Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco suffered an injury scare on Monday Night Football against the Detroit Lions, when he took a helmet to the lower leg. After the hit, Flacco was clearly frustrated that there was no penalty and appeared to be off of his rhythm, but he said after the game that he is feeling fine.
“It wasn’t really bothering me after the initial hit,” Flacco said, via the team’s official website. “It was more probably scary than anything, just from what I felt. And also trying to get a couple yards out of (the hit). It feels fine. It feels strong.”
Flacco was able to do enough after the hit to keep his team in the game and ultimately lead them on a drive to set up the game-winning 61-yard field goal from kicker Justin Tucker, which allowed the Ravens to stay in control of their own playoff destiny.
The league will review the hit from Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy that wobbled Flacco to determine whether or not the play will be deserving of a fine.
