Washington Out For Season

Baltimore Sun :

Cornerback Fabian Washington will miss the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, the second major injury of the season suffered by the Ravens.

Washington, who was using crutches after the game, was scheduled to undergo a magnetic resonance imaging exam sometime Monday, and he confirmed the torn ligament via Twitter.

“Thanx for all of your support,” wrote Washington, who is in the final year of his contract. “Yes, I do have a torn ACL. But I’ll get through this. Go Ravens.”

Forty-five minutes before Washington’s “tweet,” the Ravens were preparing for the worst.

Rookie Lardarius Webb – who was the primary nickel back Sunday for the first time this season – could make his first start Sunday against the Steelers. But coach John Harbaugh declined Monday to name a starter.

Of course just when Washington was starting to pick up his game he is felled by a season ending injury. This does the leave the door open to Lardarius Webb getting his first start of the season. Webb is coming off another solid effort in helping limit Dallas Clark to just one catch last Sunday.
