco suffered a mild MCL sprain in his left knee. He played through the game that night, then started Sunday's game against New England with limited mobility and a bulky knee brace.

"He’s definitely not 100 percent on that knee," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Monday. "But to say how much or to what degree is just impossible to say. I think he fought through it, gutted it out. He battled, and that’s what you do this time of year. That’s what makes Joe who he is. He’s a tough, hard-nosed competitor."

During New England's 41-7 win over the Ravens on Sunday, which gave the Bengals the AFC North Champion, Flacco played most of the game, completing 22 of 38 passes for 260 yards with no touchdowns and two picks.
