Having been through the difficult and sometimes lonely process of rehabbing a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee suffered in the final month of his rookie campaign in 2009, Lardarius Webb is more than familiar with what it will take to bounce back from the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee sustained in the Ravens' 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 14. And despite the frustration of watching his teammates from...

The Ravens traded two draft picks to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for defensive lineman Marques Douglas and waived 2005 second-round pick Dan Cody. To acquire the eight-year veteran, the Ravens sent Tampa Bay a late-round draft choice in 2009 and a conditional pick in 2010. Douglas, 31, will fill the void left in the rotation by Dwan Edwards, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. The Ravens will also pick up the contract for Douglas, who recently signed a four-year, $10.1 million contract with Tampa Bay. This is the second stint with the Ravens for Douglas.

The Washington Redskins' training camp is beginning to look more like an emergency ward. As if trying to resuscitate a comatose offense isn't labor-intensive enough, the Redskins' defense is losing bodies to a spate of injuries. As many as nine defensive players may not suit up against the Cincinnati Bengals tonight at 8 at FedEx Field in Landover. That would match the number of players that stood on the sideline in Washington's 28-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Saturday. But if Gregg Williams, the assistant head coach in charge of the defense, is worried, he has a funny way of showing it. "That's a part of this game," Williams said.

Linebacker Dan Cody will miss most of the Ravens' preseason and possibly the entire season because of a knee injury. Cody, who hyperextended his right knee and tore a piece of cartilage during a noncontact pass-rushing drill May 20, said yesterday that he had the knee arthroscoped two weeks ago and will have to sit out four weeks before doctors can assess its stability. If the knee does not improve, Cody said, the next step would be microfracture surgery, a procedure during which tiny fractures are created in adjacent bones to give room for new cartilage to grow.

With more than a third of the Blast's roster sidelined with injuries after a 6-1 loss last night to the Milwaukee Wave, coach Tim Wittman said he will sign a 15-day playing contract just so the team will have enough players for the near future. "I can't believe the amount of injuries we're having," said Wittman, 41, shortly after learning his leading scorer, Denison Cabral, and forward Carlos Garcia may both need surgery to repair possible anterior-cruciate ligament knee injuries. "Every injury our players are getting are serious injuries," said Wittman.

The Ravens placed return specialist B.J. Sams, defensive tackle Justin Bannan and fullback Justin Green on injured reserve yesterday, ending their seasons. Sams' injury was initially reported by the team as a broken fibula in his right leg suffered during the Ravens' 13-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night, but was changed yesterday to a fractured ankle. Green suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament against Cincinnati, and Bannan dislocated a toe in a 27-0 rout of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Nov. 26. "We've said all along that the depth was going to be the strength of this team, and this is when it gets tested," coach Brian Billick said during his weekly media briefing at the team's practice facility in Owings Mills yesterday.

All Dan Cody has to show for his three years in the NFL are four injuries, 16 total plays and an immeasurable amount of frustration. Now, starting what could be his last training camp with the Ravens, Cody is working at a new position, but has the same goal in mind - just stay on the field. Switching from outside linebacker to defensive end, the hard-luck former second-round pick is optimistic this year could finally be his big break, one that won't land him on injured reserve for the first time in his career.

COLLEGE PARK -- He would lie on his back with the electric contraption strapped to his left knee for two hours every day, for at least two months. Doctors and athletic trainers urged Maryland running back Josh Allen to fall asleep with the machine on, as it continuously bent and straightened his surgically repaired knee. It was too painful, though, to sleep. During a football game in November 2004 against Wake Forest, Allen tore his anterior cruciate ligament, his posterior cruciate ligament, his lateral collateral ligament, his hamstring and a ligament in the back corner of his knee.

"While most athletes set lofty goals for their junior years, Kenwood's Ashley Singer has a more modest ambition - to stay on her feet. If she can manage that, the rest likely will fall into place for the junior, who ranked among the area's elite prep soccer players through half of the past two high school seasons. The sure-finishing, left-footed striker scored 12 goals as a freshman and 10 more as a sophomore. Those 22 goals came in just 16 games. In the eighth game of each season, both times against Perry Hall, Singer tore an anterior cruciate ligament - in her right knee as a freshman and in her left as a sophomore.

On crutches, Blast forward Denison Cabral watched his team lose to the expansion Chicago Storm, 3-1, last night, knowing he would not be able to help his teammates for a very long time. Cabral, the team's leading scorer this season with six goals and three assists in five games, was injured during the first period of Friday night's game with the Milwaukee Wave. He had a magnetic resonance imaging test yesterday that confirmed he has torn his anterior cruciate ligament and, possibly, his medial cruciate ligament and will have surgery in December.
