Ravens nickel cornerback Tavon Young suffered a left knee injury in the first quarter of the team’s road game Sunday against the Houston Texans and is doubtful to return.
Young forced an incompletion in coverage and fell to the ground clutching his knee. He walked to the team’s locker room shortly afterward under his own power.
Young missed all of the 2019 season with a neck injury he suffered in training camp. He also missed the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL in his left knee.
Marlon Humphrey, who played extensively in the slot last season, slid inside to Young’s position while Anthony Averett entered the game at outside cornerback opposite Marcus Peters.
Young’s diagnosis continues a stretch of injuries in Week 2 of the NFL season. Stars such as San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa and New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley were among a list of high-profile names who left games with injuries. Both Bosa and Barkley are feared to have suffered torn ACLs.
