Lardarius Webb is very close to returning
By Brent Sobleski
Baltimore Ravens' cornerback Lardarius Webb could see the field sooner than expected. Webb could play in Thursday's contest against the Carolina Panthers according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Post.
Whether or not Webb plays in the contest or the final preseason game, the team is confident its top cornerback will be back in the lineup to open the season.
"It’s good," Baltimore's secondary coach Teryl Austin told Wilson. "We’ve brought 'Webby' along slowly. We want to make sure we work him in, not do anything too fast for him. But he’s participated fully the last few days, and we feel good about him.
"It’s not the full amount of reps, but he’s done everything that we’ve asked him to do. I would anticipate that, barring any setbacks, I’m hopeful that he’ll be ready that first game, for sure."
