Ravens To Start Rookie Corner Against Steelers

Meet Landarius Webb. He's a 5-foot-10, 179-pound cornerback out of Nicholls State (where he ran a 4.35 40), a former I-AA All-American -- and Sunday night he'll be the focus of Big Ben, Santonio Holmes, and Hines Ward as he makes his first NFL start in place of an injured Fabian Washington:

Webb’s game will be on display for the entire nation.

“It’s not about me, man,” he said. “I’m just out there filling a void for Fabian Washington.”

When he lines up across from Ward, Webb can expect some roughhouse tactics, some taunting words and that trademark grin.

“I don’t know what to expect, never been against these guys,” Webb said. “Great team, great quarterback, great wide receivers.

↵

“I heard it’s a very physical game. I don’t know what to expect. I just know it’s a very important game for the ball club.”

Yes, kid. Something tells us the Pittsburgh-Baltimore game will be a "physical" one. Just a hunch. No reason.
