Breaking News: Foxworth tears ACL, out for season

This morning I warned Ravens fans curb the enthusiasm of the 2010 season.

An hour after that article was published, news broke that starting cornerback Dominique Foxworth tore his ACL and will miss the 2010 season.

The news that Foxworth--a staple to an already battered secondary--will miss the season comes on the very first day of full-squad practices.  An injury of this magnitude creates a great deal of adversity and the Ravens now face an extreme hurdle in finding quality coverage-men.

As it stands, Foxworth will miss the season.  Ed Reed will likely miss at least half of the season.  And Lardarius Webb and Fabian Washington are question marks in coming off of season-ending ACL tears of their own. 

In addition to this, Walt Harris already failed his conditioning test and it's really only a matter of time before he is nicked up with some sort of ailment.

Foxworth, who proved to be a disappointment in 2009, was expected to have a strong comeback season in his second-year in Greg Mattison's defensive scheme. 

It wouldn't be out of the question for GM Ozzie Newsome to make a few roster moves in an effort to patch what was already seen as the biggest glaring hole in an otherwise strong roster.
