Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb might have torn the ACL in his right knee Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Webb banged his knee in a first-quarter collision with Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. Webb remained prone on the field for several minutes before being helped to the sideline.

The team originally labeled the injury a ''sprain,'' but after Baltimore's 31-29 victory, coach John Harbaugh painted a potentially darker picture.

''Lardarius Webb does not look good right now,'' Harbaugh said. ''It's a potential ACL. We've got a problem there. We don't know for sure, but that's what it looks like right now.''

Ravens safely Bernard Pollard added, ''That's what happens in this game. You hate to see a guy like that go down because he's worked his tail off. Our prayers are with him to get a speedy recovery, but the next man has to step up.''

Now in his fourth season, Webb has one interception, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery in six games this year.

In the third quarter, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was removed with a left foot injury. He carried 14 times for 93 yards but did not get the ball after the 11-minute mark of the third period.

The extent of the injury was not immediately known.

''I don't know what the word is yet,'' Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.
