"You just kind of listen to what the doctors are telling you and how your symptoms are progressing. It seemed like it was pretty good news every time I would see somebody or talk to somebody, so I wasn't too worried about it," Flacco said. "Plus, I didn't really figure I was not going to play at some point. The thing is, it was not something that was completely crippling to the point where if it was the Super Bowl, I couldn't play. So, I don't think I was ever worried about it, in terms of that point. But it was more one of those things where if you don't give it rest, you are going to be dealing with it all year. If you give it the right rest, then you probably won't have to deal with it all year."
