Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey will require foot surgery, likely exacerbating the team’s greatest lingering weakness from the 2022 season.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh revealed the grim news Wednesday, saying that the Pro Bowl defensive back has been dealing with a ‘lingering’ foot issue.
The good news for Baltimore, according to Harbaugh, is that the injury is ‘not going to be a long-term deal.’
Humphrey’s injury follows that of Rock Ya-Sin, Baltimore’s other starting cornerback, who has been sidelined with a knee injury since earlier this month.
Furthermore, Ravens cornerback Trayvon Mullen suffered a season-ending toe injury, Damarion Williams is likely out until October following ankle surgery, and both are Jalyn Armour-Davis and Arthur Maulet have also dealt with injury issues during training camp.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Humphrey has been dealing with a ‘lingering’ foot issue
‘We have guys ready to play, and we’ll see what they can do,’ Harbaugh said.
Humphrey, 27, will not be easy to replace.
The three-time Pro Bowler is one of three players in Ravens history to have at least 10 forced fumbles and 10 interceptions in his career. The other two are Hall of Famers Ed Reed and Ray Lewis.
The silver lining for Baltimore is that they will see two rookie quarterbacks over the season’s first three weeks: Houston’s CJ Stroud in the opener and Indianapolis’ Anthony Richardson two weeks later.
The Ravens yielded 223.2 passing yards per game last season – 26th in the NFL.
