The Baltimore Ravens removed Lardarius Webb from the physically unable to perform list on Monday. The team is hoping that the cornerback will be ready to play against the New York Jets when the Ravens open the season on September 13th.
Webb tore the ACL in his right knee in a game against the Chicago Bears last season on December 20th.
Coach John Harbaugh said that the team would take the same tack with Webb as they did with the Fabian Washington, who recently returned from an ACL injury.
Washington had no contact for one week after returning to the practice field. His first game back was three weeks after he was cleared to work with the team.
The Ravens opener is a little less than three weeks away. If Webb looks healthy and able, it would not be a surprise to see him play against the Jets.
In addition to his cornerback duties, Webb played special teams last year. It was while covering a punt that he injured his leg. Webb stated, "I haven't been rehabbing to get back to play one thing. I've been rehabbing to get back to my full self. And my full self does everything. I want to do everything I can possibly do when I get back to 100 percent."
In his rookie defensive season, Webb made 36 tackles, broke up six passes and recorded one sack.
Gaither remains out with back injuries and there is no time table for his return.
Cousins was carted off the practice field last week. It was revealed that Cousins suffered a concussion. With head injuries being the hot topic in sports today, you can be sure that Cousins will not be rushed back to play on the already depleted offensive line.
Kindle will be headed to Baltimore this week for an evaluation as to the extent of his head injury. Kindle fractured his skull in the offseason after falling down two flights of stairs. Kindle remains unsigned and the evaluation will help to tell if he will need to miss the entire season as he rehabs. The Ravens second round pick(43rd) was expected to be an impact player in his rookie year.
Word is that Reed continues to rehab his hip and that he is happy with his progress.
