Steve Smith (back) will miss at least one game, Michael Campanaro (back) is done for the year, and Breshad Perriman (knee) is out indefinitely. Flacco is thus left with Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown, Darren Waller and Chris Givens, the last of whom was recently acquired for a seventh-round draft pick. The Ravens might consider making a bigger splash, but their cap situation only allows for so much, and there aren't many teams that can spare a starting-caliber wide receiver. Flacco will have a decimated supporting cast for a Week 5 matchup with a Cleveland team that can't stop the run. Unless the Ravens fall behind by multiple scores, Flacco will likely take a backseat to the running game.
New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher confirmed guard Jose Calderon (Achilles) will start at point guard in Wednesday's preseason opener against Brazilian team Bauru Basket, ESPN New York reports.
The Achilles' injury spelled an early end to Calderon's 2014-15 season, but with a full offseason to recover, he'll be back in action to direct the Knicks offense. Team president Phil Jackson said earlier in the summer that he anticipates Calderon will see minutes in the upper-20s this season, with second-year man Langston Galloway and rookie Jerian Grant occasionally relieving him at point guard. Calderon averaged 9.1 points and 4.7 assists over 42 games with the Knicks last season.
