Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco missed practice over the last two days due to a shoulder injury on his throwing shoulder that he suffered last week against the New York Giants and on Wednesday he told the media that there is nothing to worry about. It looks like Flacco is right.

The fact that Flacco is practicing today is a good sign for his status on Sunday against the New York Jets as Friday is usually a good indicator if a player will play or not in two days.
The Ravens are going to need Flacco to be at his best because the Ravens are going to play a game against the Jets that will most likely determine the rest of the Ravens season. A win for the Ravens means that the team improves to a 4-3 record with its AFC North Division title hopes very much alive with a battle against AFC North division leader Pittsburgh Steelers coming in two weeks.
A loss for the Ravens creates an uphill climb with a 3-4 record to go along with a brutal four game stretch remaining to end the regular season against the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals in order.
