Ravens apparently lose Kapron Lewis-Moore for the season


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.

  1. I Feel bad for this kid he was coming back from a torn acl in the national championship two years ago so this was really his first opportunity to make a name for himself.

    Really unfortunate to rehab that long to have something like this happen, but I know he’ll just come back even stronger and more determined!

    Good luck and get better soon kapron!

  2. always hate to see young promising low round dfarted players lose year after year to injuries (even Ravens). These are guys that don’t get the big contracts to start with. they work their butts off to get better and earn their money/contracts.

  3. To answer the above commenter, my team before 1996 was the Baltimore Stallions. And the Orioles. I don’t root for teams that aren’t from Baltimore.

  4. This is awful. Chances are this kid’s NFL career is coming to an end and he knows it. That fact is hurting him more than any physical injury.

    But, this is also why there are limits on rookie salaries. Sadly, the kid’s a washout.

    Sooo by your logic if you’re a fan of a team for 18 years, that’s only existed for 18 years you’re fair weather.

    Makes sense to me.


    If you’re 18 years old than it makes sense to me too.

    To all the diehard Baltimore fans that were Colts fans previously or whatever, I would have to take it back and exclude you from my comment, but there is a lot wagon jumper fans that root for the ravens that troll on the site, so there you go.

    The Terps aren’t from Baltimore….

  7. So according to CalvintheGreat82-
    Carolina and Jacksonville too, should have no fans what so ever. Not to mention any new franchise in any other sport.

    And the icing on the cake is that Calvin is excoriating trolling…. Which is exactly what he is doing….. On a Ravens thread… Regarding someone we have lost for the season. Nice.

  8. Canty is the worst D starter on the Ravens, but Kapron wasn’t pushing him.

    It’s sad that the kid is hurt again, but the truth is, he was a nice college player who didn’t really project to the NFL. Not quick enough to be a 4-3 DE and not strong enough to be a 3-4 end.

    Ravens Defensive players who are cut are popular….so he’ll be on another team in short order.

    P. McPhee will move to DE more and the team will benefit in the long run……Know team has more talent at OLB than the Ravens.

  9. Hope this young man sticks and makes it back. To be so close you can taste it, but fall short of playing in the greatest rivalry in the nfl would be cruel for anyone.

  10. The Ravens are the Browns. It was a “team” move that included players. Baltimore isn’t an expansion team, you’re the Browns.

  11. So I guess by that logic the Indianapolis Colts are still the Baltimore Colts?

    We should have gotten an expansion team, but the clever folks in the NFL thought ANOTHER team in Florida would do just so swell.

    Ravens sell out every home game. And what exactly is the Jaguars situation? They are going to get relocated soon. Florida doesn’t even support the teams it does have when they do well….so let’s give them another one.

    Paul Tagliabue told us to build a museum. We told Tagliabue to stuff it where the sun don’t shine and added another couple of super bowl trophies to go in that museum of ours. We’ll be adding more soon.
