Whenever a team's quarterback shows up as a non-participant in practice, it's usually a cause for concern.
As it is with Joe Flacco, it's not that big of a deal for Sunday's game. Flacco is battling an illness, which is why he was unable to practice on Wednesday. The last thing the Ravens want to do is have Flacco show up and spread his germs to other players.
However, there is one player that may not be able to go on Sunday against Cleveland.
The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan has a meniscus injury in his knee, which could cause him to miss some time.
