Kyle Fuller out for 2022 season with torn ACL

USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens have lost another player to a season-ending injury.

Head coach John Harbaugh announced on Monday that cornerback Kyle Fuller tore his ACL during the season-opening victory over the Jets and will miss the rest of 2022.

Fuller started the contest for Baltimore and was helped off the field during the fourth quarter. Fuller recorded three tackles before exiting.

The Ravens signed Fuller in May. He spent last season with the Broncos after seven years with the Bears.

“One of those things. Just a crazy circumstance on the astroturf — got pushed off and just landed the wrong way in the turf and the turf doesn’t usually give as much as grass,” Harbaugh said. “So, that’s what happened.”

Harbaugh added Fuller “was playing good football, too.”

“He just liked everything about what we were doing and he fit in so well, was playing good ball in the game, and really all camp. Such a serious guy, so determined. He’ll come back stronger than ever.”

Fuller has appeared in 113 games with 105 starts. He has 19 career interceptions, leading the league in 2018 with seven.

The Ravens also lost offensive tackle Ja’Wuan James to a torn Achilles tendon on Sunday.

  1. Ravens injuries last season were cataclysmically bad compared to every other team. And now, two more ligament/tendon tears, as well as LT1, RB1 and RB2 STILL not being back. They’d be scary if they were ever healthy.

  2. Today’s stuff is worse than the original cement astroturf. It does not give totally out.Rather slide across the cement.
    Billions made, put in NEW sod every week. Cheaper than losing on 8M a year player plus the cost of a roster spot opening. Or a 50M guaranteed QB.

  3. Again with blaming the turf.

    Sports science has created virtual supermen who are incredibly bigger, faster, and stronger that the best athletes 50 years ago. Unfortunately, the structure of the human body and materials and connections within it are the same ones designed 200,000 years ago for 5′ 6″, 120 pound mammals.

    It’s not the turf. We are just coming up against the limits of what is possible using human beings.

  4. Did he & Jason Verrett place a bet in their rookie year of 2014 on who would start the fewest games while remaining active?

  5. And so it begins: the Ravens RB/DB players annual march to IR. But at least that preseason winning streak is intact, right?
