Fabian Washington's first game since Nov. 22 went off without a hitch.
In his first official action since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee against the Indianapolis Colts, the cornerback made one tackle and broke up one pass in the Ravens' 23-3 victory over the Washington Redskins Saturday night.
"I felt great," Washington said afterward. "My knee held up. Mentally, I felt great. So I would have to say I felt great."
Washington almost intercepted quarterback Donovan McNabb on a slant pass thrown behind wide receiver Anthony Armstrong on the Redskins' opening series. Washington wouldn't go as far as to say that his surgically-repaired knee feels as good as it did before the injury.
"It wasn't that great," he said. "It was close. I'm still not 100 percent. But I don't think I'll be 100 percent until the end of the season. But it felt good enough to where I can do anything I want to do. There's just some soreness there."
