Baltimore Ravens cornerback Aaron Ross will have to sit out the 2014 season with a torn Achilles tendon.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Aaron Ross suffered a torn Achilles, and he will miss the upcoming season to have surgery on his Achilles tendon.
Ross began his career with the New York Giants in 2007 after being selected with the 20th overall pick, and he helped them win a Super Bowl. The former Texas Longhorn notched three interceptions in each of his first two seasons before suffering an injured hamstring that kept him out for almost the whole 2009 season.
However, Ross bounced back in 2011 after capitalizing on a season-ending injury to fellow cornerback Terrell Thomas.
Ross earned a starting position in Thomas’ place and grabbed a career-high four interceptions while helping lead the Giants to their second Super Bowl victory in five years.
The cornerback was not expected to start in Baltimore since they already have Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith, but he would have provided quality depth and veteran experience.
Ross returned to the Giants in 2013 but was placed on injured reserve early in the season with a back injury. He will be hard-pressed to find a new team since he is broken down and at age 31.
