Lardarius Webb had targeted the team's season opener for his return from the anterior cruciate ligament he had torn in his right knee on Dec. 20, but the comeback was delayed as the cornerback was declared inactive by team.
"We didn't know," Webb said of his readiness for the Jets. "I was just coming prepared to play. We were going to come to a group decision, and the decision was for me to sit out."
Solid performances by Fabian Washington and Chris Carr have helped alleviate any pressure on Webb, who said, "We're not going to rush it. … I would like to be around the Ravens for a while, and I just want to be 100 percent when I do give them my 100 percent. I will be back soon."
Coach John Harbaugh said on Tuesday that the organization would continue to be cautious with Webb.
"It's just a healing process," Harbaugh said. "… We've said before, we don't want to rush those guys back. We didn't want to rush Fabian back. Fabian, we really had to hold back. Lardarius, between he and the doctors and what we see, we're just going to take it slow. We want it to be right when he comes back. I thought he had a chance to play last week, and he wasn't able to do it in the end. I think he's got a chance to play this week. Whether he can do it or not, it's really going to be his decision."
