Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb is "ahead of schedule significantly" in his rehab from a torn ACL, coach John Harbaugh said.

Webb tore the ligament in his knee on Dec. 20 against Chicago and was placed on injured reserve.

During Tuesday's practice, he was working off to the side, cutting and backpedaling to test the knee.

“Lardarius has been here every single day – holidays, weekends,” Harbaugh said. “He’s been really doing beyond what you would expect him to do. He’s doing really well.”

 

Harbaugh also noted that Fabian Washington (knee) is also ahead of schedule.

Offensive tackle Jared Gaither has bruising on the bottom of his foot, an injury that coach John Harbaugh called "nothing major."

“He should be back here quickly,” Harbaugh said.

Gaither missed his fourth day of practice after being moved from left to right tackle earlier this month.

According to Harbaugh, Gaither saw Dr. Robert Anderson, a renowned orthopedist from Charlotte, N.C., last week and was recently testing out orthotic insoles.

“They worked on some orthotics [Monday], and he wasn’t comfortable with them,” Harbaugh said.

The Ravens moved Marshal Yanda from right guard to right tackle Tuesday and put Chris Chester at right guard. The team is also looking at Oniel Cousins at right tackle.

Backup quarterback Troy Smith will be out for a couple of weeks after having his tonsils removed in Cleveland.

That left the Ravens with two quarterbacks, Joe Flacco and John Beck. There is a chance that the Ravens could add another arm to fill Smith's void.

 

I'd say this is pretty good news, for the most part.  Webb and Washington are both ahead of schedule, Gaither only has a bruised foot (check out the first reader comment in that article!), and Beck will see more action on the second team offense.

The opinions posted here are those of the administrator of this blog and his loyal readers. They are in no way official comments from the team, and should not be misconstued as such, even though he thinks he could do just as well or even a better job!
