Ravens expect Joe Flacco back for training camp after tearing ACL, MCL

The Ravens expect quarterback Joe Flacco back for the start of training camp next season after he tore his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments against the St. Louis Rams. "Indications that I've been given is he would be back for the start of training camp and it wouldn't be an issue," coach John Harbaugh. "However, as we well know, those are always things that get determined by how the rehab goes." Flacco tore both ligaments and will have surgery after the swelling goes down. Flacco could be back in six to nine months. He injured his left knee. "Most guys come back from those things pretty well," Harbaugh said. "He's certainly going to have plenty enough athleticism even if there is a little drop-off there. The way technology is, guys bounce back from these things really well. I have every expectation that he'll bounce back 100 percent and be stronger than ever and be ready to roll next year."
