Cornerback Tavon Young tears ACL

When it happened, it seemed like just some minor contact, but after further evaluation, it has been revealed that second-year Ravens cornerback Tavon Young has torn his ACL in an OTA practice.

Young attempted to make an interception in practice and ran into a teammate during a Thursday practice and hit his knee. He was helped off the field, and after the contact, it was initially believed he hit his head, which was why trainers wanted him to stay on the ground. But now his season is almost certainly done.

Young turned into a starter as a rookie. He appeared in all 16 games and played very well in 11 starts. Still, the Ravens choose to load up their depth in a relatively weak secondary. That decision will pay off now. The Ravens signed free agent Brandon Carr, drafted Marlon Humphrey in the first round and so far in OTA’s 2016 sixth round pick Maurice Canady has looked much improved. Along with Jimmy Smith, the Ravens still have veteran Kyle Arrington on their roster and brought Lardarius Webb back.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
