The Baltimore Ravens have placed former Giants CB Aaron Ross on injured reserve with a torn Achilles tendon. From Rotoworld:
It’s a procedural move after Ross tore his Achilles’ on a conditioning test earlier this week. He’s done for the year and will struggle to attract interest next offseason as a 32-year-old coming off a major injury. Dominique Franks will compete for Baltimore’s No. 5 corner job.
It’s a shame this very talented athlete has gone on to have a very spotty NFL career due to injuries. Ross, at times, showed glimpses of his natural talent but never really lived up the the first round pedigree that made him Jerry Reese’s first pick as GM.
The Giants made Ross the 20th overall pick in the 2007 draft and he appeared to be on his way to being a stalwart for the Giants in his rookie season. He was a member of both the Giants’ recent Super Bowl teams, but most will remember Ross being the player that had two seasons (2009, 2013) stolen from him by hamstring problems.
