The Ravens placed linebacker and special teams performer Prescott Burgess on season-ending injured reserve, the team announced today.
Burgess tore an abdominal muscle in Sunday's 30-27 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, according to his agent Tom Kleine. Burgess, who has primarily been playing on special teams, saw action Sunday with the regular defense when middle linebacker Ray Lewis exited the game four four plays in the first quarter with a shoulder stinger.
It was a difficult year for the former Ravens' sixth-round pick who was cut twice and brought back both times.
A corresponding roster move will be announced tomorrow.
They Ravens also made a move with their practice squad, releasing safety Mana Silva and re-signing wide receiver Rodney Bradley.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
