Joe Flacco Placed on IR; Out for Season

The Denver Broncos have placed starting quarterback on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season. Flacco’s neck injury was a herniated disc in his neck.

It was Flacco’s first season with the team. He threw for 1,822 yards, six touchdowns and five touchdowns on 65.3 percent completion. Flacco formerly won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens. The 34-year-old quarterback has 40,067 passing yards, 218 touchdowns and 141 interceptions on 61.9 percent completion.

The Broncos will start Brandon Allen, a 27-year-old with no starting experience, in Flacco’s place. Allen, in fact, doesn’t have a snap in the regular season in his career. Brett Rypien will be signed from the practice squad to be his backup.
