Joe Flacco wears brace on knee at practice

12/18/2013

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was back at practice two days after his injury scare, but he was wearing a brace on his left knee.

On Monday night, Flacco was hit by the helmet of Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy, who had dived at the reigning Super Bowl MVP midway through the fourth quarter of Baltimore's 18-16 win.

Flacco didn't have a noticeable limp when he walked onto the practice field. During the media viewing portion of practice, Flacco only took two snaps in the team's handoff drill. Backup Tyrod Taylor and practice squad player Nick Stephens handled most of the work.

After Monday night's game, Flacco said the hit caused his knee to "cave in" but that his knee felt "fine" and "strong."

Flacco is scheduled to address reporters after practice. The extent of Flacco's participation in practice will be known when the Ravens send out their injury report.
