Webb was released by the Ravens on Friday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports. The releasing of one of Baltimore's longest tenured players likely comes as a result of the team's singing of safety Tony Jefferson, and Webb's absence will give the Ravens some cap relief. While the veteran cornerback-turned-safety hasn't been heavily involved in run-stopping up front, he does possess solid coverage skills and should have no problem finding a new home on the open market this offseason.
Webb picked up three tackles and snared his first interception of the season in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. The cornerback-turned-safety made an excellent play on a Ryan Tannehill pass intended for DeVante Parker in the end zone to keep the Dolphins off the scoreboard in the second quarter of Sunday's tilt. His tackling production took a dip, however, as he recorded three tackles after racking up 16 total tackles in his previous two games. In any case, Webb generally doesn't have the type of run-stopping role from his spot to make him a must-start in most IDP leagues.
Webb (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Steelers. Webb was able to recover from his hamstring injury during the Ravens' Week 8 bye, so he's slated to be back in the starting lineup at free safety in Week 9's divisional matchup.
Webb (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Webb went down in the Ravens' last game prior to the team's Week 8 bye, but appears to have taken advantage of the additional time to rest. Now practicing in full, he appears likely to assume his typical starting role at free safety against the Steelers this Sunday.
Webb will miss the rest of Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports. Webb's injury will be further examined to assess its severity, but the Ravens have a Week 8 bye, meaning the defensive back will have some extra time to recover. Look for Marqueston Huff to see starting snaps at free safety in Webb's absence.
