The Baltimore Ravens' season has turned into a disaster

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett Leaves Game with Broken Arm


The Baltimore Ravens entered the season as one of a handful of teams assumed to have a grip on a playoff spot.

Instead, a rash of injuries have turned the Ravens season in the opposite direction.

At 2-7, the Ravens are well out of a playoff spot, but any hopes of turning it around and at least competing for a wild card have been shot.

On Sunday, starting running back Justin Forsett suffered a gruesome broken arm that took him out of the game, and will likely have him out of most of the rest of the season, if not all of it. Forsett is the Ravens top running back, and while he only has two touchdowns on the season, he had eight last year for the Ravens.

This is the second devastating injury to an offensive player for the Ravens this month. Wide receiver Steve Smith tore his Achilles in Week 9, ending his season and perhaps his career, as Smith has said he was going to retire after this season. It was an unfortunate ending, if so, because Smith was on pace for another 1,000-yard receiving season.

The Ravens also lost first-round pick Breshad Perriman, who got hurt in training camp and was ruled out for the season. On a shallow offensive team, Perriman's explosive would have been a nice weapon for Joe Flacco.

The Ravens were hurt defensively in Week 1 when linebacker Terrell Suggs tore his Achilles. Considered the centerpiece of the Ravens defense, the Ravens were just 26th in defensive DVOA going into Week 11, according to Football Outsiders.

It's been a brutal year:



Forsett's fractured arm means Ravens have lost starting RB, Steve Smith, Terrell Suggs, Breshad Perriman and Jeremy Zuttah for the season.

While injuries happen to every team, it's rare to see a team lose so many key starters in such rapid succession.

The Ravens may not have been a Super Bowl contender, but if healthy, they would have made the race for the AFC North that much more interesting. Instead, it's turned into a lost year.
