WESTMINSTER, Md. — Baltimore Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, a major blow for a defense already missing cornerbacks Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb.
"We had an orientation practice and it’s a slow-pace, short practice and we lost Domonique Foxworth," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Domonique tore his ACL. He wasn’t touched. There was no contact. He just planted the wrong way and the thing popped.
"We’re disappointed about that. I’m most disappointed for Domonique. I can’t wait to see who steps up to fill that spot. We’re going to have a great defense."
Webb and Washington remain out due to their own surgically-repaired knee ligaments that were torn last season. Plus, cornerback Cary Williams is suspended for the first two games for violating the NFL personal conduct policy.
The Ravens have signed Walt Harris and Travis Fisher this offseason and also have Chris Carr. Carr and Fisher lined up as the starters today.
It’s possible that general manager Ozzie Newsome will look to sign another cornerback, too.
"The one thing with the Ravens, as you all know, Ozzie’s always going to get guys here," defensive coordinator Greg Mattison said. "He’s going to always give you enough bullets. We are very confident in that and we’ll do whatever we have to do to get that defense ready."
