Joe Flacco is dressed tonight, the first time he has been active for a game since Oct. 27, 2019, when he made his final start for the Broncos. The Jets play the Broncos tonight.
Flacco had a herniated disc in his neck, ending his 2019 season and necessitating surgery in April. He signed with the Jets in the offseason after the Broncos released him.
He had a full practice for the first time this season Sept. 23.
This marks the first time in 13 seasons that Flacco has entered a season as the backup. Flacco, 35, will serve as Sam Darnold‘s backup.
Flacco’s teams have gone 98-73 in his 171 starts. He has never entered a game as the backup.
