The Baltimore Ravens are the latest NFL team to lose a prominent player in their secondary after the New York Jets lost cornerback Darrelle Revis to a torn ACL.

During the close victory against the Dallas Cowboys today, franchise cornerback Ladarius Webb went out with an injury to his knee.  While everyone hoped for the best, reports are coming out that Webb has a torn ACL as well.

While an MRI will confirm the diagnosis, the consensus is that it’s what the Ravens are fearing.  If the report is accurate then it will be a significant loss in the secondary of the team.

During the offseason this year, the Ravens signed Webb to a 6-year $50 million extension.  The local product from Nicholls State has blossomed since being selected as a third round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.
