As things stand, the Baltimore Ravens only have a legitimate cornerback for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This means that five of the six cornerbacks listed in the Ravens roster are missing. “The last man standing” is currently Marlon Humphrey.
While Jimmy Smith will definitely be out with a shoulder and rib injury, Marcus Peters is another star cornerback that is currently in question. Peters had to stop training for the whole week due to a calf injury. In addition to Marcus Peters, the appearances of Anthony Averett (ankle), Tramon Williams (thigh) and Davontae Harris (ankle) are currently questionable. Only Tramon Williams was able to train fully on Friday.
When Raven’s head coach John Harbaugh was asked about the availability of his cornerbacks in the US media, he said, “It’s only Friday. We’ll see how it looks when the time comes. “
In addition to the hope of a return of the currently questionable cornerbacks, the Ravens coaching team could fall back on Pierre Desir from the Practice Squad.
The Baltimore Ravens currently have a record of 8-5 and must try to win every game to move into the playoffs in a strong AFC North.
But not only the Ravens are currently struggling with filling the cornerback position. Their upcoming opponents, the Jacksonville Jaguars, are also concerned about their cornerbacks.
With Sidney Jones, the Jaguars are missing a starting CB due to an Achilles tendon injury. The return of Tre Herndon is also questionable. Herndon was last on the reserve / Covid-19 list and it is currently still questionable whether he will be released for the trip to Baltimore. With DJ Hayden and CJ Henderson, two other cornerbacks are also on the IR list and can no longer be used this season.
