Baltimore Ravens cornerback suffers season-ending knee injury; three others miss training
Baltimore Ravens Second-year cornerback Iman Marshall suffered a major knee injury over the weekend that will require season-ending knee surgery, coach John Harbaugh said.
Harbaugh provided updates on four Ravens who missed Monday’s practice and said Marshall was the only player to be seriously injured. The Ravens believe Marshall tore up his ACL and MCL, according to the coach.
Marshall, a fourth-round pick in 2019, appeared in three games for Baltimore last season and was hoping to earn a bigger role in a talented secondary this season.
“He was working hard and training well and he just fell on his right leg very awkwardly and is going to need major surgery,” Harbaugh said.
Marshal on Monday sent a tweet that said: “I can’t dwell on what has already happened, I just have to keep pushing with God and faith by my side.”
Defensive tackle Brandon Williams and outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson, two returning starters in the top seven, missed practice Monday but are expected to be back on court soon. Harbaugh called their injuries “normal training camp type stuff.”
Wide receiver Chris Moore was also out of practice after breaking a finger last week, Harbaugh said. Moore, one of the top special teams contributors, suffered the same injury last season and isn’t likely to miss the regular season action because of it.
“Chris knows how to handle this,” Harbaugh said. “He’ll be fine, but it will be a few weeks before this bone heals.” “
