Ravens QB Flacco not injured after hit on knee

The SportsXchange

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said Tuesday his knee is fine and he expects to be ready to go Sunday.

Flacco took a hit on his left knee from linebacker DeAndre Levy of the Detroit Lions, but Levy was not penalized. A rule introduced before the 2013 season "The Brady Rule" calls for a flag on any hit to the leg of a quarterback during a pass attempt.

"It was more probably scary than anything, just from what I felt," Flacco said. "And also trying to get a couple yards out of (the hit). It feels fine. It feels strong."

The Ravens were attempting to set up a screen pass with 8:48 remaining in the fourth quarter when offensive guard A.Q. Shipley lunged for Levy.

Flacco appeared tentative to set his feet and plant his left knee on the ensuing possession. He did complete a 27-yard pass to Jacoby Jones to set up Justin Tucker's game-winning 61-yard field goal.
