Ravens cornerback Webb dealing with toe injury

A day after the Ravens reported no new injuries following a 24-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts, it appears they may have lost one of their starting cornerbacks for the time being.

Lardarius Webb reportedly suffered a toe injury late in the game on Sunday afternoon and could be sidelined for a few weeks, according to the Carroll County Times. The ailment would leave a big hole at cornerback opposite Cary Williams as rookie Jimmy Smith would likely start in Webb’s place if he’s unable to play against the San Diego Chargers this Sunday night.

With veteran Chris Carr still sidelined with a back injury that’s caused him to miss the Ravens’ last three games, Webb’s injury raises more concern should he be sidelined for an extended period of time.

The third-year defensive back from Nicholls State leads the team with four interceptions and has played at a Pro Bowl level after injuries to Domonique Foxworth, Carr, and Smith forced Webb into a starting role at the beginning of the season.

For those wondering why the Ravens didn’t mention the injury following Sunday’s game, they did not report the toe injuries suffered by left guard Ben Grubbs and linebacker Ray Lewis earlier this season.
