Ravens Cornerback Out For The Season

The Baltimore Ravens weren't far off a full blown injury crisis ahead of Week 1, with Ronnie Stanley, J.K. Dobbins and Marcus Peters all ruled out, but after Ju'Wuan James tore his achilles and was ruled out for the season, star cornerback Kyle Fuller is now set to join him. The earlier injuries are not that serious, meaning Baltimore will get plenty of playing time from those names, but unfortunately, today, head coach John Harbaugh announced that Fuller will be out for the remainder of the 2022/23 NFL season. 

The injury happened in garbage time in the 24-3 Week 1 victory over the New York Jets, when Elijah Moore pushed off Fuller in an attempt to gain some space, and unfortunately, Fuller just landed awkwardly, and immediately, the fans knew something was wrong. There was optimism that it would only be a minor injury, but unfortunately, it's worst case scenario for Baltimore, who are now missing their top two cornerbacks ahead of a Week 2 clash with the Miami Dolphins.

The Ravens are certainly a talented team, and with Lamar Jackson leading the way, will definitely be in the hunt for a Wild Card spot at the end of the year, but missing a player like Fuller on the defensive side of the ball is going to hurt this teams chances of a deep run through the playoffs.
