Carrying a three-game losing streak and a losing record Youth Tony Jefferson Jersey , the Baltimore Ravens now face the burden of uncertainty at the quarterback position.Joe Flacco is nursing a hip injury that could keep him out of Sunday's game against Cincinnati, an AFC North matchup that carries huge ramifications for the sagging Ravens.With Baltimore coming off a bye, Flacco received an additional week of rest and treatment after sustaining the injury on Nov. 4 in the opening minutes of a 23-16 loss to Pittsburgh.Flacco went the distance, completed 23 of 37 passes for 206 yards. His status this week, however, is unclear."He's getting treatment, just like all the guys are getting treatment, and we'll see," coach John Harbaugh said Monday. "I'd say that we'll know more as the week goes on and I'm hopeful all our guys play, including Joe."If Flacco can't play, rookie Lamar Jackson will likely get his first NFL start, although veteran Robert Griffin III is also an option. Griffin gets the nod in NFL experience, but he's been inactive in every game this season while Jackson has been used periodically because of his ability to run."It's up in the air. We're not worried about it," Harbaugh insisted. "We're blessed with a good quarterback room. It's a good thing, that's a positive thing. We've got three guys who can play. It's just like any other position in my mind. You go with the next guy and you roll."The Ravens (4-5) reached their bye week with losses to New Orleans Cheap Ronnie Stanley Jersey , Carolina and Pittsburgh. The skid ruined a decent start and left the team in recovery mode as it seeks to snap a run of three straight seasons without reaching the playoffs.This is the 11th season that Harbaugh and Flacco have been together in Baltimore, and the coach would love to see his quarterback rally the Ravens into the postseason."Any direction we decide to go or we're forced to go, it will be based on the health of Joe. If Joe can play, he'll play," Harbaugh said. "He's rehabbing to play. Joe does not have to practice to play. He's practiced the whole season, he's practiced for 11 years. But he might practice. We just have to see how it goes."The 33-year-old Flacco has played through many an injury throughout his career. He did so against the Steelers. His teammates feel that if he can walk, he will play."Joe is one of the toughest guys I've played with, maybe the toughest guy," guard Marshal Yanda said. "You never see him limping around, you never see him on the field showing any sign of weakness. He's just been a rock for us. I have nothing but respect for the guy."Tackles Ronnie Stanley (ankle) and James Hurst (back) did not play against the Steelers, but both are expected to return Sunday when the Ravens begin a stretch 鈥?with or without Flacco 鈥?that will define their season."We're in the hunt," Harbaugh said. "We'll write the story of the Ravens' 2018 season by how we play in the next seven weeks. That's what our guys are juiced up for. Get the Cincinnati Bengals in as fast as we can, and let's go play the game."John Harbaugh announces Ravens LB Tyus Bowser is dealing with a groin injury The Ravens were without linebacker Tyus Bowser during practice on Sunday, and head coach John Harbaugh announced he was dealing with a groin injury. “Tyus has had a little groin thing. It just doesn’t feel like he’s at 100 percent right now. But he needs to get back out there. The competition is starting to heat up,” Harbaugh said , via the team’s official website.Bowser suffered this groin injury on July 27th as he left practice early with the team’s trainers. He did not play either of Baltimore’s first two preseason games, but he did practice several times before staying on the sidelines for this entire week. Although Bowser is a lock to make the roster, he is battling for snaps with Za’Darius Smith and the emerging Tim Williams, who has caught the eye of Harbaugh.“Tim Williams’ growth from Year One, I would say is remarkable. It’s shown up in the game. It’s been showing up in practice,” Harbaugh stated, via the team’s official website. The Ravens selected Bowser in the second-round of the 2017 NFL Draft, but his rookie season was underwhelming. He did appear in all 16 games, but he only received 161 snaps on defense last year, according to pro-football-reference.The most memorable moment from his rookie year was in Week two against the Cleveland Browns. Bowser recorded an interception and sack in that game. In total, he finished the season with one interception and three sacks. New defensive coordinator Don Martindale is reportedly changing several aspects of Dean Pees’ scheme, which could bode well for Bowser. He seemingly struggled with the complexities of Pees’ scheme, and as a result, he was buried on the depth chart. He did appear to have the edge over fellow 2017 draft pick Tim Williams, who was a healthy scratch for eight games last season. With a crowded outside linebacker room Brent Urban Jersey , Bowser needs to have a great preseason to earn more snaps. He was a talented player at the University of Houston, and he has a high ceiling. Bowser was an intriguing prospect as he is a highly athletic linebacker, who was a former basketball player, but his pass-rush skills were considered to be raw. In college, Bowser totaled 22.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, two interceptions, and 28 tackles for a loss in four seasons. His draft stock skyrocketed after an impressive showing at the 2017 NFL Combine. Bowser was a top performer in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, and three-cone drill, which tests a prospect’s agility and elusiveness. The Ravens have an extended week of practice as they do not play their third preseason game until Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts. It will be worth monitoring when Bowser returns to the field, but until then, Tim Williams will continue to receive more snaps.
