The Ravens' celebration after beating the St. Louis Rams at home was short lived as minutes after the game, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced Joe Flacco has a season-ending ACL tear and possible MCL tear, too.

As Harbaugh says, the play that ended Flacco's season occurred during the last series of the game, right before Ravens kicker Justin Tucker kicked the game-winning field goal.

Ravens running back Justin Forsett also suffered a broken arm during the first quarter of the game, which may or may not be season-ending, but will certainly cost him at least a few games. Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe also left Sunday’s game in the third quarter with a shoulder injury.

The Ravens may have won their game, but they lost much more on Sunday afternoon.

Flacco will join a list of Ravens players currently on Injured/Reserve that includes Michael Campanaro, Will Davis, Matt Elam, Breshad Perriman, Steve Smith Sr., Terrell Suggs, Lorenzo Taliaferro, and more.
