The injuries keep coming for the Ravens. Cornerback Chris Westry is expected to miss at least a month after suffering a torn lateral meniscus, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler (and passed along by ESPN’s Jamison Hensley).
Westry, a former undrafted free agent, ended up playing the third-most snaps among Ravens cornerbacks on Sunday, collecting three tackles. The team was already relying on the bottom of their depth chart after losing cornerback Marcus Peters to a season-ending injury, and Westry’s latest injury is only going to make matters worse.
Thanks to their depleted cornerbacks depth, the team is naturally looking for reinforcement at the position. Earlier this week, Hensley tweets that the Ravens worked out four cornerbacks, including Buster Skrine, Daryl Worley, Winston Rose, and Grant Haley. That’s a mix of experience and youth, and the team will presumably add one cornerback to their active roster sooner than later (the organization already added Kevon Seymour to their practice squad).
While this latest injury is certainly frustrating, Ravens fans have probably come to expect it by now. Per Hensley, the Ravens have already placed 15 players on IR this year, including nine players over the past 24 days.

Ravens need to call in an exorcist. Wtf is going on.
This is just a cursed season with a 15th player going onto the IR before the week 2 game. I will be happy if they have a winning season but it looks incredible unlikely.
Hey Ravens, thanks for trading CB Ward to the Patriots before the season. How much is he worth now? LOL
Ward? Never heard of her. Maybe you’re thinking of CB Wade. Good attempt though.
Ok for real, if the Raven’s have to fire a few trainers and Drs.
What would firing doctors do?
