Ravens long snapper Morgan Cox making sound recovery from second torn ACL

When the Ravens signed long snapper Morgan Cox to a one-year, $825,000 contract in March, they did so with confidence that he would make a full recovery from a torn right ACL.

Months later, Cox has been practicing without incident as the Ravens head into their three-day mandatory mninicamp that starts Tuesday.

"I'm not the doctor, but he has been out here every day snapping," Ravens special-teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said. "And everything is going well."

This marks the second time that Cox has torn an ACL. Previously, he tore his left ACL five years ago as a rookie against the Cleveland Browns.

Cox got hurt last season against the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 19 at M&T Bank Stadium.

When his two-year, $1.621 million contract expired, the Ravens signed him to a new deal that includes an $80,000 signing bonus and a $745,000 base salary.

A former undrafted free agent from Tennessee, Cox is entering his sixth season as the Ravens' long snapper.
