How will the Ravens cope without cornerback Domonique Foxworth, who will miss the season with a torn ACL in his right knee?

The weakest position on the Baltimore Ravens' roster just got even weaker with the loss of Foxworth. He isn't a real difference-maker, but Foxworth is a solid all-around player. His absence is a major problem when considering the state of the Ravens' cornerback position and the secondary as a whole. Star safety Ed Reed is scheduled to begin the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list as he recovers from hip surgery.
