Over the course of the 2021 regular season so far, the Baltimore Ravens have been dealt a tough hand when it comes to injuries. There have been multiple positions that have been hit harder than others, but one that has seen multiple key contributors deal with ailments is at the cornerback position.

With Marcus Peters, Jimmy Smith, Chris Westry and others all dealing with some type of injury (Smith has returned), Baltimore needed many different players to step up. One of those was cornerback Anthony Averett, who has done a phenomenal job thus far playing opposite of Marlon Humphrey.

Ravens defensive coordinator Don Martindale gushed about Averett during Friday’s press conference, saying that he’s “genuinely happy” for the fourth-year cornerback

Averett is currently in a contract year, and is earning himself quite a bit of money with the way he’s played over the first month of the regular season. He’s put in so much work to get to the point he is today, impressing in a much bigger role than he’s ever had.
