Lardarius Webb won’t play in first two preseason games

The Ravens didn’t find anything structurally wrong with cornerback Lardarius Webb’s back, but they’ll be taking things very slowly with him this summer anyway.

Coach John Harbaugh said that Webb, who has missed the last seven practices with a back injury suffered early in camp, will not play in the team’s first two preseason games. Harbaugh also said it hasn’t been decided whether or not he’ll play in the third game.

“Maybe he’ll play in the third, maybe not. It’s really not that important for him. I want to get him right,” Harbaugh said, via ESPN.com. “There are things going on in there that aren’t long-term things. This early part of camp, I just don’t want to put him through this with his back. I would rather keep him out of this first part of training camp and see how it feels more toward the end of camp.”

Webb also had sports hernia surgery this offseason, so the Ravens have even more reason to work him back into the lineup slowly. The Ravens play the 49ers to open the preseason and then have dates with the Cowboys and Redskins before closing out the preseason with a trip to New Orleans.

    This guy is constantly hurt. It’s to bad he can hold with the best of them when he’s healthy.

    Good. Rest him. Let’s see what our other guys can do. Hopefully Asa or Chykie will step up. I have faith in Asa Jackson.
