After suffering a leg injury in Week 15, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was diagnosed with a mild MCL sprain.

Despite the somewhat scary diagnosis, there wasn’t a ton of concern about Flacco’s injury going forward.  Head coach John Harbuagh echoed that sentiment on Friday morning, suggesting he didn’t have any worry over Flacco’s sprain moving forward:

Harbaugh on Flacco: “He looked good. He looks pretty much the same all week. He got through all the practices, took his reps. He did well.”

Flacco, who practiced all week is slated to start the Ravens Week 16 game against the New England Patriots.

It’s expected the quarterback won’t have much issue with the injury, sans some possible limited mobility.

Currently, Flacco and his Ravens are tied for the final AFC playoff spot (though hold a tiebreaker lead over the Miami Dolphins) as they enter their critical Week 16 matchup.

The Ravens will travel to Cincinnati where they take on the Bengals in Week 17 while Miami will finish against the Buffalo Bills (on the road) and the New York Jets.
