Joe Flacco injury: Ravens lose quarterback to torn ACL vs. Rams

The Ravens lose their signal caller who has never missed a game in his career.

The Ravens lost the soul of the offense just a few weeks ago when Steve Smith, Sr. went down.

Now they've lost the heart of the entire team, their quarterback.

It has just been confirmed that quarterback Joe Flacco tore his ACL in the final minutes of today's game. Flacco was rolled up underneath by his own guy, and could barely walk off the field during the final plays of the game.

The Ravens' backup to Flacco is Matt Schaub, the tenured veteran.

UPDATE: Early indications are that Flacco tore both his ACL and MCL. It is far too early to discuss his future, but a return to begin 2016 isn't impossible at this point.
