Wright to have surgery Monday

team surveys QBs


May 22, 2004|By Brent Jones

Ravens quarterback Anthony Wright is scheduled to have surgery on his right shoulder Monday afternoon at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

The surgery will determine whether Wright will be sidelined for the first month of the season or the entire year.

Wright has a partially torn labrum, an injury the team feels he suffered on a blind-side hit in the first half of the Nov. 23 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Although Wright played through the soreness the rest of the year, his arm strength grew progressively worse during the offseason, prompting the Ravens to examine the shoulder earlier this week.

With Wright out, the Ravens have made contact with the agent of quarterback Kerry Collins and are expected to contact the agents of quarterbacks who are expected to be released in June, presumably the Cleveland Browns' Tim Couch and the St. Louis Rams' Kurt Warner. The Ravens also have expressed an interest in former Chicago Bear Kordell Stewart, but the team will not make a decision on a quarterback until Wright's rehabilitation timetable is determined.
