The Ravens’ secondary suffered another blow, as cornerback Anthony Averett was carted off the field after suffering a chest injury during the first quarter of Sunday’s AFC North matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was ruled out at halftime.

Averett lay on the ground in serious pain after trying to tackle Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah on a 16-yard reception with 4:41 remaining in the first quarter. He was attended to by trainers before getting up under his own and carted into the locker room.

Cornerback Daryl Worley, who was signed to the practice squad on Tuesday, replaced Averett.

The Ravens’ secondary has been decimated by injuries, as cornerbacks Marcus Peters (torn ACL) and Marlon Humphrey (torn pectoral) as well as safety DeShon Elliott (torn pectoral and bicep) are out for the season. Averett was Peters’ replacement after the All-Pro cornerback injured his knee before the start of the season.

Averett has started 14 games, recording 53 tackles and three interceptions.
