BALTIMORE RAVENS INJURY UPDATE
The Ravens announced the following updates Friday afternoon:
The team now has a more definitive timeframe for QB Joe Flacco's return. The 10th-year standout has been re-examined, and his progress from a back issue is good. 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.
G/T Alex Lewis aggravated his shoulder, and it has not responded to treatment. Lewis will have surgery next week and will miss the 2017 season.
Rookie WR/RS Tim White (Arizona State) injured his thumb in last night's game against Washington. Repair will require surgery, and White is expected to miss the season.
