OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Off to the worst start in franchise history and carrying an expansive injury list, the last-place Baltimore Ravens have reached a pivotal point in a stunningly disappointing season.
The Ravens are 1-4 for the first time and play the next two games on the road. If Baltimore is to bounce back, it will have to do so short-handed.
Cornerback Will Davis tore his ACL in a loss to Cleveland on Sunday and is lost for the season. Running back Justin Forsett has a sprained right ankle, linebacker Elvis Dumervil is nursing a groin injury and cornerback Lardarius Webb missed the entire second half with a thigh injury.
In spite of it all, coach John Harbaugh says his players will meet the challenge that lies ahead.
Harbaugh says, ''I believe we're up to the task.''
