The Ravens’ cornerback depth has taken a hit at the outset of training camp.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced Thursday that ex-Giant Aaron Ross suffered an Achilles tendon tear during the team’s conditioning test, the club’s official Twitter feed said.
The Ravens signed the 31-year-old Ross in June to compete for a reserve role behind starters Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb. However, the Achilles injury seems likely to end Ross’ season.
A first-round pick of the Giants in 2007, Ross has made 52 regular season starts, notching 250 tackles and intercepting 11 passes.
Veteran cornerback Dominique Franks, who’s also competing for a job, has not yet passed his conditioning test, Harbaugh said, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
