Baltimore Ravens‘ standout cornerback Marlon Humphrey will miss a portion of the upcoming season due to an injury that requires surgery.
Humphrey, a three-time Pro Bowler and a former first-team All-Pro selection, has been a cornerstone of the Ravens’ defense for several seasons.
The injury, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, which is centered around Humphrey’s foot, has prompted the need for surgery, which is expected to take place imminently.
Rapoport revealed that the medical team hopes to have Humphrey back on the field in just over a month, indicating that he may miss the first couple of games of the season.

The 27-year-old cornerback’s absence will undoubtedly be felt by the Ravens, as Humphrey’s remarkable defensive skills have made him a vital asset to the team’s success.
With 12 interceptions, 71 passes defended, 13 forced fumbles, and two defensive touchdowns to his name, Humphrey’s impact extends beyond his mere presence on the field.
Humphrey’s accolades, including his recent Pro Bowl selections in the 2019, 2020, and 2022 seasons, underscore his value to the Ravens’ defense.
