Playing it safe, the Ravens will not risk re-injury to cornerback Lardarius Webb in the team's first two preseason games, coach John Harbaugh told reporters on Saturday.

Hey, there's no reason to rush Webb at this time. It's the preseason after all, and established players are able to adapt without the reps that other players need at this time of the year.

Webb needs to focus on getting his injured back healthy before hitting the playing field. If that involves missing the entire preseason, when it's all said and done, then so be it.
