   The Baltimore Ravens are looking forward to the return of their best cornerback, Lardarius Webb. The shutdown defender is way ahead of schedule and hopeful to make a return by Training Camp.  Webb tore his ACl in a week siix victory over the Dallas Cowboys and has diligently been rehabing his way back with Dr. James Andrews. Entering the second year of a $50 million contract, Webb told reporters that, "It's coming along, "I'm taking it slow. I'm working my butt off, coming along."  The Ravens are counting on him to return to form after losing starter Carry Williams in free agency. . Defensive coordinator Dean Pees said, "We use him a lot when we blitzed him in the slot as our nickel back. He was a good corner. He makes plays. He’s a good tackler. It looks like he’s a buck 50 out there, but the guy throws his body  around. He thinks he’s a linebacker."  This is not Webbs's first injury. He tore is other ACl in 2009 and made a speedy recovery to lead the Ravens in 2010. Over the past four years the corner out of Nichols State has been a constant presence in the Ravens secondary. In four NFL seasons, the 2009 third-round draft pick  has 181  career tackles, eight interceptions and 41 pass deflections. During the playoffs in 2012, and the start of the 2013 Webb looked like a Pro Bowler. The Ravens need him to return to form. "It's about determination and how bad I want to get back on that field. I missed  out last season and I was there for the ride, but I want to go to the Super Bowl  again. The Lord won't put me through anything I can't handle. I take everything  in stride." Webb also added.The Ravens could certainly use Webb back for Week 1, the Ravens play the Broncos in the 2013 Season Opener.
