Saints placed CB Fabian Washington (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.
The injuries continue to pile up for Washington. The former first-round pick tore his ACL in 2009 and missed the majority of training camp this year with a hamstring injury. There wasn't much room for Washington in the Saints' deep and talented secondary anyway. Thu, Sep 1, 2011 08:59:00 AM

Saints signed CB Fabian Washington to a one-year contract.

Washington is a depth signing for a Saints team that will boast one of the league's top secondaries this season. He has missed a total of 12 games with injury the past three seasons, but if healthy could be an asset behind Jabari Greer, Tracy Porter, and Patrick Robinson. Washington was the 23rd overall pick in the 2005 draft. He has blazing speed and should make the final 53.

Free agent CB Fabian Washington has been contacted by the Vikings, Bucs and Jets.

Washington has starting experience but projects as more of a nickel corner at this point in his career. The oft-injured former first-round pick would be an inexpensive fallback option in the corner market.

Free agent CB Fabian Washington understands he might have to accept a nickelback job with his next team.

Impending free agent CB Fabian Washington does not expect to be back with the Ravens in 2011.

"What am I going to do here? I don't know what I'm going to do," Washington said. He played sparingly down the stretch after losing his starting job to Josh Wilson at mid-season. Washington has been an injury-prone disappointment since the Ravens traded for him in 2008.

Ravens CB Fabian Washington pulled his left hamstring in Thursday's practice and will be a game-time decision for Week 14.

"Fabian was playing OK," said coach John Harbaugh. "And Fabian's going to be fine. Fabian's a big part of what we're doing here." Washington anticipates starting in Week 10 against Atlanta.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh won't commit to LCB Fabian Washington as a starter after Washington was benched in Week 7.

Ravens LCB Fabian Washington (ACL surgery) came out of his preseason debut on Saturday feeling "great."

It was Washington's first game action since tearing his ACL last November. "He looked crisp, he looked good," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "He didn't have any ill-effects that I know of. He kind of looked like the old Fabian." This is huge for the Ravens' secondary, which has been ravaged by injuries.

Ravens LCB Fabian Washington has been fully medically cleared after tearing his ACL last season.

Washington will start the second exhibition game, playing "at least" a quarter. He'll open the season as Baltimore's top corner, though the secondary remains a big concern. The Ravens need their pass rush to step up.

Coach John Harbaugh has previously conceded that he doesn't expect Washington to be 100 percent early on during the season.
