Foxworth, who tore his ACL prior to the start of training camp in 2010, had repeatedly stated this season that he didn’t feel completely comfortable with the surgically-repaired knee and clearly his play suffered. After struggling in week two at Tennessee, the Ravens decided to make Foxworth inactive for week three’s game in St. Louis against the Rams.

The question now is: has Domonique Foxworth played his last game as a Raven? Prior to the 2009 season, Foxworth, 28, signed a four-year, $27.2 million contract with his hometown team. Next year Foxworth is scheduled to make $5.6 million, a hefty price for a player that hasn’t played in basically two full seasons.

Foxworth’s future with the team is an uncertainty, to say the least. Head Coach John Harbaugh said, “I’d say it’s all up in the air for everybody. I hope he’ll be here next year, too,” according to the Baltimore Sun.

With Foxworth done for the year and rookie Jimmy Smith still recovering from a high ankle sprain, the Ravens are left with five healthy corners: Lardarius Webb, Cary Williams, Chris Carr, and rookies, Chykie Brown and Danny Gorrer.
