Ravens cornerback Tavon Young left Thursday's organized team activity with a knee injury, later revealed to be a torn ACL.
"Coming back stronger than ever, GOD got me, thanks for the prayers," Young tweeted Thursday.
Young, who had emerged as the team's top option in the slot entering his second season, intercepted backup quarterback Dustin Vaughan during a drill about an hour into the session and suffered the injury as he ran up the field.
The 23-year-old Upper Marlboro native lay on his back as trainers tended to him on the field before limping off with support on both sides. Young played in all 16 games, making 11 starts, after being selected in the fourth round of the 2016 draft.
"There wasn't much contact at all," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after practice, before the severity of the injury was known.
