The sting of a 23-20 loss to the Bills wasn’t the only pain the Ravens endured Sunday as cornerback Lardarius Webb and wide receiver Deonte Thompson each left the game with injuries.

Webb suffered what was described as a thigh injury, and coach John Harbaugh said they will know more about its severity on Monday. He left the game in the first half but was able to run and backpedal on the sideline, indicating that it shouldn’t keep him out for an extended period of time despite being held out for the remainder of the afternoon.

Making his 2013 debut, Thompson performed well offensively as he caught four passes for 50 yards on five targets from quarterback Joe Flacco. However, the second-year wideout suffered a concussion while making a 33-yard reception in the fourth quarter when Bills safety Jim Leonhard was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver.

It was Thompson’s first action since spraining his foot in the preseason opener on Aug. 8.

Linebacker Albert McClellan injured his shoulder and will undergo magnetic resonance imaging testing on Monday. He underwent shoulder surgery in the offseason.

Wide receiver Marlon Brown was dealing with a thigh injury at the end of the game, according to Harbaugh.

The good news for the Ravens was the ability of running back Ray Rice to make it through Sunday’s game without aggravating the left hip flexor strain that kept him sidelined in Week 3. Rice was held to just 17 yards on five carries against the Bills.
