Ravens DT Michael Pierce (illness) is active for today's game against the Titans. Teammates CB Lardarius Webb and CB Jimmy Smith are also playing through "questionable" tags. None is a meaningful IDP option this week.

Former Chargers S Eric Weddle tweeted Monday that he will be signing with the Ravens. Adam Schefter reports that it's a 4-year, $26 million deal. According to ESPN.com, the team is now expected to release either S Will Hill or S Kendrick Lewis. Weddle, 31, will likely start next to Lardarius Webb, who deemed himself in January a free safety going forward. Weddle can play in coverage and in the box and should be the best bet for trustworthy IDP numbers the Baltimore secondary has contained in a long time. The Chargers had already signed S Dwight Lowery from the Colts to replace Weddle.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb is questionable again for Thursday night's clash with the Steelers because of the back injury that kept him out of Week 1.  Webb has practiced this week, but he also did so leading up to the opener and was reportedly expected to play then.  Webb makes for a very iffy IDP option in Week 2.  If you do hope to use him, pay attention to the Thursday night inactives.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb is inactive against the Bengals in Week 1 because of a back injury that limited him throughout the preseason.  He entered the weekend questionable but had been deemed likely to play by a Baltimore Sun report.  Asa Jackson and Chykie Brown are the next 2 CBs on the Baltimore depth chart, but neither makes for a strong IDP replacement.  Check our updated DB rankings if you need a Webb fill-in.  Losing Webb knocks the Ravens' D down our Week 1 rankings a bit.

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports that Ravens CB Lardarius Webb is expected to play in Sunday's opener against the Bengals.  Webb's officially listed as questionable but put in a full practice on Friday.  Wilson reports that he's not at 100%.  That doesn't knock Baltimore's best CB out of starter range for us in IDP formats.  But you'll need to weigh his risk vs. your other options.  Webb's certainly more worth the gamble in a CB-specific lineup slot.  Webb dealt with a back injury all preseason and played in none of the team's exhibition games.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb will sit out at least the 1st 2 preseason games because of a lingering back injury, according to ESPN.com.  "Maybe he'll play in the third [preseason game], maybe not," HC John Harbaugh said Saturday. "It's really not that important for him. I want to get him right."  Webb has missed 7 practices as of Saturday, which is enough to make the injury worrisome.  He doesn't sit high in the IDP rankings to begin with, though, so it's not a huge fantasy issue.  Missing Webb for any regular-season time would hurt the Ravens' secondary, though.

The Ravens defense will have NT Haloti Ngata, CB Lardarius Webb and LB Daryl Smith in the lineup against the Jets today.  All 3 had been listed as questionable, with Ngata the most iffy for the game.  A full-strength Baltimore D poses a tough matchup for Jets RB Chris Ivory, though we expect this game to remain close.
Five Ravens defensive starters are questionable for Sunday's game at Chicago.  DL Haloti Ngata (knee), LB Daryl Smith (thigh), CB Lardarius Webb (groin), CB Jimmy Smith (groin) and S James Ihedigbo (toe) were all limited in practice this week, but all seem likely to play.  Both Smiths and Ihedigbo showed up as questionable last week before playing against Cincinnati.
Sounds like Ravens CB Lardarius Webb will be ready to start Thursday night at Denver.  “I think he’s absolutely ready to go,” DC Dean Pees told the Carroll County Times on Monday. “I think he’s ready to play.”  Baltimore brought Webb along slowly throughout the summer but appears prepared to throw him in against Peyton Manning.  Look for Manning to test Webb, who's coming off his 2nd ACL tear.  That could mean some good IDP numbers whether the corner performs well or not.  Look for our Week 1 rankings at DB and every other position this Wednesday.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Ravens CB Lardarius Webb is ahead of schedule in his return from a torn left ACL.  Webb reportedly isn't trying to rush back to the field but has made "significant progress" in his rehab.  His healthy return for the start of the season would be great news for Baltimore's pass defense.  Pro Football Focus rated Webb the league's #4 CB overall in 2011 and 2nd only to Darrelle Revis in coverage that season.  His return upside adds to a solid IDP profile as well.  Expect the Ravens to be cautious with Webb through camp and the preseason, but he appears on track for the opener after the October injury.


The Ravens lost a pair of important defensive players today -- possibly for the season. ILB Ray Lewis suffered a torn triceps. Doctors reportedly don't believe it was a complete tear of the muscle but still think it could be severe enough to shut Lewis down for the rest of the year. He's expected to get an MRI Monday morning for the full diagnosis. CB Lardarius Webb, meanwhile, tore his left ACL and will certainly hit IR. It's the 2nd career ACL tear for Webb. He tore his right ACL back in 2009. Jimmy Smith should step into the starting lineup as a result. Jameel McClain could fill Lewis' role.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb is active and starting against the Chargers tonight, despite missing practice all week with a toe injury. HC Joh Harbaugh reportedly thought he performed well enough in pregame warmups to go. It certainly didn't hurt Webb's chances that backup Chris Carr is dealing with back soreness. Webb's injury could help the San Diego pass offense a bit.

The Ravens head into Sunday night's Chargers matchup with several questionable starters on defense. Ray Lewis (toe) is among that group once again after putting in limited practices all week. He seems on track to return, but we'll have to see what the weekend reports say. Haloti Ngata is dealing with a back injury but practiced Thursday and Friday and seems likely to play. CB Lardarius Webb missed all week with a toe injury of his own and seems likely to sit. DE Cory Redding (ankle) returned to limited practice Friday and said he plans to play. The Sunday night kickoff means that many IDP owners will have to guess a bit.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb came away from Sunday's game with turf toe, which could cost him a game or more. That's according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times. Wilson also reports, however, that HC John Harbaugh said everyone who played in Week 14 is expected to be available in Week 15. We'll see what happens as this week wears on, but IDP owners should plan to not have Webb available this weekend.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (knee) is inactive for tonight's game against the Jets.  This is a favorable matchup for New York's passing game.  Let's see what QB Mark Sanchez can do with it.
