Prior to the 2015 season Joe Flacco never missed a game in his entire career. During week 11 Flacco tore his ACL abruptly ending the Ravens season and their playoff hopes along with it. As Flacco gears up for the 2016 season he knows he must make a successful comeback if the Ravens have any chance of being postseason bound.
“It’s funny, when I’m out there running around and cutting on it and doing those things, there is no tentativeness, because I didn’t hurt it that way,” Flacco said via the team’s official website. “I hurt it getting hit.
“I’m curious. It will probably be a little different the first time I take a couple drop-backs and feel a little bit of guys coming in my face. I’ll have to step and throw still.”
Flacco has made it known that he hopes to be ready for training camp in July, 8 months after the injury. The 31 year old signal caller doesn’t believe these thoughts will linger however.
“I don’t expect to have those kinds of thoughts linger in my head,” Flacco said. “But you never know until you get out there and do it again.”
