Another cornerback is heading to injured reserve in Baltimore.

It's tough being a Ravens defensive back these days. It just seems the position group has been cursed all season long.

On Monday, coach John Harbaugh confirmed what was feared, that cornerback Asa Jackson suffered damage to his PCL and will miss what's left of the NFL season.


Jackson will hit injured reserve for the second time this year. Earlier this year, a foot injury caused him to be placed on IR-designated to return. He's the latest in a long list of Ravens defensive backs that have been seriously hurt. Jackson wasn't even the only one to sustain a season-ending injury on Sunday during Baltimore's 20-12 win over Jacksonville, as safety Terrence Brooks injured his PCL on the opening kickoff.

The Ravens will undoubtedly search for another cornerback in what's left of free agency. At this point, it wouldn't be a surprise to see an old face that was cut due to poor performance return.
