Ravens lose two starters to season-ending injuries in Week 1, a year after being most-injured team ever tracked

The team confirmed that both left tackle Ja'Wuan James and cornerback Kyle Fuller are out for the season. 

James tore his left Achilles tendon in the team's season-opening victory over the New York Jets, his second such injury in 16 months. 

The Ravens were the most-injured team in Football Outsiders' adjusted games lost metric's history, dating back to the 2001 season. It's now depressingly more of the same.

Fuller was injured late in the fourth quarter of the Ravens' 24-9 victory over the Jets while attempting to defend Jets receiver Elijah Moore. 

Moore pushed off Fuller before making a grab in the end zone, sending Fuller to the ground and him reaching for his knee. 

 The 30-year-old, who was drafted 14th overall by the Chicago Bears in 2014, signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Ravens this offseason.

James did not play in the 2020 season due to COVID-19, and he missed the entire 2017 season after tearing his left Achilles in May 2021.
