Needing to make room on their roster for former New England Patriots and New York Jets safety James Ihedigbo , the Ravens today cut cornerback Danny Gorrer who played in 11 games for them last season. Originally signed to the Ravens practice squad last September, Gorrer, 26, was signed to their active roster two weeks later and was active for 12 total contests including both playoff games. He had three tackles and four passes defended. The Ravens thought highly of Gorrer, but he was ultimately the victim of a number's game.

There was no disputing that the Ravens' top three cornerbacks last season were starters Lardarius Webb and Cary Williams and top backup Jimmy Smith. The first cornerback off the bench after that trio was Danny Gorrer. Whether that scenario plays out this year is up in the air. Webb, Williams and Smith are back, but Corey Graham, a Pro Bowler for his prowess on special teams, was signed to a free-agent deal in March. A month later, the organization selected Asa Jackson in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

Ravens offensive guard Ben Grubbs, who was doubtful with a toe injury, is out for today's game against the Tennessee Titans. Andre Gurode is expected to start in his place. Grubbs had played in every game during his carer (65), which was the Ravens' fourth longest active streak. Wide receiver Tandon Doss, cornerbacks Jimmy Smith, Chykie Brown and Chris Carr, nose tackle Brandon McKinney and outside linebacker Sergio Kindle are also inactive for the Ravens. That means cornerback Danny Gorrer, who was signed from the practice squad yesterday, is active.

For the first time since Nov. 13, inside linebacker Ray Lewis will be active for a Ravens game, and the 12-time Pro Bowler is expected to take his usual starting spot against the San Diego Chargers Sunday night. Lewis has missed the team's last four games because of a turf toe injury on his right foot, but he did practice all three days last week - albeit on a limited basis - and was listed as questionable. Cornerback Lardarius Webb is also active despite not practicing last week due to a toe injury on his left foot.

With cornerbacks Jimmy Smith and Chris Carr both out for tomorrow's game against the Tennessee Titans, the Ravens today made a move to address their secondary depth, waiving linebacker Jason Phillips and signing cornerback Danny Gorrer from their practice squad to the 53-man roster. Gorrer, who signed with the Ravens as a free agent in 2010, spent the majority of last season on the practice squad. Gorrer, a second-year player who played at Texas A&M, has seen action in three NFL games, all with the St. Louis Rams.

The status of Tom Zbikowski remains unclear after the starting strong safety suffered a concussion in the Ravens' 34-17 victory over the New York Jets Sunday night. Coach John Harbaugh could not provide an update on Zbikowski's health during his weekly briefing Monday afternoon, saying, “I have not heard anything along those lines. So I don't have any information for you on that.” Zbikowski did not return to the game after sustaining the head injury. His absence forced the defense to stray from its three-safety approach in its nickel package and insert Danny Gorrer as the fifth defensive back.

The Ravens' trip to San Diego to face the Chargers on Sunday night did not get off to a smooth start today. In fact, it almost didn't get off the ground at all. After Ravens players started Tweeting about the delay, we reached out to a Ravens spokesman who said, "We are on the plane and scheduled to take off soon. They worked through a mechanical issue that had delayed us. " But that didn't make the players feel any better. Some of the tweets from the plane: @vleach44: we taking off pray for our safety @bryantmckinnie: Ok they said the plane is fixed!

In the end, the Cleveland Browns' successful challenge of an on-field ruling that wide receiver Jordan Norwood had fumbled a catch didn't amount to much as the Ravens won easily, 24-10, on Sunday. But the reversal - which turned the seven-yard gain in the second quarter into an incompletion - did cost cornerback Danny Gorrer the first forced fumble of his career and free safety Ed Reed his first recovered fumble of the season. During his weekly news conference Monday, coach John Harbaugh maintained that the initial ruling was the correct call.

Cornerback Cary Williams and wide receiver Tandon Doss got into a heated argument during Monday's practice but they were separated before the altercation got physical. It all started when Williams and wide receiver Torrey Smith exchanged a few words, with Williams accusing Smith of holding him. Then Doss, who sat out the practice with a minor hamstring injury, began taunting Williams loudly from near the huddle. After Doss lobbed insults at Williams from about 10 yards away for a minute or two, he finally got under the cornerback's skin.

The Ravens just got off the field after today's voluntary offseason team activity. Cornerback Jimmy Smith and left tackle Bryant McKinnie were present after missing last Wednesday's practice, but 19 players, including second-year players Jah Reid and Pernell McPhee, were not.

Jimmy Smith was standing less than 10 yards away and listening to his head coach field questions from reporters. So when John Harbaugh was asked about the Ravens' second-year cornerback, he flashed a quick smile toward Smith and then answered in a manner one might expect given his audience. "I expect greatness from Jimmy Smith but he expects that from himself," Harbaugh said. "Jimmy has worked really, really hard, and again, it's another guy that it's showing in the way he's playing.

Defensive backs are scheduled to meet with teams and reporters today, which should serve as a reminder to the significant improvements the organization has made at the cornerback spot in a year's span. Last year at the NFL Scouting Combine, one of the Ravens' biggest needs was a cornerback and they wound up using two of their first five picks in the draft to address it, selecting Jimmy Smith (Colorado) in the first round and Chykie Brown (Texas) in the fifth. This year, the cornerback position is barely on the Ravens' radar. Now, I'm not saying that the Ravens won't use a mid-to-late-round pick on one because you can never have enough corners these days in the NFL. But I am saying that the Ravens consider the position one of their chief strengths going forward and feel no urgency to upgrade it, just like at quarterback and tight end. That's because Lardarius Webb, a third-round pick out of Nicholls State in 2009, is emerging as a legitimate shutdown corner at the age of 26. Webb is a restricted free agent and the Ravens are expected to put a first-round tender on him. But what they'd really like to do is sign him to a long-term contract extension.

The Ravens listed defensive tackle Haloti Ngata as probable for Sunday night's showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The two-time Pro Bowl selection was limited in practice Friday after sitting out sessions on Wednesday and Thursday with what the team described as a thigh injury. Center Matt Birk (neck) and cornerback Danny Gorrer (thigh) joined Ngata among the probables. Both were upgraded to full participation Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday.

With the Ravens shorthanded at cornerback and safety, Danny Gorrer got a few reps as the third cornerback in Sunday night's 34-17 victory over the New York Jets, enjoying his longest stint of the season. When the defense went to its nickel package in the second half, Gorrer lined up against the outside receiver, and starter Lardarius Webb shifted to the slot receiver. “It was just an amazing feeling being out there with the guys, knowing that they trust me enough to get out there and play with them,” said Gorrer, who broke up one pass.

Left guard Ben Grubbs, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and center Matt Birk are active for the Ravens' clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night at Heinz Field. Grubbs has not played since the season opener against the Steelers on Sept. 11 after straining ligaments in a toe on his right foot. He was limited in all three practices this past week and had been listed as questionable. If Grubbs is active, it's anticipated that he will start at left guard for Andre Gurode, who had made five consecutive starts at that position.
