Fear not, fans of the Patriots-Ravens rivalry. Joe Flacco will suit up on Sunday.
An MRI on the Baltimore quarterback’s left knee has revealed a mild MCL sprain, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. Flacco will play on Sunday against New England with a knee brace.
Flacco was hit low by Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy on Monday night but stayed in the game for Baltimore. The sixth-year pro has never missed an NFL start, a streak of 107 games.
Flacco is having a down season statistically after leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl last year. He has 18 touchdowns and 17 interceptions while completing 58.9 percent of his passes for 3,460 yards.
Baltimore is 8-6 going into Sunday’s game. The Ravens could clinch a playoff spot with a win plus a Dolphins loss and a Chargers loss or tie.
