Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced that cornerback Lardarius Webb would have sports hernia surgery now that the season is finished. Webb drew praise from Harbaugh for playing the second half of the year through, being listed on the injury report with an abdominal injury each week. Playing through a sports hernia comes down to being able to deal with an immense amount of pain and with a position like corner, every play had to be a battle. There have been a number of players that have had to go on injured reserve as a result of them in the past.
Webb will not have surgery to address the problem and should have no problem being ready for offseason workouts. He battled through this after coming back from an ACL tear, so Webb is just looking to be able to play healthy. Webb was able to get better as the season went on at least in regards to his knee getting better and better. The 5 year veteran from Nicholls State finished the season with 63 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 23 passes defended, and 2 interceptions.
