Harbaugh expects Webb to play vs. Chargers

Despite a report that cornerback Lardarius Webb will miss at least one game because of a turf toe injury, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said today that he expects Webb to play this Sunday night against the Chargers.

Speaking generally about the Ravens’ injury situation, Harbaugh said that he thinks everyone who suited up and played yesterday in a win over the Colts should be able to do so again this upcoming weekend.

“As far as injuries go, just like (we said) last night, there’s nothing serious coming out of that game,” Harbaugh said. “We’ve got bumps and bruises. There may be some guys that we rest throughout the course of the week practice-wise, but we anticipate everybody who was playing last week healthy-wise to be healthy this week, and we’re hoping to add some guys. We’ll see. You’ve got guys like Ray (Lewis), Chris Carr off the top of my head.”

Asked specifically about Webb, Harbaugh referred back to his previous point.

“Lardarius played last week, so you have that answer,” he said. “But those other two guys will have a chance for this week. We’ll just have to see.”

105.7 The Fan reported earlier today that Webb suffered a toe injury in yesterday’s win over the Colts and is expected to miss at least Sunday’s game at San Diego.

Webb was on the field during the Ravens’ second-to-last defensive series of the game, but he did not appear during the Colts’ final drive of the lopsided affair.

Meanwhile, there was word that the Ravens were targeting this Sunday’s game as a return date for Lewis, who has now missed four games in a row because of a turf toe injury of his own.

When questioned about Lewis’ status at this point, Harbaugh simply replied: “He’s doing a good job.”
