The Ravens were pleased with how cornerback Lardarius Webb moved around during his first regular-season game since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last October against the Dallas Cowboys. “His knee looked good, I didn't see any issues with it,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “I really feel like physically he's only going to get better as he goes forward.” The $50 million cornerback finished the game with one tackle and one pass deflection. He didn't display any hesitation with his surgically-repaired knee and closed quickly on pass patterns.

When Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco took his first snap in the full-squad portion of Wednesday's practice, three of his usual five starting linemen were nowhere to be found. Despite that - and a shaky performance by the offensive line last Sunday - Flacco said he has no concerns about the group. "I'm not even thinking about that," Flacco said. "Three out of five games, I haven't really been touched. This past week, it's really the situation that we have to fix as a whole group.

Besides defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, another candidate to possibly have his contract restructured this offseason is cornerback Lardarius Webb. Webb had a strong season and rebounded from major knee surgery a year ago. He was one of the team's leading tacklers, with 74. But Webb is also scheduled to make $7.5 million next season with a cap figure of $10.5 million. The Ravens might want to lower both. ** Maybe running back Ray Rice didn't see much action in the first half Sunday because of the shouting match he had with fullback Vonta Leach shortly before the game started.

With an expertly timed delayed blitz late in the first quarter Sunday, Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley shot through a gap in the Indianapolis Colts' offensive line. As quarterback Andrew Luck wound up, Mosley crushed him, popping the football into the air and into the arms of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for an interception. It wasn't the only impactful play the first-round draft pick and reigning Butkus Award winner delivered during the Ravens' 20-13 road loss Sunday.

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith recently chatted with Mark Kriegel of FOX Sports, who asked the 2011 first-round pick about the draft process, how he stacked up against his peers, what Ray Lewis said to him over the weekend and which number he plans on wearing in Baltimore. One thing we’ve learned about the Ravens’ newest cornerback is that he has plenty of confidence. Smith thinks he is the best cornerback in this class , ahead of Patrick Peterson, who went fifth overall to the Cardinals, and Prince Amukamara, who went 19th to the Giants.

Given all the glorious memories, the individual accolades, the passion he has exuded, and his significance to his team, his city and the game he has sacrificed his body and long-term health for since joining the Ravens in 1996, it's understandable why so much of the focus over the past 48 hours has been the loss of Ray Lewis. This is a living legend we are talking about -- a linebacker whose bust should have been bronzed by now. But as far as the team's Super Bowl hopes go, the most significant strand of tissue shredded Sunday was not the right triceps of Lewis, but the anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee of cornerback Lardarius Webb.

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...

Cornerback Lardarius Webb reached an agreement on a five-year, $50-million extension with the Ravens five days ago and officially signed his contract last Friday so the reality has long set in. He knows that his financial future is now secure, and the new deal will bring increased pressure off the field. But he also knows that his new contract, which includes a $10-million signing bonus, doesn't change a thing about his goals and aspirations on the field.    “There are plenty of things that I can do better,” Webb said today in a phone interview with The Sun . “I can be an All Pro. I can make the Pro Bowl.

Talented young cornerbacks are at a premium in what has become a pass-happy NFL, but the Ravens feel like they have three of them. And Thursday, they made sure their most accomplished cover man will stay in a Ravens uniform for a long time. Fulfilling one of their offseason priorities, the Ravens reached agreement on a six-year, $50 million deal with Lardarius Webb, who emerged as a shutdown cornerback during the team's run to the AFC championship game last season. Webb, 26, will be in Baltimore next week to take a physical and sign the contract, which includes a $10 million signing bonus and $20 million guaranteed.

One might think it would be tough to find a positive in the Ravens secondary after Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw for seven touchdowns Thursday night. After all, Corey Graham had his rockiest game with the Ravens, Michael Huff did not cover or tackle well and Jimmy Smith got beat for a touchdown, too. But in his return to a real game after his second anterior cruciate ligament injury in four years, Lardarius Webb gave the Ravens a little something to feel good about by playing 62 of the 71 defensive snaps against the Broncos -- and playing well.

GAME PLAN: The Ravens regressed offensively despite a concerted effort to spread the football around in the passing game. Trailing on the scoreboard and dealing with frequent pass-protection breakdowns, their reaction was to throw more instead of trying to pound the football on the ground. With Joe Flacco under duress, Gary Kubiak was unable to execute his strategy. A litany of failures on third down - they went 1-for-11 for a 9-percent conversion rate - prevented drives from getting untracked.

INDIANAPOLIS -- It wasn't long before Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck discovered the location of Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb . Once Luck found Webb, he began regularly peppering the veteran cornerback with a series of short-to-intermediate passes to his receivers. Webb allowed no touchdown passes or deep completions, but Luck completed several passes on him for first downs during the Colts' 20-13 win on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. That included the bulk of wide receiver Reggie Wayne 's seven catches for 77 yards along with a 16-yard completion to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks in the fourth quarter two plays before Luck rushed for a 13-yard touchdown.

The Ravens persevered through key injuries, an early division-heavy schedule, the challenge of grasping a new offense and seemingly daily off-the-field distractions to finish the first quarter of the regular season with a 3-1 record. But as players and coaches exited the locker room late Sunday afternoon after a 38-10 blowout of the Carolina Panthers, the solid start to the season was tempered by an understanding of the challenges ahead. Coach John Harbaugh and his players won't be talking this week about anything beyond Sunday's game in Indianapolis against the formidable Colts, but it's not a stretch to suggest that the next five weeks could define the Ravens' regular-season.

Ravens strong safety Matt Elam motioned with his hand in the opposite direction of the football as his eyes darted toward teammates trailing the play. Elam appeared lost at how to react Sunday when he failed to touch Taylor Gabriel down after the Cleveland Browns' wide receiver burst past him, allowing extra yardage after an already long reception. Confusion reigned in the Ravens' secondary during the 23-21 victory where Elam and teammates were frequently not on the same page.

Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston answers readers' questions on the Ravens' win over the Cleveland Browns and other topics about the team. Going forward, to what extent does potentially losing Dennis Pitta for the year impact the offense? Does the offense have playmakers who can step in and lessen Pitta's absence? Does his injury appear to be career-ending? -- Craig, Winchester, Va. Craig, you have to be nervous about the loss of tight end Dennis Pitta. Pitta was supposed to be the replacement for Anquan Boldin last year, and the offense clearly suffered all of last season without him. This season needs to be different.

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.

A year ago, Lardarius Webb was an emerging lockdown cornerback considered dangerous enough that quarterbacks looked for other options before throwing in his direction. Now, the Ravens veteran cornerback is adjusting to a different reality where offenses are actively targeting him. It's been a major change for Webb since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last October while covering Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. Regarded as a rising young NFL player who had entered Pro Bowl selection conversation last season, Webb is determined to work his way back.

As Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb was in the early stages of rehabilitating his surgically repaired anterior cruciate ligament, he watched one of the NFL's brightest stars perform remarkable feats less than a year after suffering a similar injury. It wasn't that Webb was keeping tabs on Adrian Peterson as the Minnesota Vikings running back chased a 28-year-old NFL record. Webb had been through this injury before and knew the physical and mental toll it took to return. But as his most recent recovery ramped up, he couldn't help but notice what Peterson was doing.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their initial thoughts on the Ravens' game against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 of the 2014 NFL season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: This one came at a huge cost. Dennis Pitta may be done for the season with a hip injury. Terrell Suggs (groin) and Chris Canty (knee) both left the game early. Left tackle Eugene Monroe and cornerback Jimmy Smith both hobbled out of the locker room. It's fair to question what the Ravens will be able to get from cornerback Lardarius Webb after watching him play today.
