Ravens safety Terrence Brooks to start season on physically unable to perform list

Due to the timing of his knee injury last year, Ravens safety Terrence Brooks will begin next season on the physically unable to perform list.

Brooks tore his posterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee in December and underwent surgery.

"Terrence was a guy that had shown flashes," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said during Tuesday's State of the Ravens news conference. "It'll be tough for him to be ready to go at the beginning of the season, but he should be able to help us out coming off of PUP."

Brooks was drafted in the third round last year out of Florida State and finished with 19 tackles, two passes defended and a fumble recovery in 11 games.

Though he didn't start a game as a rookie, he displayed some signs of progress. He delivered a concussion-causing hit on Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker. He was also benched after allowing a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints.
