The Baltimore Ravens announced Friday that quarterback Joe Flacco will not play in any of the team’s remaining three preseason games as he continues to recover from a back injury. 

The 10th-year standout has been re-examined, and his progress from a back issue is good,” the statement noted. “He will return to practice in the preseason, but he is not expected to play in these games. The plan is for Flacco to be the starting quarterback against Cincinnati in the regular season opener on Sept. 10.”
