    Joe Flacco suffered a concussion after taking a brutal hit from Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso late in the second quarter of the Ravens' 40-0 win Thursday night.

    Flacco had clearly given himself up by sliding at the end of a 9-yard scramble when Alonso lowered his shoulder and delivered a vicious blow that immediately knocked the helmet off of the Baltimore Ravens quarterback. Gaylord Perry Authentic Jersey Alonso was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play, and Flacco didn't return to the game after leaving for the locker room to undergo testing.

    In addition to the concussion, Flacco suffered a cut to his ear, which required stitches, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after the game.
    NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the league will review the play but it is unclear whether it's for a possible suspension.

    "It was bang, bang," George Kontos Authentic Jersey Alonso said. "It got to a point where I thought maybe if he slid a second sooner, I was anticipating him sliding and I was going to not hit him, but I think it was like, you know, a second late, which is why I hit him."

    Alonso added there wasn't anything he could have done to avoid hitting Flacco like he did.

    "No. No way," Alonso said when asked if he could have avoided contact or not put a shoulder on Flacco. "That's the target, you know, when a guy slides, his target is very small. I just think it was a second late, which is why I hit him, to be honest with you."

    Harbaugh wouldn't discuss whether he believed Alonso should have been ejected.

    "I'm not commenting on that," Harbaugh said. "It was penalized correctly, I would say."

    Coming on in relief of Flacco, Gorkys Hernandez Authentic Jersey backup quarterback Ryan Mallett found tight end Ben Watson for a 2-yard touchdown, giving Baltimore a 20-0 lead at halftime.

    Although Alonso was penalized 15 yards, he was not ejected for the infraction. After having his own helmet knocked off by Ravens center Ryan Jensen in retaliation, Alonso found himself face-to-face in a verbal confrontation with an irate Harbaugh.
    The Buffalo Bills, who still own the wide receiver's playing rights, have given Boldin's agent permission to talk to other NFL teams to gauge any potential interest in trading for the 37-year-old, a source Hunter Pence Authentic Jersey with direct knowledge of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The Bills aren't interested in releasing Boldin's rights -- they are seeking to trade him if a team wants him, Rapoport reported.

    Boldin retired in August just weeks after signing a one-year deal with the Bills. He appeared in two preseason games with the Bills before announcing his retirement in a renewed effort to focus on social issues in the wake of racial violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    One of the greatest possession receivers in NFL history, Boldin ranks 14th all-time in receiving yards with 13,779 on 1,076 receptions with 82 touchdowns. Boldin was productive in each of his stints with the Cardinals, Ravens, 49ers and Lions. Since 2008, he earned 3,495 yards after the catch, per Pro Football Focus. Only Wes Welker and Larry Fitzgerald have more in that span.

    Last year in Detroit, Boldin was Matthew Stafford's go-to red-zone target (8 touchdowns) and also frequently looked his direction on third down.

    The big question now is whether there's still a market for him. He didn't sign with Buffalo until after training camp started, so it'll be interesting to see if a team is willing to take a chance with Boldin, even if means giving up some sort of compensation for him.
