Ravens’ Gus Edwards, Marcus Peters suffer torn ACL injuries back-to-back during practice

The Baltimore Ravens’ injury nightmare ahead of the 2021 season has only gotten significantly worse on Thursday.

In multiple reports, Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters tore the ACL in practice.

Moments were halted later.

This decision was made after Gus Edwards, running back for NFL Network, tore his ACL during team drills.

The #Ravens cut short practice today after CB Marcus Peters and RB Gus Edwards sustained potentially significant knee injuries on back-to-back plays, per me and @MikeGarafolo. Both players are being tested by the team.

Follow up reports indicated that injuries to the ACL were likely to be serious. Both injuries will end the seasons of Edwards and Peters.

The injuries to Peters & Edwards occur after the Ravens lost JK Dobbins, their running back to a torn anterior cruciate ligament . Additionally, running back Justice Hill also had a season-ending Achilles injury this summer.

Ty’Son Williams (Remaining in the backfield) and Trenton Cannon (Remaining in the depth chart for the Ravens’ backfield) are the other two players on the depth charts. Le’Veon Bell also recently signed to the Ravens practice squad.
