Will Davis will miss rest of Baltimore Ravens' season after ACL injury

Published Add your comment

Coming off an overtime defeat to the Cleveland Browns, the last thing the 1-4 Baltimore Ravens needed right now was another injury.

But, as reported by NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, that is exactly what the struggling AFC North franchise have got today.

Injury nightmare

With the likes of Steve Smith (ribs) and Terrell Suggs (Achilles) already on the treatment table, the Ravens have now lost cornerback Will Davis for the rest of the 2015 season.

As Rapoport alludes to, Davis had made a good impression since linking up with Baltimore in September, taking his place as the team's third CB courtesy of some big plays against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Now though, just two games into his time with the Ravens, Davis is done for the year courtesy of the torn ACL suffered during Sunday's matchup against the Browns.

Another man down

Davis' injury is compounded by the fact that Baltimore's starting corner, Lardarius Webb, was forced to miss a large chunk of the Cleveland game with a thigh injury. 

Moreover, with Davis' season over, Baltimore are now just one lengthy injury away from sending their tenth roster member to the season-ending injured reserve list.

The Ravens' 1-4 start cannot be wholly attributed to their bad luck with injury, but it certainly won't help Jim Harbaugh and co. bounce back from here on out.

One plus for fans of the Hard Knocks series, popular former Texans cornerback Charles James is on the Ravens practice squad and could get a chance to impress moving forward.
