OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens suffered their first major injury of the offseason, and it continued a bad trend at cornerback.
Undrafted rookie cornerback Julian Wilson broke his lower leg on the first day of rookie minicamp, ending his season. No position was hit harder by injuries last season than cornerback. The Ravens placed five cornerbacks on injured reserve last year, including two of their top three (Jimmy Smith and Asa Jackson).
Wilson's injury occurred during a closed practice to the media. According to coach John Harbaugh, Wilson fell awkwardly while covering a receiver.
“He’ll move on from that," Harbaugh said. "He’ll still be with us and be part of us. But he’s got a lot of potential as a player. I was disappointed in that sense."
