The Ravens filled their open practice squad spot by signing cornerback Lou Young to the group.

Young is an undrafted rookie who played college football at Georgia Tech. As a senior with the Yellow Jackets, Young started each of the team's 13 games and totaled 40 tackles and two interceptions. In his four-year career, Young had 134 tackles and four interceptions.

Young replaces cornerback Jamell Fleming on the practice squad. The Ravens had an open spot due to the Kansas City Chiefs signing Fleming to their 53-man roster late last week.

Though he went to Georgia Tech for college, Young is a local product, having attended Washington D.C.'s Good Counsel in high school. He was ranked the No. 13 cornerback prospect by Rivals.com and No. 19 by Scout.com, and was a first-team All-Met selection by The Washington Post.

Young signed with the Denver Broncos after the NFL draft in May but was unable to make their 53-man roster. He totaled five tackles and a sack during the preseason.
