All indications are the Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb will be out on Sunday night against the Chargers. Webb suffered a turf toe injury against the Colts and has been sidelined during this week’s practices and seen in a protective boot.
The Ravens will get some help on defense as it appears that Ray Lewis will return from the same injury. Lewis has been out for three weeks with an ailing toe, but returned to practice after the Colts game.
While the Chargers have had quiet a roller coaster season, they’re a team that can stretch the field with their speedy and tall wide receivers. “It’s like when we went there in ’09 and they trotted out their receivers and TEs, it was like the Lakers,” Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano said.
With Webb likely sidelined, rookie Jimmy Smith is the next man up. “We’ve done a great job of preparing him up to now,” Webb said.
“He knows what he has to do.”
