Flacco on back injury recovery: 'There’s no limitations come Sunday'

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was essentially granted an extra week of recovery from a back injury which held him out of the entire preseason, as his defense did much of the heavy lifting during his team's 20-0 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in the season opener.

Speaking before Wednesday's practice, Flacco said he'll be fully ready for Week 2's home game against the Cleveland Browns.

"I’m not going to say I’m 100 percent - but there’s no limitations come Sunday," Flacco said, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.

While letting his defense do most of the damage against mistake-prone Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, Flacco didn't inspire confidence while going 9-for-17 for just 121 yards.

For him, coasting through the week and making it through to Monday morning in good health was more important than padding stats in a blowout.

"I was definitely very happy with how I woke up the next day and on Tuesday and how I feel today standing here," said Flacco. "I felt like I came out of the game great - just getting better and better."
