OWINGS MILLS, Maryland — Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has returned to practice one day after missing workouts with an illness.

Flacco said on Thursday that he had picked up a stomach virus from his son.

He says, "I feel better," adding that he "didn't want to get the whole team sick."

Flacco, who has never missed a start, says he could not recall missing a practice before, either. Flacco is expected to make his 99th straight regular-season start Sunday when the Ravens play at Cleveland.

Flacco completed 21 of 29 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns to lead the 1-1 Ravens to a 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.
