OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) An injury to quarterback Joe Flacco might open the door for Colin Kaepernick to join the Baltimore Ravens.
Flacco missed the first full practice of training camp Thursday because of a back injury and is expected to be out for at least a week. Coach John Harbaugh said the team likely needs to bring in another quarterback and is considering Kaepernick, who opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers on March 3.
Kaepernick drew significant attention for not standing for the traditional playing of the "Star-Spangled Banner" before games. However, Harbaugh called Kaepernick a "great guy" and views him as a viable option in Baltimore.
