John Harbaugh: Ravens' Aaron Ross suffers torn Achilles

Last year the NFL was overcome with serious injuries early in camp. In 2014 the first major injury of training camp has already happened, with Baltimore Ravens cornerback Aaron Ross suffering an Achilles tendon tear during the team’s conditioning test.

It is a big disappointment for not only Ross, but the Ravens. Ross was signed in June to compete for a reserve role behind starters Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb, and all the planning and expectations they had for the 2014 season took a hit early on.

As far as other options for the Ravens, they also signed veteran Dominique Franks but he hasn’t passed his conditioning test yet.

Ross will miss a lot of this season, most likely all of it. Ross also missed most of last season due to a back injury. It makes you wonder if Ross begins to think about whether or not this is the end of his career as he faces hi 32nd birthday.
