A promising young defensive lineman will spend his second NFL season in the same place he spent his rookie year — on the sidelines.
Defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore, listed as a second-string defensive end behind starter Chris Canty, has suffered during Sunday’s practice what appears to be a torn Achilles’ tendon. Coach John Harbaugh made the disclosure to reporters earlier in the hour.
Lewis-Moore, a sixth-round pick in 2013, spent all of last year on the Non-Football Injury list, due to a knee injury suffered in college. He played in Thursday night’s preseason opener, notching a tackle and an assist.
The Ravens will now have to decide whether to continue to carry Lewis-Moore on the 90-man roster until the first wave of cuts, or to release him with the “injured” designation and hope no one else claims him on waivers.
