The Baltimore Ravens had one of their worst fears confirmed today when it was revealed that cornerback Lardarius Webb will miss the rest of the 2012 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. According to Aaron Wilson of the The Baltimore Sun, a league source with knowledge of the situation informed him that an MRI exam confirmed exactly what the team had feared almost as soon as Webb hit the ground in the first quarter on Sunday having collided with Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant. For a defense already missing outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (Achilles), this is a devastating blow to a unit also facing up to life without Ray Lewis, who it's expected will also be ruled out for the rest of the year with a torn triceps. Webb's all round skills make him almost irreplaceable as not only does he excel as a cover corner, but he's also solid against the run. Jimmy Smith will take Webb's place as the starter at left cornerback, but it's not news that thrills him. "It's terrible to see your friend-slash-teammate go down like that, especially with the type of injury he already had to overcome in his career (torn right ACL in 2009)," Smith said. "Our hearts go out to him but at the same time it's next man up like always." Smith finds himself as that next man up. Right cornerback Cary Williams wasn't coy in showing emotion. "I hate it, man," he said. "Lardarius is my little brother. He's a great friend. I shed a tear at halftime because I see my brother down there and he's in pain. It hurt me." Powerful words for both a powerful player and man. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt
