Torn ACL Ends Urban's Rookie Season

OWINGS MILLS, Maryland — Baltimore Ravens rookie defensive end Brent Urban is done for the season after tearing his right ACL in practice.

The injury occurred during practice Wednesday. Coach John Harbaugh confirmed Thursday that the fourth-round pick from Virginia was lost for the year.

Harbaugh says, "It's a clean tear. That's the positive."

Urban is no stranger to injury. He tore the ACL of his left knee before and had a bad ankle injury during his senior year at Virginia.

This injury occurred when Urban was trying to shake off a block.

Harbaugh says, "His knee just buckled on him."

The 6-foot-6, 298-pound Urban signed a four-year, $2.52 million contract in May that includes a signing bonus in excess of $300,000.
