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.

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.
