Lardarius Webb’s back injury “lingering a little bit”

The Ravens shrugged off the severity of cornerback Lardarius Webb’s back injury over the weekend, but the level of concern in Baltimore has gone up after Webb remained out on Monday.

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that coach John Harbaugh said that Webb, who was forced out of Friday’s practice, is expected to have further evaluation of the problem in the coming days.

“He’s got some back things that we’re looking at right now,” Harbaugh said, via the Baltimore Sun. “Backs are a little weird. At first, it was no big deal. It’s lingering a little bit, so we’ll find out what’s going on with it.”

Webb bounced back well from a 2012 ACL tear and is slated to start across from Jimmy Smith this season. The Ravens lost Aaron Ross to a torn Achilles and Dominique Franks is on the NFI list, leaving them without much experienced depth at corner right now. That should help some younger players develop, but would be a problem if Webb’s back injury were to linger more than a little bit.

    The bigger concern to Ravens management is that this guy hasn’t demonstrated his offseason toughness by beating up women or being involved in a nightclub brawl/shooting.

    depleted corners + Ben in a contract year = a WK 2 blowout 56-3

    Lardarius is past his better days. Now i’d burn this guy for 5-125-1 without braking a sweat.

    it would take Ben a month to put up 56 points on a high school team

    Every team has one position that isn’t as strong as the rest.

    With our front 7 it remains to be seen if any WR is going to have time to get down the field, let alone get free. But realistically you have to be concerned with the lack of depth, however Ozzie knows this too so don’t be surprised if he makes a move to bring someone in.

    Anyone see Mckinnie, Darryl Smith, Pollard, Ihedgibo, TJ, or Monroe joining the team in the 11th hour?

    No. So don’t get too overconfident in August about the demise of the Ravens secondary. Samuel is still out there and if Flowers was cut, trust me someone else will be that no one figures should.

    No one except Ozzie.
