Last night, Webb was optimistic about his chances for playing on Sunday, despite suffering turf toe last week. However, the 26-year-old cornerback acknowledged today that there’s a possibility he may have to sit out the primetime contest against San Diego, according to Dan Kolko of MASNSports.com.

“I hope not. I’m doing everything I can do to get back on the field, Webb said. “I’m going to treatment right now. I hope not. I don’t want to. It would hurt me if I’m on the sidelines and somebody else is playing. The last time I did that was my rookie year when I had an ACL and I couldn’t get back on the field. This isn’t an ACL. It’s really going to take a lot to keep me off the field right now.”

The Ravens have been decimated by turf toe this season, as starting left guard Ben Grubbs and All-Pro middle linebacker Ray Lewis have both missed significant time due to the injury.

If Webb isn’t able to give it a go Sunday night, rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith would likely fill-in and start in Webb’s place.
