Entering training camp, Ravens starting cornerback Domonique Foxworth was practically the only member of the team’s secondary that wasn’t injured.
Now he’s out for the season.
Multiple reports out of Baltimore indicate Foxworth tore his ACL, apparently during the Ravens’ non-contact “orientation” practice on Thursday. (UPDATE: Ravens coach John Harbaugh quickly confirmed the news.)
This is a devastating blow for a secondary that we already wrote about was in rough shape heading into camp. The next two best cornerbacks on the team — Lardarius Webb and Fabian Washington — are both recovering from their own torn ACLs from last year and are uncertain to be ready for the start of the season. Ed Reed’s status is also up in the air.
G.M. Ozzie Newsome has some major work to do.
