Lardarius Webb injury update: Ravens CB scheduled for hernia surgery

Larry French

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb will have sports hernia surgery in the offseason.

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb will have a sports hernia surgery, according to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun. Webb has been dealing with the issue for much of the season, appearing on the injury report multiple times with what was described as an abdomen injury.

The surgery is considered minor, so there is no timetable for recovery, as Webb will be expected at 100 percent for any offseason deadline such as OTAs or training camp. The Ravens did not make the postseason, failing to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.

Webb finished the season with two interceptions, and finished on a high note despite his injuries. He tore his ACL against the Dallas Cowboys in 2012 and was slow to get back on track when he returned this season. Both of his interceptions came against Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.

Fellow cornerback Jimmy Smith had the same surgery last year during the season. He returned successfully and made an impact in the playoffs.
