Lardarius Webb injury: Ravens expect CB ready for camp

Grant Halverson

It's been a tumultuous offseason for the Baltimore Ravens, but they look to get back a vital member of their secondary for training camp.

Roster turnover has been the story for much of the Ravens' offseason, as the team made moves to play younger and cheaper in 2013. Thankfully they'll be getting back one constant, as the organization expects Lardarius Webb to be ready for training camp, after tearing his ACL in Week 6 of 2012.

Winning the Super Bowl without their No. 1 cornerback is a testament to just how good Baltimore's defense was last year. However, with leaders Ray Lewis and Ed Reed gone, the secondary will lean heavily on the 27-year-old Webb to fill a leadership role as well as being their playmaker.

Webb was awarded a six-year, $50 million deal prior to the 2012 season, after he finished his first year as a full-time starter in 2011 with five interceptions and 20 passes defended. It's vital that he can return to his 2011 form, as the Ravens' depth at cornerback is shaky. Jimmy Smith hasn't progressed as the Ravens hoped, while Corey Graham is likely to start across from Webb to start the 2013 season.
