Fabian Washington: The cornerback will make his 2010 debut in tonight's game. Ravens' coach John Harbaugh has said that Washington will be on the field for at least one quarter of the game. Washington's last game was against the Indianapolis Colts on November 22, 2009. He tore his ACL during that game and spent the offseason rehabbing the injury.
Washington is upbeat about how his rehab is progressing, "You just got to go out and play, and I've been doing everything you possibly can do on it. I've been falling, diving, everything. So I feel pretty confident about it."
Jim Zorn: Ravens Quarterback coach Jim Zorn will make his return to D.C. after being fired by the Redskins. Zorn was the head coach for Washington in 2008 and 2009.
Kickers: Ravens' kicker Billy Cundiff and Shayne Graham continue their battle for the starting job. Opinion seems to be split on these players and neither is a clear front runner for the job. A good showing in a game setting can give one of these players a clear upper hand.
Terrence Cody: Everyone is familiar with the struggles "Chesseburger" had with his conditioning test. Cody had a good showing in the Panthers game last week. The question now is, can he take another step forward and put the questions of his weight and conditioning behind him?
A good showing in tonight's game and Cody takes a huge leap forward. If Cody has an average or worse game, doubts may again begin to creep in.
Offensive Line: The offensive line has been depleted by injuries and that trend continues. Joe Flacco was sacked six times against the Panthers. Everyone understands that the line that is on the field is not the one that will start the season, but back up jobs can be won and lost quickly in the preseason games. The second and third-string players need to have a much better game against the Redskins.
