Webb remains unchanged by change in injury report

News that Lardarius Webb had been removed from the Ravens' injury report Wednesday had filtered down to nearly everybody – except for the cornerback himself.

And as informative as that omission from the injury report is, Webb said Thursday that it still doesn't alter his wait-and-see status for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

"It doesn't change anything for me," he said. "I'm still trying to get healthy. I guess we'll know when I'm back, when I hit that field. Right now, I'm just still working out the kinks."

Webb, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Dec. 20, had been listed as probable last week, but he was deactivated minutes before the team's 10-9 season-opening victory over the New York Jets Monday night.

Webb has emphasized that his return will be a joint decision between he, coach John Harbaugh and trainer Bill Tessendorf. Until then, his approach is the same.

"I just prepare every week like I'm playing," Webb said. "If I'm not feeling that well to play that day, then I'm not playing. But I always prepare to play even if I'm not physically able to. I'll be ready."

Webb started four games at cornerback after Fabian Washington tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Nov. 22. But Harbaugh said Tuesday that Webb could rotate with safeties Haruki Nakamura and Ken Hamlin and line up in the slot with Washington and Carr playing the corners.

Webb said he had no opposition to either role.

"It's all on John, whatever he has for me," he said. "I think he knows what's best for me, so I'll leave it up to him."
