OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Nearly everything went right for the Baltimore Ravens in their 37-7 demolition of the St. Louis Rams on Sunday except for another blow to an already-depleted secondary.
Backup safety Haruki Nakamura injured the PCL in his right knee during the first quarter of action in St. Louis and did not return. Results of an MRI were not available when head coach John Harbaugh addressed the media on Monday afternoon, but the team is optimistic about the versatile defensive back’s prognosis.
“It looks promising in terms of him being able to come back [in] maybe a month or so,” Harbaugh said.
The Ravens will discuss the possibility of adding another safety, but Harbaugh mentioned the versatility of cornerback Chris Carr as well as starting corner Lardarius Webb, who are both capable of playing safety. Nakamura has been an invaluable member of the secondary with Carr, Jimmy Smith, and Domonique Foxworth battling injuries at the start of the season. The fourth-year safety has played as the nickel on a number of occasions when a fifth defensive back comes on the field in passing situations.
Harbaugh was unsure of the status of Foxworth and wide receiver Lee Evans for this week’s game against the Jets. Foxworth was inactive despite practicing all week as he continues to work his knee back to full health while Evans was ruled out for Sunday’s game with a lingering ankle injury.
“We’ll just have to see how it goes this week and see where they’re at,” Harbaugh said. “[We’ll] probably watch and see if they can practice or not. If they go out and practice, how does it respond the next day? We’ll just have to see.”
Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe left Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury and is considered day to day, and the team will see how he fares this week before making a decision on his status for the Jets.
