Ravens' Kapron Lewis-Moore out with Achilles injury

The New York Jets weren't the only team to suffer a major injury in Sunday's practice.

The Baltimore Ravens' front seven lost quality depth when defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore went down with a potentially season-ending injury.

Coach John Harbaugh confirmed that Lewis-Moore sustained "a major" injury to his Achilles, which is believed to be torn.

The former Notre Dame star saw snaps with the starters in offseason and training-camp practices. He was expected to play a big role in the defensive line rotation behind Chris Canty and Brandon Williams. Instead, the 2013 sixth-round draft pick will miss a second consecutive season after a torn ACL sidelined him as a rookie.

Lewis-Moore's injury comes less than two weeks after the Ravens lost fourth-round defensive end Brent Urban to a torn ACL of his own. The Ravens were "very high" on Urban, per Peter Schrager of Fox Sports.

Harbaugh will have to count on DeAngelo Tyson and second-round rookie Timmy Jernigan to play more snaps up front this season.
