The Baltimore Ravens fear Pro Bowl cornerback Marlon Humphrey suffered a torn pectoral muscle and will be lost for the rest of the season, NFL Network reported Monday.

Humphrey will undergo an MRI and other tests Monday.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after Sunday’s game that he expected Humphrey to be out a while. Harbaugh cited his injury — and a banged-up defensive backfield — as the reason for going for the 2-point conversion with 12 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter rather than the tie. The Ravens lost 20-19 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Humphrey would become the 20th player to be designated for a reserve/injured list for the Ravens this season. Baltimore has already lost cornerback Marcus Peters, who landed on injured reserve in September.

Listed as questionable Sunday due to illness, Humphrey played 97 percent of the team’s defensive snaps in the loss Sunday before leaving with three tackles.

Humphrey, 25, has an interception, 58 tackles — including a forced fumble — and 13 passes defensed on the season.

He has made the Pro Bowl the past two seasons and earned All-Pro honors in 2019. He has played in 73 games (55 starts) for the Ravens since they took him No. 16 overall in the 2017 draft.
