The Baltimore Ravens lost an important member of their secondary on Thursday.
Second-year cornerback Tavon Young suffered a torn ACL in organized team activities, the team announced.
Coming back stronger than ever, GOD got me, thanks for the prayers
Young had a standout rookie season in 2016, starting 11 of 16 games for Baltimore. The fourth-rounder out of Temple recorded two interceptions, one fumble recovery and 50 combined tackles.
Thankfully for Baltimore, if there was one position at which the team could afford to suffer an injury, it was cornerback. The Ravens signed former Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr in the offseason, drafted Marlon Humphrey in the first round and still have lynchpin corner Jimmy Smith under contract for at least two more years.
Baltimore will miss Young in the nickel, but his early-June exit shouldn’t completely derail the Ravens‘ hopes at returning to the postseason after a two-year absence.
Here are some more injury updates we’ve been following on Thursday:
Meredith was the top receiver for the team last season with 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns.
