The Ravens, Lardarius Webb, and fans have been waiting patiently for weeks to see top cornerback Lardarius Webb make his 2014 debut.  And it looks like this week may just be the week, as Webb is listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.  It’s the first time this season that Webb has been probable, as the first two games saw him listed as questionable.

Rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan is officially listed as doubtful as he battles a meniscus injury in his knee that is expected to keep him out for 1-2 games.  Jernigan is highly unlikely to play for at least the next two weeks as he attempts to rehab his injury while avoiding surgery.

Bernard Pierce is officially listed as questionable after suffering a thigh injury.  Pierce’s injury was a bit of a surprise on Wednesday, which was the first anyone had heard of the injury.  If he is unable to go Sunday, expect to see lots of Justin Forsett and an increased role for rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro.

Other than Webb, the good news is every player who missed time during the week other than Pierce and Jernigan are listed as probable.  This includes Joe Flacco (illness), Asa Jackson (concussion), and Eugene Monroe (knee).

For the Browns, running back Ben Tate (sprained knee) is out, and tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) and linebacker Barkevious Mindgo (shoulder) are questionable.
