Ross, 31, was signed to a contract close to a month ago to add some depth at cornerback, but it’s likely that this will end his 2014 season.
The Jaguars released Ross just one year into his three-year, $9.75 million. Ross would later catch on with the Giants, but was unfortunately placed on season-ending injured reserve with a back injury in October of last year.
Baltimore also signed Dominique Franks, who has yet to pass his conditioning test with the team.
Franks, 26, was a fifth-round pick of the Falcons back in 2010. He played four years for Atlanta and recorded 25 tackles, three interceptions and nine passes defensed.
