According to the Baltimore Sun, Ravens safety Bernard Pollard played the majority of the 2012 season with cracked ribs. Pollard first got hurt against the Philadelphia Eagles in the second game, aggravating the injury against the Washington Redskins and missing the final three games of the regular season. Pollard hadn’t previously disclosed the extent of his injury, but acknowledged what he had played through since the season is over and opponents won’t be targeting his ailment “It’s tough dealing with pain,” said Pollard, who led the Ravens with 98 tackles as well as recording two sacks and a forced fumble. “For us as football players, we know we’re going to go through it. At the same time, that’s the name of the game. Six of them, yep. Hey, it’s up to us to go out there and play and we did.” The amazing thing is that I don’t think anyone could tell Pollard was playing injured throughout most of the season. I wonder if he was listed on the Ravens’ weekly injury report. If not that

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that not only are the Ravens likely to franchise QB Joe Flacco in the next few weeks, but they may have to use the exclusive franchise tag to ensure that he will be back for at least another season.
