Joe Flacco recovering very well from his torn ACL and MCL according to Head Coach John Harbaugh

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco tore his ACL and MCL in week 11 of last season and missed the final six games of the regular season as well. At the time, Ravens fans and possibly the Ravens organization as well, were worried that Flacco might not have enough time to play the first quarter of the 2016 regular season.

But according to Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, Flacco is recovering about as well as someone in his situation could as Harbaugh discussed via BaltimoreRavens.com.

"I've heard he's attacking his knee as well or better than anybody they've ever seen," Harbaugh noted.

If Flacco is able to play in week one of this upcoming season, that will feel like the first good news the Ravens have had in over a year. Flacco wasn't walking with crutches when he was introduced during Super Bowl ceremonies at Super Bowl 50 which was clearly a good sign.

If all goes well with Flacco, the question later on will be if the Ravens try him out during preseason games. I personally wouldn't risk it.
