OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has a right shoulder injury but expects to play Sunday against the New York Jets.

Flacco did not practice Wednesday. Coach John Harbaugh says the quarterback could face the Jets (1-5) even if he doesn’t practice this week.

Harbaugh said, “I believe he’s got a legitimate chance to play.”

The injury occurred last Sunday during a 27-23 loss to the New York Giants.

Flacco called it “soreness” and “nothing to worry about.” He added, “A little bit of rest right now is probably the best thing.”

Baltimore (3-3) will be seeking to end a three-game skid. If Flacco can’t play, backup Ryan Mallett will start.

Flacco started in 137 consecutive games before torn knee ligaments forced him to miss the final six games of the 2015 season.
