Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey has been the glue to the backend of that defense for the past several years. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on his Twitter account that Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey is undergoing surgery on Wednesday to deal with a foot injury. He is expected to miss the first couple of games of the 2023 regular season.
Baltimore Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey Sidelined With Injury
The first two games that the Baltimore Ravens have on their schedule will be at home against the Houston Texans and on the road against AFC North rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals. Humphrey isn’t a huge loss against Houston, but it will be a massive loss for the Cincinnati game. There is a chance that he could return for the Week 3 game at home against the Indianapolis Colts, but it will be interesting to see how he progresses from the foot surgery.
Last season, Marlon Humphrey played in all 17 games for Baltimore. He picked off three passes, had seven pass deflections, forced one fumble, recovered two fumbles, recorded three sacks, and wracked up 71 total tackles.
Humphrey is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. The Baltimore Ravens’ cornerback group could be a weak link to this defense, with Marlon Humphrey sidelined for the next several weeks.
Baltimore Ravens’ Current Cornerback Group
There are currently three injured cornerbacks in the Baltimore Ravens group. They are Marlon Humphrey, Rock Ya-Sin, and Damarion Williams. The current healthy cornerbacks on Baltimore’s roster are Jalyn Armour-Davis, Daryl Worley, and Kevon Seymour. Safeties Brandon Stephens and Ar’Darius Washington could play cornerback, but this is not ideal for this franchise right now.
The Ravens are depleted badly at the cornerback position. They need to make a trade or sign a cornerback to the roster to improve that room immediately. The Baltimore Ravens will miss Marlon Humphrey for the time being because of how banged up this group.
