Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco Suffers Season-Ending Knee Injury

The Baltimore Ravens came into Week 11 with only two wins on the 2015 NFL season with no hope of a playoff push in the AFC. Unfortunately, it went from bad to worse for the Ravens against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday with John Harbaugh’s squad coming out with the win, but losing so much more.

According to ESPN, veteran quarterback Joe Flacco suffered a knee injury against the Rams that’ll keep him out for the rest of the season.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco suffered a season-ending knee injury on the winning drive of a 16-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams.

Not only did the Ravens lose their leader under center on Sunday but they also lost arguably their best offensive weapon in running back Justin Forsett. The Ravens’ lead back will also miss the rest of the season after suffering a broken arm in the win over the Rams via ESPN.

Ravens running back Justin Forsett broke his right arm in the first quarter of Baltimore’s 16-13 victory against the Rams, becoming the team’s latest offensive player to suffer a season-ending injury.

It has been one thing after another for the Ravens this season. Flacco and Forsett aren’t the only costly losses Baltimore has suffered this year with both Terrell Suggs and Steve Smith Sr. also going down with season-ending injuries earlier in the season.

With a 3-7 record, the Ravens will be forced to go with backup quarterback Matt Schaub for the rest of the way. Schaub has bounced around the league ever since parting ways with the Houston Texans a few years ago, but he’s a formidable backup that should help shoulder the load in the final month and half of the season.
