Ravens veteran cornerback Lardarius Webb was pulled from the game by coach John Harbaugh after playing just four snaps against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

It marked his first game back from a lower back injury that prevented him from playing in the first two regular season games and the entire preseason.

Webb finished with one tackle and had trouble staying with receivers in his season debut, but is hopeful that coach John Harbaugh will increase his playing time this week.

"That was just a preview,” said Webb, who underwent offseason sports hernia surgery before hurting his back on the second day of training camp. "He wanted to ease me into it. I’m going to keep on grinding. It’s basically waiting for Harbs to let me loose.

"They wanted me to get a couple of plays and let me feel the game. Eventually, he’ll open me up and let me go. That’s all I’m waiting on. I feel good, man. No setbacks."
