The Baltimore Ravens’ nightmare season took another turn for the worse Sunday.
The result on the field was positive, as Justin Tucker’s last-second field goal lifted Baltimore to a 16-13 win over the St. Louis Rams. After the victory, however, head coach John Harbaugh announced quarterback Joe Flacco tore “at least” his ACL and possibly his MCL and will miss the rest of the season.
Flacco suffered the injury late in the Ravens’ final drive but stayed in the game to move his team into field goal position and help them secure the win.
Baltimore is just 3-7 despite the win and also lost running back Justin Forsett, who broke his arm in the first quarter Sunday and didn’t return. The Ravens already are without wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. and linebacker Terrell Suggs for the rest of the season.
Matt Schaub is the only other quarterback on Baltimore’s depth chart and is in line to start next Monday night’s game against the Cleveland Browns as of now.
