Flacco (hip) is still getting treatment and will start Sunday's game against the Bengals if he is healthy enough to play, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach John Harbaugh essentially shut down rumors about the Ravens using Flacco's hip injury as a convenient excuse to take a look at Lamar Jackson. It appears the 33-year-old truly is dealing with a considerable injury -- one serious enough to warrant the use of crutches over the weekend. There was also a report last week about surgery being an option, but it now seems the Ravens are taking a day-by-day approach with optimism the hip injury will heal on its own. As if the situation weren't tricky enough, Harbaugh said Jackson and Robert Griffin are both candidates to get the Week 11 start if Flacco can't play, per Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.

Flacco was recently spotted in the Baltimore area using crutches while he contends with a hip injury, but the Ravens view him as day-to-day rather than week-to-week heading into their next game Nov. 18 against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rapoport adds that there's a good chance Flacco will be available to play against Cincinnati if he takes part in practice following the team's Week 10 bye, but the Ravens remain unsure if the quarterback will be ready to go when the team resumes practice. Though more clarity on Flacco's outlook should come by the middle of the week, Baltimore will almost certainly prepare rookie Lamar Jackson for a possible starting assignment by getting him more reps with the first-team offense in practice. Even if Flacco gains clearance to play by next weekend, there's a decent chance Jackson takes on an enhanced role on offense if the hip injury further limits Flacco's already below-average mobility.

Flacco is seeking medical opinions for a hip injury, with surgery and prolonged rest considered two of the options for treatment, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The third option is to simply play through the injury, but La Canfora believes that's least likely of the choices. It means Lamar Jackson could be under center after a Week 10 bye when the Ravens host the Bengals on Nov. 18. There were already rumblings about a transition before the hip injury was reported, with Jackson viewed as the franchise quarterback of the future and Baltimore mired in a three-game losing streak. Given his upside as a rushing threat, Jackson should now be owned in all two-QB formats as well as many single-QB leagues.

Coach John Harbaugh suggested Flacco will continue to start at quarterback after a Week 10 bye, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco had been enjoying one of his better seasons prior to his struggles the past two weeks in losses to Carolina and Pittsburgh. The Ravens aren't quite ready to make the switch to Lamar Jackson, but they could reassess if they fall out of the wild-card race in the AFC. A home loss to Cincinnati in Week 11 would put the team in an awfully tough position.

Flacco completed 23 of 37 passes for 209 yards without a touchdown or turnover in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco took a major step back in his home meeting with this AFC North rival after throwing for 363 yards and two touchdowns when these teams met in Pittsburgh in Week 4. The veteran quarterback has come back down to earth after a hot start, posting a 4:4 touchdown to interception ratio over the past five weeks after opening with an 8:2 mark in the first four games. Flacco will hope to recapture that strong early-season form following Baltimore's Week 10 bye.

Flacco completed 22 of 39 passing attempts for 192 passing yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's 36-21 loss to Carolina. He added 14 rushing yards on two carries.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco completed six of his first seven attempts en route an Alex Collins touchdown on the first drive of the day, but completed just half of his attempts after that and finished with his lowest yardage total of the year. Halfway through the season, the Delaware product has completed 187 of 303 passing attempts for 2,067 yards, 11 touchdowns, and four interceptions. He'll try and rebound at home Week 9 against Pittsburgh, against whom he passed for 363 yards and two scores in Week 4.

Flacco completed 23 of 39 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 24-23 loss to the Saints. He added a four-yard run during the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco marched the Ravens down the field in a bid to tie the game during Sunday's closing moments, finding John Brown up the sideline for a 14-yard score with just seconds remaining. A Justin Tucker missed PAT led Baltimore to coming up short. After a pair of so-so performances over the past two weeks, Flacco rebounded on Sunday for his fourth multi-score game of the season. Making it five will be a challenge next Sunday against a top-10 Panthers pass defense currently holding opposing quarterbacks to a 88.7 rating on the season

Flacco completed 29 of 56 passes for 298 yards and an interception while rushing twice for 13 yards in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

While Flacco came up only two passing yards short of reaching 300 for the third time this season, he failed to guide the offense into the end zone in 70 minutes of action. A solid option in two-quarterback leagues due to his yardage output, the veteran signal caller will look to bounce back on the road in Week 6 against the Titans.

Flacco completed 25 of 40 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-14 win over Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco gave the Ravens the lead for good midway through the second quarter, tossing a flare out to Javorius Allen for a 12-yard score. Baltimore has been a red-zone juggernaut through three weeks, a perfect 12 for 12 on touchdowns. Flacco's savvy play has been a big part of that. Despite the flack that he caught in the offseason and the looming presence of Lamar Jackson, the veteran passer is on pace to throw for 4,741 yards this season, which would shatter his career high by over 400 yards. After cutting through a tough Denver defense, he is treated to a divisional showdown with a desperate Steelers team on Sunday night.

Flacco completed 25 of 34 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 47-3 win over Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

Lamar Jackson might be the future in Baltimore, but Flacco looks like he's ready to push it off for a while. Baltimore has struggled with providing Flacco with quality receivers in recent seasons. On Sunday, Flacco connected with three new targets on scores. He has some tough matchups against the Bengals and Broncos coming up, but maybe a new collection of targets is just what Flacco needed to rekindle his career.
