Webb not expected to play Saturday night

Lardarius Webb was activated off the team's physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list on Monday, but the cornerback is not expected to play in the Ravens' preseason contest against the New York Giants at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday night.

Webb has returned after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Dec. 20 and participated in pre-game warmups, but the second-year player has been scratched. That means that Fabian Washington and Chris Carr, who had been bothered by a left hamstring injury last week, are in line to start.

The team also won't have the services of offensive tackles Jared Gaither (disk in back) and Oniel Cousins (concussion), paving the way for Tony Moll to make his second consecutive start at right tackle.

The Ravens scratched safeties Ed Reed (offseason hip surgery – PUP list) and Marcus Paschal (right leg), wide receivers Demetrius Williams (sprained right ankle) and Eron Riley (strained back), guards David Hale (bruised tailbone) and Daniel Sanders (left arm/shoulder), rookie nose tackle Terrence Cody (swelling in left knee), linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (offseason quad surgery – PUP) and running back Matt Lawrence (knee – PUP).

Tom Zbikowski will make his third straight start at free safety for Reed.

The Giants deactivated cornerbacks Terrell Thomas and Aaron Ross, wide receivers Sinorice Moss and Ramses Barden, defensive linemen Chris Canty and Jason Pierre-Paul, center Shaun O'Hara, tight end Travis Beckum, linebacker Chase Blackburn, guard Kevin Booth, safety Michael Johnson, quarterback Jim Sorgi and running back D.J. Ware.
