The Baltimore Ravens are hoping to see a healthy and motivated Marcus Peters return to the field in 2022 and pick up where he left off prior to his injury.
Peters is hoping for the same as the veteran cornerback continues to rehab a torn ACL that he suffered just prior to the start of the 2021 season. It was the first major injury that Peters had suffered during his NFL career, but he’s hoping to return in short order.
Peters joined the Sway in the Morning crew on Monday to discuss his Ravens future (among other topics) and he detailed that he expects to be back from his ACL injury by June or July.
That timeframe would give Peters enough time to return for training camp which typically begins in the middle of July. That’s certainly encouraging, and it’s the first real indicator that Peters’ rehab period is going according to plan.

Peters was traded to the Ravens in October of 2019 in what would prove to be a steal of a deal for Baltimore. The three-time Pro Bowler was named first-team All-Pro that season after finishing with five interceptions and a league-leading three defensive touchdowns.
The resident ballhawk of the Ravens’ secondary returned in 2020 and put together another excellent season recording four more interceptions in 14 games.
Peters’ absence was felt in a big way this past season as the Ravens finished with the NFL’s 32nd-ranked pass defense, due in large part to injuries to Peters and others.
Anthony Averett was forced to start in place of the injured Peters for most of the year, and while he held his own, he was a clear downgrade from his more accomplished teammate.
With Averett expected to walk in the offseason, the Ravens will likely look to add some more cornerback depth behind their starting duo of Peters and Marlon Humphrey.
The Ravens learned last offseason not to take any rehab period for granted — see the likes of Ronnie Stanley, Nick Boyle, and Derek Wolfe.
But as it stands now, Marcus Peters appears to be on track to return in time for training camp.
