Lardarius Webb out for season with torn ACL

The Baltimore Ravens feared they had lost cornerback Lardarius Webb to a torn ACL following their Week 6 win over Dallas, and those fears were well-founded. After some evaluation by team doctors, head coach John Harbaugh has confirmed that Webb is lost for the year with the ACL tear, according to Aaron Wilson of Ravens Insider.

Webb tore his ACL while covering a Cowboys receiver on Sunday. He attempted to change directions and appeared to tweak the knee, instantly falling to the ground. He was helped off the field and did not return.

A fourth-year player out of Nicholls State, Webb has emerged as one of the premier cornerbacks in the NFL. He has recorded eight interceptions since the start of the 2010 season, which ranks among the best in the league. Through six weeks this season, Webb had picked off one pass, forced and recovered a fumble, and made 25 tackles for Baltimore.

The news of Webb being lost for the season came just hours after the team learned veteran linebacker Ray Lewis was also done for the year with a torn triceps muscle.

Baltimore may have lost two defensive stars.


Lardarius Webb suffered a torn ACL, reports say

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb tore his ACL Sunday playing against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Webb, the Ravens' top cornerback, will likely be headed for injured reserve and will miss the rest of the season. He suffered the injury while attempting to cover Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. Webb fell to the turf clutching his knee before being helped off the field. The injury was initially thought to be a sprain, but later examination revealed the torn ACL.

The injury will be a major blow for the Ravens defense, as Webb was widely regarded as their best cover corner. Baltimore signed Webb to a six-year, $52.74 million contract extension prior to the season. Without Webb, Baltimore will now likely rely on former first-round pick Jimmy Smith at the cornerback spot opposite Cary Williams.

In six games this season, Webb had 25 total tackles, six pass deflections and one interception.
