Ravens get good news on CB’s Washington and Webb

From Ravens Insider:

As the Ravens began their second passing camp Monday, cornerbacks Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb both received encouraging news on their recoveries from season-ending knee surgeries.

Washington expects to be ready for training camp after seeing his surgeon Monday, and Webb is “on schedule” to return, the cornerbacks tweeted Monday. Both saw Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala.

“Dr. [James] Andrews told me I was doing great,” Washington said in a tweet.

Washington was lost for the remainder of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee after the Ravens’ 17-15 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 22. Webb then tore the ACL in his right knee a month later in a 31-7 rout of the Chicago Bears.

This is incredibly encouraging news especially in regards to Webb’s status. I feel that if healthy he should be able to join Domonique Foxworth as the team’s starting corners. Webb showed great speed and a willingness to tackle in the open field that set him apart from others in the secondary.

Washington’s return would also help as he could compete with Chris Carr and Travis Fisher for time in Nickel and Dime coverage. The corner spot has been maligned over the past few seasons but health has been one of the reasons why that position hasn’t performed as well as hoped.
