Lamar Jackson's Thursday missed practice was due to a "stomach issue."

It's an extremely minor issue, but it means Robert Griffin III was the only Ravens quarterback practicing Thursday. The Ravens are probably going to be much more leery of throwing Jackson out there if he's only had two practices. It could end up a huge missed opportunity for the No. 32 overall pick. Of course, RGIII will be an immediate derailment threat against the Bengals. Even if RGIII gets the call, Jackson could be called upon. The situation will be updated multiple times over the next 24 hours.

Joe Flacco (hip) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Even after having the bye week to rest his injured hip, Flacco still isn't right. Lamar Jackson was also sidelined on Thursday, though the Ravens are saying he just had a stomach issue. The Ravens haven't tipped their hand yet, but we're guessing either Jackson or Robert Griffin III will be under center Sunday against Cincinnati.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said practice will determine if Ty Montgomery is active this week.

Montgomery was inactive after being acquired from the Packers on deadline day, but he has now had a bye week to learn the system. Even so, Harbaugh wants to see him on the practice field before he makes his decision. "I’m very confident he could go in and play, and play well, and he might," the coach said. "The next three days are going to be really important that way, because these are three specific practices toward actually what we’re going to run in the game, and I want to see what he looks like with that stuff." When he is up to speed, Montgomery should take over as the No. 2 back behind Alex Collins, a role which Javorius Allen rode to some fantasy success earlier this season.

Joe Flacco (hip) didn't practice Wednesday.

Coach John Harbaugh said Flacco doesn't have to practice to play, but this is obviously a bad sign for his status. It's trending like Flacco is going to miss some time with a hip injury that had him on crutches during the bye. The Ravens have been noncommittal on their Week 11 starter if Flacco sits.
Nov 14 - 1:42 PM

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec reports the Ravens have "continually mentioned" Robert Griffin III as a candidate to start this week.

This isn't the first time we've seen Griffin as an option over Lamar Jackson if Joe Flacco (hip) sits. Griffin outplayed Jackson in the preseason, but Jackson has been active as the No. 2 quarterback for his role in Baltimore's dual-QB packages. The expectation has been that Jackson would get the start, but this is a situation worth monitoring.

Ravens signed RB Tyler Ervin to the practice squad.

Ervin was waived from Houston last week. He'll settle for a practice squad job after not drawing any real interest. Ervin gives Baltimore some depth as a kick returner.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Joe Flacco (hip) "does not have to practice to play."

Harbaugh has been adamant Flacco will start if he is healthy enough to play, and that will be the case even if he fails to get in any practice reps this week. "He’s practiced the whole season. He’s practiced for 11 years," Harbaugh said. If Flacco cannot play, the Ravens would likely turn to rookie Lamar Jackson, but it is also possible Robert Griffin III gets the nod.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh would not disclose his Week 11 starting quarterback at Monday's press conference.

Harbaugh said he is "hopeful" Joe Flacco (hip) will be healthy enough to start. "He's getting treatment," said Harbaugh. "We'll see. We'll know more as the week goes on." Flacco was on crutches during Baltimore's Week 10 bye, which is generally not a good sign. The Ravens may try to keep their Week 11 quarterback a secret ahead of a must-win game against Cincinnati.
Nov 12 - 3:57 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Joe Flacco (hip) is more "day to day" than week to week.

Flacco was on crutches during the Ravens' bye week. His status for Week 11 remains in question, but it's far from a lock Flacco misses time after he played through his hip injury against the Steelers. If Flacco is healthy enough to start, it's possible Lamar Jackson will have an expanded role in dual-QB sets.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec suggests Lamar Jackson isn't a lock to start if Joe Flacco (hip) misses time.

The Ravens (4-5) are still in the playoff hunt despite losing three straight games. Jackson has been active over Robert Griffin III for Baltimore's dual-QB packages, but it's possible they could turn to Griffin if Flacco is out next week. The "expectation" is that it will be Jackson, though the Ravens have been noncommittal on their depth chart behind Flacco.
Nov 9 - 6:11 PM

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec reports Joe Flacco's (hip) status for Week 11 against the Bengals is "in question."

The severity of the injury is unclear. Jason La Canfora added that Flacco's currently seeking medical opinions and he "could require surgery" or "prolonged rest." This news coincidently comes during the team's bye week, which would seamlessly work as a transition to instill rookie Lamar Jackson under center. Jackson completed 34-of-68 passes for 408 yards, three touchdowns, and one pick on 88 drop backs during the preseason. His fantasy production ultimately derives from his legs, though, which he used to rush for 23/136/3 in the preseason, too. He'll close the year as a viable QB1 for his rushing floor alone.
Nov 9 - 4:46 PM

Texans waived RB Tyler Ervin.

A fourth-rounder out of San Jose State in 2016, Ervin never cut it in the big leagues. The 5'10/182 back has appeared in 25 games, rushing five times for 15 yards and catching 14 passes for 91 yards. Ervin has mostly been a return man but has never scored a touchdown via any avenue in his career.
Nov 7 - 5:32 PM

Coach John Harbaugh indicated Monday that he will not consider a quarterback change during Baltimore's Week 10 bye.

"Joe (Flacco) has played well," insisted Harbaugh, "so I don’t want to get into all of that. We’re rolling right now with what we got. Of course, at some point in time, [Lamar Jackson] is a quarterback." The Ravens have lost four of their last five games due in large part to a stagnant offense with Flacco at the controls. We still wouldn't bet against Jackson making late-season starts.
Nov 5 - 3:51 PM

Kenneth Dixon (knee, injured reserve) has yet to be cleared to resume practicing because of "issues" beyond the Ravens' control.

It sounds like Dixon is facing another suspension, but that is just reading between the lines. Speaking Monday, coach John Harbaugh made it sound like Dixon was healthy enough to resume practicing. With Ty Montgomery now a Raven, there's not a glaring need for Dixon to return.
Nov 5 - 3:40 PM

Hayden Hurst finished with one catch for 21 yards on two targets Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 9 loss to the Steelers.

This could maybe be construed as a revenge game for Hurst, who spent two years in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization before reigniting his football career at South Carolina. Obviously that narrative, though fascinating, had no bearing on Sunday's outcome. With Baltimore's offense falling apart at the seams, the first-round rookie can't be counted on for fantasy purposes.
