Ravens cornerbacks aren't having the best luck with ACLs lately.
First Fabian Washington goes down last November. Then Lardarius Webb tears his a month later.
Then yesterday, during a non-contact orientation practice, Domonique Foxworth felt his knee pop.
The Ravens' No. 1 cornerback will be out for the entire 2010 season.
"The thing I'm the most disappointed about is for Domonique," head coach John Harbaugh said this afternoon. "Texted him last night back and forth, and he goes out of his way to tell me how sorry he is and how disappointed he is that he let everybody down.
"Nobody has worked harder to get ready for the season than he has, and we were counting on him. But the thing that we just talked to the team about that we're looking forward to is I can't wait to see who steps up. I can't wait to see who it is that we're all talking about a month from now that has stepped up to fill that spot.
"We're going to have a great defense and we're going to have a really, really good football team, and everybody's got to step up and do their part."
With Washington getting a day off after being taken off PUP yesterday and Webb still rehabbing his knee, the Ravens lined up with Chris Carr and Travis Fisher at corner during first-team drills today.
Harbaugh said he has faith in Carr, Fisher, Walt Harris, K.J. Gerard and the rest of the healthy cornerbacks, but that he's not sure if the team will add additional free agent corners to the mix.
"I think we'll find that out. I really believe that we've got the guys here that can do it, but by the same token, if there's somebody out there that can help us, we'll bring them in.
"I feel really good about Fabian. Fabian is coming on quickly. I feel really good about Lardarius. He's coming along well. So, I think those guys will be back in a reasonable amount of time, but it's hard to say, you can't predict exactly when."
"It happens to every team. There's always bumps in the road, bumps in the road all across the league. So if we handle it the right way, if we control the things we can control, we'll come out of this thing better.
