Ravens fourth-round pick Brent Urban tears ACL


Brent Urban’s rookie season is over before it started.

Urban, a defensive lineman chosen by the Ravens in the fourth round of the NFL draft, suffered a torn ACL in practice yesterday. Coach John Harbaugh confirmed the diagnosis today.

The Ravens hoped the 6-foot-7, 295-pound Urban would be able to join their defensive line rotation as a rookie, but now he’ll go on injured reserve.

Fellow rookie defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan, who went down on the same play as Urban, is dealing with back spasms and is not expected to miss much time.

    Just a matter of time before the Pats claim him. Careful what you do w/him Ozzie.

    Very unfortunate, especially for it to happen in his first year. Get well Brent.

    He’s not going to be waived so no concern there. Looked promising so far and he’ll be back next year.

    Sucks when injuries happens, hope he uses his recovery time wisely.

    Feel for the rooks who end up beginning their career with serious injury.

    There are always some big names who suffer torn ACLs in training camp every year. Sadly, this time it hit a rookie. Hopefully he’ll come back next year ready to go.

    That’s a shame…. I’m a UVA fan (yeah i know) and this kid really has a chance to be a great sleeper pick… he has NFL size and talent… shame to see he is going to have to take the long road…

    At least he didn’t fall down the stairs and crack his head open. The Ravens have had some really bad luck recently with promising draft picks who can’t get on the field.

    Yeah waiving a player only happens when a team is in a situation where they look at the player and say he’s just not worth it to protect and keep. I wouldn’t give up on Urban just because of this injury. Give him a chance and see if he can be a good player for the team in the future!

    Whatever happened to Courtney Upshaw.

    Karma for Rice

    Whatever happened to Courtney Upshaw.
    1.Upshaw is an OLB, Urban is a DE
    2. Upshaw doesn’t have the same physique as Urban
    3. Upshaw’s contantly overweight

    He would have been IR’d anyway.
    That DL is too deep for all rookies. Give him another year to rehab and learn the system. Get well Brent.

  16. ravenmadnky says: Jul 31, 2014 2:02 PM

    I was really looking forward to seeing him play. He has all of the tools and perfect size. Best wishes, Brent, on your rehab. See you next year!

  17. pittsburghdamned says: Jul 31, 2014 2:32 PM

    Is there a chance that he faked it just to get off of this team?

    It honestly must be hard to go to work every day for an organization as seedy as this one.

  18. harrisonhits2 says: Jul 31, 2014 2:35 PM

    Feel sorry for the rookie. Pretty crappy to final start living out your biggest dream and have it come to a screeching halt before even the first preseason game.

    Would have been poetic justice if it had happened to Rice.

  19. GenoAtkinswillnotbestopped says: Jul 31, 2014 2:36 PM

    I said it yesterday, I’ll say it again. Instant Karma’s gonna get you…

  20. ravensnation85 says: Jul 31, 2014 2:38 PM

    This kid grew up down the street from me. He’s a big deal out here in Canada since we don’t see a lot of our guys get drafted and he happened to be drafted to my favorite team. He’s got a lot of promise. Get back next year Brent. All of Mississauga is praying for ya.

    remember ravens fans laughing when rg3 tore his acl?

  22. steelcurtainn says: Jul 31, 2014 3:53 PM

    Its going to be a long season for the ravens even without injuries.

  23. jayhit says: Jul 31, 2014 3:58 PM

    Hate to hear this happen to any player on any team hope for a speedy and great recovery!

  24. ericbleedspurple says: Jul 31, 2014 4:27 PM

    That is to AFC North team pages but Steeler fans for my point.

  25. opkaos says: Jul 31, 2014 10:19 PM

    Ravens 7-9
