Another Ravens cornerback is headed to injured reserve.
“It’s like a five-week injury, so we’ll be ruling him out the rest of the way,” Harbaugh said.
Jackson’s injury will make him the fifth Ravens corner to get placed on injured reserve this season.
Losing Jackson could put the Ravens back on the market for a cornerback with just two games left in the regular season.
“I don’t think you ever feel like you have enough depth to get you through, so we’ll be looking at all of our options,” Harbaugh said. “It’s one thing to hope to have a guy, and it’s another thing to find a guy. We’re just looking at our options right now as we speak, and we’ll have some answers probably over the next two days on that.”
The injury bug has hit the Ravens hard at cornerback, and they have had a revolving door on the back end of the defense to offset all the injuries. The Ravens have shuffled seven cornerbacks on or off the active roster since Nov. 4.
“We don’t have time to worry about it, but it seems that [the cornerbacks have been particularly susceptible to injuries],” Harbaugh said. “It seems that for teams it comes in bunches at certain positions. Certain types of injuries – whether it’s with the team or around the league — it feels that way.”
The Ravens currently have four healthy cornerbacks on the roster:
Cason, a seven-year veteran, could also help the unit after getting signed last week. He was a healthy scratch Sunday, but he started 11 games for the Carolina Panthers earlier this season.
