It's just been that kind of year in the Ravens secondary.
On Sunday, in a closer-than-expected 20-12 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, rookie safety Terrence Brooks saw his season come to an end on the opening kickoff. Following the win, coach John Harbaugh announced that Brooks suffered a torn PCL, and perhaps did some damage to his MCL too.
The Ravens defensive backs have had no luck whatsoever in the injury department. The group has been a revolving door at the position.
In addition, cornerback Asa Jackson may have done some damage to his knee, though what he's done has yet to be determined. Jackson defended a pass in the second half, which was called for offensive pass interference, with the young corner falling to the turf and grasping his knee. It wasn't a pleasant sight as it looked like a potentially serious injury.
With those two cornerbacks going down, Rashaan Melvin got his first game action with the Ravens. He didn't disappoint, recording a tackle for loss and a pass breakup that was nearly an interception. But he could be asked to do even more next week, especially if Jackson's injury turns out to be serious. In addition, Antoine Cason, who was inactive Sunday, could end up playing a role quicker than expected, too.
