Owings Mills, MD (Sports Network) - Baltimore Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb
will miss the remainder of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament
in his left knee, while linebacker Ray Lewis will also be on the shelf for the
year with a torn triceps.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh confirmed the diagnoses at his Monday press
conference. The Baltimore Sun reported that an MRI taken earlier in the day
revealed the damage to Webb's knee.
Webb left Sunday's 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys and did
not return, departing late in the first quarter with an apparent leg
injury, which was later downgraded to knee sprain. While defending a pass,
Webb turned and his leg twisted awkwardly underneath him.
It's a blow to the 27-year-old fourth-year pro, who signed a lucrative $50
million, six-year contract in April. He finishes the season with 25 tackles
and one interception in six games.
Lewis was forced out of the final two defensive series on Sunday, and was
found to have a complete tear of the muscle. The 17th-year veteran out of
Miami-Florida compiled 57 tackles and one sack in six contests.
