Lardarius Webb is still sidelined as he tries to work back from a torn ACL, but both of the Ravens might get their top two active cornerbacks on the field Saturday night against the Redskins.
Fabian Washington and Chris Carr have been dealing with injury issues of their own, but both participated in practice today and the hope is they will be able to suit up against the Skins.
Carr suffered a hamstring injury nearly two weeks ago, and has seen limited action during full team drills since then. This morning, however, the six-year veteran was out there running around with the first-team defense.
"If I feel good enough to play a lot Saturday night, I will," Carr said. "I felt pretty good out here. The last couple days, I came out here and practiced a little bit and did some conditioning and during my exercises, my [injured left] hamstring felt just as strong as my right one does.
"That was a good sign, so I felt so I felt pretty confident coming out here today being able to do everything."
Washington said he expects to start against the Skins, which would represent the cornerback's first game action since tearing his ACL last November.
It's been a long road to recovery for the Nebraska product, one that Carr has seen from the outside looking in.
Washington and Carr were teammates with the Raiders from 2005-2007, and the two have played together for five out of their six years in the NFL.
"He's always been a hard worker," Carr said of Washington. "He's all about football, and it's good to see him out there. That's a long rehab, so to see him out here running around [and he] still has his speed 100 percent, it's really good."
