Ravens lose Marcus Peters to torn ACL

The Ravens will be without cornerback Marcus Peters for the entire 2021 season.

Tests confirmed that Peters tore his ACL at practice today, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

It’s a big loss for the Ravens, who were counting on Peters being a starter in their secondary and one of their defensive leaders this season. With a $10 million cap hit, Peters is also one of the Ravens’ most expensive players.

Just days before the start of the season, there aren’t a lot of good options available for bringing in a good veteran cornerback. This is a loss that the Ravens will have a hard time recovering from.

  1. Sad for Peters, but really the Ravens season is already a huge success after they set the preseason consecutive wins record so no worries.

  2. Sherman can still play a little. Not sure if he is right for that system. They still have a pretty good secondary without peters. They still have a top 3 corner in the league.

  3. Sherman is not a man coverage corner. He wouldn’t hold up with the blitzing BMore does and relying on their corners to keep up.

    He’s injured and under contract. But I agree Sherman is who they should look at if he’s in a good spot mentally.

    Jimmy Moreland. He’s available and decent.

    Moreland was claimed by the Texans two days ago.

    lol

    And who might that be?

    It’s quite the thing that somehow Baltimore has the best players in the league at almost every position but haven’t won anything in a decade.

  7. PFT writers all picked the Ravens to advance ahead of the Steelers in the postseason…..may want to rethink that

  8. So what is going on in Baltimore? Is it the practice field conditions? Strength and condition program? Coaching drills? Something is up

  9. The Ravens have had, what, 5 different leading rushers in the last 6 seasons? The loss of Edwards and Dobbins, while clearly not good, don’t really matter in that offense. Losing good Peters is a big loss, but there is also lazy/bad attitude Peters too, so it’s not like he’s a beacon of consistency and makes or breaks that defense. What I find laughable is that Ravens fans are already making excuses for Lamar… if he is that incredible, other-worldly QB you’ve been yelling at us for years, why are you concerned? What difference do these players really make when your MVP QB is at the helm?

    Baltimore should definitely offer a 4th or 5th to rent Gilmore for the playoff run.

  11. Looks like the class of that division this season is going to be the Browns. The Steeler’s are too old at QB and the Ravens have too many injuries. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Bengals leap-frog both teams this season.

  12. While you are at it we also have Melvin Gordon and Tim Patrick for trade too. A 2nd for each player

    ACLs are flukes nothing really to do with strength and conditioning but he’ll get the blame.

    ——————————-
    You are right they are flukes, but developing good pliability reduces the odds. And this many ‘flukes’ suggests (not proves) that the Raven’s folks are not doing enough of that.

    Practice field conditions are another thing that can make injuries more likely so I do hope they look at all those things.

  14. With the injuries at running back I guess we will actually find out if it’s the system or the talent in raven land.

  15. “This is a loss that the Ravens will have a hard time recovering from.”

    Seriously? Have you looked at the Ravens depth chart at CB? Jimmy Smith, Tavon Young, Anthony Averett. Peters is a good player who will be missed, but the Ravens can deal with this loss without going outside the organization. Richard Sherman – seriously? Now I will say the Ravens may be regretting that Wade trade to NE, but I think this secondary is going to be just fine
