Baltimore Ravens Eyeing Colin Kaepernick After Joe Flacco injury

John Harbaugh I Believe Colin Kaepernick Will Be Playing In The NFL This Year Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon ruled out for season

He didn't confirm the one-week timeline, however. "He's an accomplished football player and we always like having good football players around here". "I think there are a lot of layers to it, just from a football standpoint".

He worked out for the team on Thursday and impressed the coaches who offered him a contract. "I'd like to see Colin get back in and at some point get another shot".

"Colin has been training with me five days a week", Josh Hidalgo said to Peter King. I can honestly say that. I wouldn't want that to be here, I don't want him to get another shot here, but yeah, he can come here and have some fun. "So we'll kind of see where it goes", Harbaugh explained. That means he's not throwing at all right now. He also stated that the injury is not a disc issue. When he does, he'll be the unquestioned starter for Baltimore with Ryan Mallett ready to back him up. Mostly, he said his return will hinge on how he personally feels. As Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported earlier this week, Flacco's back injury could keep him out between three and six weeks.

In six National Football League seasons, Kaepernick has passed for 12,271 yards with 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions, adding another 2,300 yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground.

If that's the case, forget Kaepernick, but as Tony Romo can tell you, back injuries can be tricky, and a more substantial stint on the sidelines could send Harbaugh looking for answers. Though he said he hasn't dealt with something like this before, Flacco didn't seem concerned about lingering discomfort during the season. I'm not a doctor and I don't think anybody knows for sure what could happen.

Thunderstorms to arrive later today in Flagstaff region
Partly sunny skies through the rest of the afternoon as high temperatures reach the low 90s with humidity. A chance for rain does return to the forecast Sunday , with a 20 percent chance throughout the day.

"I'm not even thinking about that".

If Flacco is going to miss significant time, however, more soul-searching needs to be done, and breaking down the entire offense and installing a different one to take advantage of a more gifted QB's skills might be the way to go. "It's one of those things where you have to be patient". "I want to be out there more than anybody".

Baltimore tight end Crockett Gillmore went down attempting to catch a pass and immediately grabbed his knee and had to be taken to the training room.

"It's just a little bit of stiffness", he said. He and I have been talking throughout the summer, a number of times.
