Fabian Washington back from injury
WESTMINSTER, Md.--After various injuries at cornerback, the Baltimore Ravens are finally getting positive news at the position.
Washington last played on Nov. 22, 2009 when he tore his ACL against the Indianapolis Colts. He spent the entire offseason rehabbing the injury and is expected to be key to Baltimore's secondary now that top cornerback Domonique Foxworth (knee) is out for the season.
Washington has practiced in training camp but was inactive in last week's preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers. Teammate Lardarius Webb (knee), another projected starter, is still not ready for contact.
The Ravens are hoping both starting cornerbacks will be ready for Week 1. But with Washington's return, it's confirmation that at least one healthy starter should be prepared for the regular season.
