Ravens lose starting CB Tavon Young to ACL injury suffered during OTAs

BY Dan Graf • June 1, 2017

Tavon Young went from 2016 fourth-round pick to starting cornerback for the Baltimore Ravens last season, but that progress was abruptly halted when he suffered a torn ACL during Thursday’s OTAs.


Young foreshadowed the diagnosis with this tweet before the team revealed the severity of the injury.


He started 11 games and intercepted two passes last season and was expected to play a big role this season even though the team added free agent Brandon Carr and first-round pick Marlon Humphrey alongside starter Jimmy Smith at the position.
