OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Joe Flacco played the unaccustomed role of spectator at the Baltimore Ravens minicamp this week, watching from afar while Ryan Mallett ran the first-team offense.
Flacco played in 122 straight games - the fifth-longest streak for a quarterback in NFL history - before tearing the ACL and MCL in his left knee during the fourth quarter of a win over St. Louis. He was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 24 and underwent surgery soon after that.
He is now in recovery mode, with the hope of being ready for the start of training camp in late July.
