Kapron Lewis-Moore Suffers Season-Ending Achilles Injury

Posted Aug 10, 2014

The defensive lineman will have to work his way back from a second major injury in the last 18 months.


The Ravens suffered a significant blow during Sunday’s practice when defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore was carted off the field with what appears to be a season-ending Achilles injury, Head Coach John Harbaugh said.

The injury is heartbreaking for Lewis-Moore, who missed all of last season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) that he suffered in the final game of his college career 18 months ago. He returned to the field at full strength this offseason, and was off to an impressive start during training camp.

“I was really disappointed for a guy that had the ACL last year,” Harbaugh said. “It’s going to be tough for him. We’ll rally around him and he’ll be back stronger than ever next year.”

“It’s very unfortunate and very disappointing because the kid has been having a phenomenal camp, and he just came off his knee injury,” outside linebacker Terrell Suggs added. “To see him work all the way back, just to get injured in camp is very unfortunate.”

It was a somber scene at practice when Lewis-Moore went down during 11-on-11 drills with the 49ers. Players from both teams huddled around him and took a knee. 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh was leading the field at the time of Lewis-Moore’s injury, and he kneeled around several players in prayer.

Lewis-Moore was in tears as he was carted into the locker room.

“It’s a horrible feeling. I feel terrible for him,” Suggs said. “I wish him a speedy recovery and he’ll get back at it.”

Lewis-Moore is the second young defensive lineman the Ravens have lost during training camp. Rookie Brent Urban went down with a torn ACL two weeks ago. The injuries to Lewis-Moore and Urban have gouged some of the depth the Ravens had up front at the start of training camp.

“We have tremendous depth around here, but [it’s hard] to lose those two guys with all that potential, and they were doing so well in camp,” Suggs said. “They definitely showed that they would be able to help this team win. To lose them in camp is definitely unfortunate, but we all know injuries are part of the game.”

The other injury during Sunday’s practice was to cornerback Asa Jackson, who left early because of an ankle injury. Jackson limped to the locker room with the assistance of the training staff, and Harbaugh described the injury as “minor.”

“He’ll be out for some number of days, we’ll see,” Harbaugh said. “It’s not a major deal.”
