Injuries continue to pile up for the Baltimore Ravens. Moments ago, ESPN insider Jeremy Fowler had an unfortunate update on cornerback Chris Westry’s status.
Fowler is reporting that Westry suffered a torn lateral meniscus. He played 33 snaps on defense in the Ravens’ season opener against the Raiders.
This is a huge blow to Baltimore’s secondary, which is already without Marcus Peters. With so many players out right now, Baltimore general manager Eric DeCosta will look at cornerback options on the open market.
Earlier this week, the Ravens worked out defensive backs Buster Skrine, Grant Haley, Daryl Worley and Winston Rose.
Judging by Fowler’s report, it sounds like Skrine could end up in Baltimore fairly soon. He has compiled 573 total tackles and nine interceptions over the course of his 10-year career.

The Ravens have lost a plethora of impact players over the past two weeks. Before the regular season even started, J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Marcus Peters suffered torn ACLs.
Unfortunately for the Ravens, their offensive line has also taken a major hit this month. Offensive guard Tyre Phillips was carted off the field on Monday night, and left tackle Ronnie Stanley could miss multiple weeks as he undergoes medical testing.
It’ll be tough for Baltimore to overcome all these injuries this season, especially in the AFC North.
