The Baltimore Ravens were dealt perhaps their most serious injury blow of what has been a downright miserable season when it was revealed that star cornerback Marlon Humphrey would miss the rest of the season.
Humphrey suffered a torn pectoral muscle late in the Ravens’ Week 13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The initial word from head coach John Harbaugh was that he could be out “a while,” and the initial confirmation came the next day.
