Marcus Peters returns to practice less than a year after injuring his ACL

Replacing Joe Flacco has been near impossible, so it’s encouraging that the team is at least starting to look outside the box.

Marcus Peters tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) less than a year ago and will miss the entire 2021 NFL season as a result. In 2022, the veteran cornerback’s prospects are much brighter as he returned to practice for the first time since his injury on Monday.

The loss of Peters was just one of many injuries that plagued Baltimore in the previous campaign. CBS Sports reminds us that since his 2015 debut, Peters has more interceptions (31) than any other corner. If you factor in the other injuries to Baltimore’s secondary last year, it’s easy to see why they went from having one of the most feared defenses in the league to being one of the easiest to figure out.

Peters’ potential full-time team debut has not yet been announced. The Ravens will play the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night to continue their preseason schedule.
