Baltimore Ravens fear RB Gus Edwards, CB Marcus Peters have torn ACLs

Baltimore Ravens’ injury woes continue as RB Gus Edwards, CB Marcus Peters suffer serious knee injuries

The Baltimore Raves’ injury woes have continued as running back Gus Edwards suffered what is believed to be a potentially season-ending knee injury in Thursday’s practice.

Cornerback Marcus Peters also suffered a serious knee injury in the same practice, prompting coach John Harbaugh to end the session prematurely.

Both players were undergoing testing to determine the extent of the injuries, a person familiar with the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team had not yet made an announcement.

Edwards’ injury continues a rash of losses sustained at the running back position. First, J.K. Dobbins tore his ACL on August 28. Then, Justice Hill tore an Achilles tendon on Sept. 2.

 

Ravens cut practice short, reportedly fear significant injuries for Marcus Peters and Gus Edwards

Whoever put a curse on the Baltimore Ravens running backs can probably stop now.

edwards ravens (ravens gus edwards) : The team reportedly cut practice short Thursday after running back Gus Edwards and cornerback Marcus Peters sustained potentially significant knee injuries on back-to-back plays, according to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

NFL Ravens – Ravens Football

The team has not diagnosed either injury yet, though it reportedly fears both players experienced ACL injuries.
If true, both Edwards and Peters would likely miss the entire 2021 NFL season while rehabbing from those injuries.
Even if the two manage to avoid season-ending injuries, any time lost by Edwards or Peters would have a significant effect on the Ravens. Peters, 28, is considered one of the best corners in the game. He’s made three Pro Bowls, two All-Pro teams and won the Defensive Rookie of the Year award in 2015.

Ravens continue to lose running backs to injury

Edwards, 26, was expected to see a significant increase in playing time after J.K. Dobbins sustained a torn ACL in August. Just days after Dobbins’ injury, Justice Hill, who was expected to back up Edwards, was also lost to a season-ending injury.

Prior to signing Le’Veon Bell to the practice squad Tuesday, the team had just two healthy running backs on the roster, Edwards and Ty’Son Williams.

With Edwards out, Williams and Bell will likely get carries in Week 1. It’s also possible the team signs a free agent — like recently-cut Latavius Murray — before the start of the 2021 season.

Baltimore Ravens fear RB Gus Edwards, CB Marcus Peters have torn ACLs, sources say

marcus peters ravens

The Baltimore Ravens fear they’ve lost running back Gus Edwards (gus edwards fantasy) and cornerback Marcus Peters to season-ending knee injuries on Thursday, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Ravens believe Edwards and Peters tore their ACLs during Thursday’s practice, sources tell Schefter. Both players are undergoing testing to confirm the initial diagnosis.

This continues a horrid run of injuries for Baltimore and delivers a major blow to the Ravens’ Super Bowl aspirations.
Edwards becomes the third running back to suffer a season-ending injury in a span of 12 days. J.K. Dobbins tore his ACL in the preseason finale on Aug. 28, and Justice Hill hurt his Achilles on Sept. 9.

Ty’Son Williams, a practice player from a year ago who doesn’t have an NFL carry, becomes the Ravens’ lead back. The other two running backs on the roster — Trenton Cannon and Le’Veon Bell (practice squad) — only started practicing with the Ravens on Wednesday.

The loss of Peters would represent the most significant injury to the defense this year. The Ravens have depth at cornerback, but it will be difficult to replace Peters’ playmaking ability. His 31 interceptions lead the NFL since he entered the league in 2015.

Anthony Averett, a fourth-round pick in 2018, would be a candidate to replace Peters and start opposite Marlon Humphrey.
