Lardarius Webb injures knee in collision with Dez Bryant; Ravens fear a torn ACL

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

UPDATE: According to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora, the Ravens fear that cornerback Lardarius Webb has torn his ACL and will be lost for the season.

La Canfora writes that Webb, a vital member of the Baltimore defense, "is crushed."

----------

Lardarius Webb has turned himself into one of the better cornerbacks in the league, but after colliding with Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant late in the first quarter, the Ravens cornerback had to be helped off the field without putting any weight on his leg.

The Fox broadcast says Webb has a left knee sprain and his return is questionable.

It appeared that Webb and Bryant might have gone knee to knee with Webb trying to defend a Tony Romo pass. After the two collided, Webb immediately went to the turf holding his leg while Bryant caught an 18-yard pass.

On the season, Webb has one interception and six passes defended, and his absence certainly would affect a Ravens defense that has looked old and slow on Sunday vs. Dallas.

Further affecting the Ravens is the fact that Haloti Ngata also is out with a sprained knee. His return was questionable, but he has since returned.
