Ravens QB Joe Flacco on ACL rehab: I’m going to be stronger than ever

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco expects to be ready for the start of the 2016 season after tearing his ACL and MCL in November.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco says the rehabilitation of the torn ACL and MCL in his left knee is going well, and that he expects to be ready for the start of the 2016 season, according toThe Baltimore Sun

“I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I feel like it’s going really well,” Flacco said of his recovery. “I’m coming in here every day, doing what they tell me to do. I think that’s really all I can do at this point.

“I don’t have any real outlook on what the future’s going to bring, but I know that I’m attacking it 100% every day and doing the best I can. That’s going to be good enough. I’m going to be back out there, and I’m going to be healthier than ever, stronger than ever.”

Flacco sustained the torn ligaments in November during a Week 11 win over the Rams, knocking him out for the season. He had previously never missed a game in his eight-year NFL career.

Flacco signed a three-year, $66.4 million contract extension with the Ravens on Wednesday, making him the highest-paid player in the NFL.
