The Baltimore Ravens have sustained an incredible amount of injuries in 2021 preseason training camp. Their injury luck isn’t getting any better with the regular season only a few days away. It’s actually worse.
After Justice Hill was injured in running back, multiple sources reported that Gus Edwards, running back, and Marcus Peters, cornerback suffered serious injuries from back-to-back plays. Due to the unfolding events, practice was halted by the Ravens. Later, it was reported that both were feared to have torn their ACLs. This would have been a devastating blow to the team in many ways.
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.

Losing Peters and Edwards would be the worst case scenario. Baltimore is already very thin as a running back due to other season-ending injuries sustained by Justice Hill and J.K. Dobbins. Peters, who is one of the most respected cornerbacks in the NFL, would be a huge loss. Although it is not clear if the injuries sustained by the Ravens are serious, it seems likely that the Ravens will need to rely on the next man and put together the best roster possible.
