OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) It's time to find out how Joe Flacco will respond to taking a hit on his surgically repaired left knee.
Flacco will start at quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night against the Detroit Lions, his first game action since tearing his ACL and MCL nine months ago in a game against the St. Louis Rams.
The injury ended Flacco's run of 137 straight starts. Following surgery and intensive rehabilitation, he returned to the practice field on the first day of training camp.
