Marlon Humphrey injury update will worry Ravens fans

Baltimore Ravens, Marlon Humphrey

The Baltimore Ravens finished with a dramatic one-point loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13, but they may have also come away from the contest with a major injury concern.

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey is “suspected” to miss the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury.

Following the game, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh noted that the reasoning behind the decision to go for a 2-point conversion attempt after quarterback Lamar Jackson’s late touchdown pass to wide receiver Sammy Watkins was because of an injury suffered by Humphrey.

Harbaugh did not specify as to Humphrey’s injury but rather mentioned that the veteran defensive back is set for an MRI and he could be out “a while.”

Humphrey was shown grabbing his arm/pec area after attempting to tackle Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson on his late 5-yard receiving touchdown, which turned out to be the game-winner for Pittsburgh.

More so, Humphrey was also reportedly shown holding his right arm/wrist following the game.

Humphrey came into Week 13 dealing with an illness, as he did not feature in Baltimore’s scheduled practices on both Thursday and Friday. Still, he received the green light to play in this game, although it may have been his last one for the season.

The Ravens have dealt with a multitude of injuries so far this season. They currently have eight players on injured reserve, while 13 others were either listed as out or questionable for their road game against the Steelers. Overall, Humphrey is now set to be the ninth player on the team to be ruled out for the year due to an injury.

For now, an AFC North rematch awaits the Ravens as they will face the Cleveland Browns in Week 14.
