Gregg has microfracture knee surgery

OWINGS MILLS -- Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh expressed optimism that nose guard Kelly Gregg will be able to play next season after undergoing season-ending microfracture surgery Tuesday on his left knee. The veteran defensive lineman will be placed on injured reserve after Dr. James Andrews operated on him at his Alabama office.

Scouts auditioned a few defensive linemen at the Ravens' training complex to potentially take Gregg's place on the active roster.

"He's had surgery on his knee to try to get that thing healing a little bit," Harbaugh said during his weekly WBAL radio program. "He is out for the season unfortunately, but we think with this surgery he's got a chance for his career to be fine and he'll be back next year. That's what we're hoping for."

Meanwhile, offensive tackle Adam Terry has a tear in his lateral meniscus of his right knee as well as a strain.

He's regarded as questionable for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Four-time Pro Bowl tackle Willie Anderson would start if Terry can't go.

"It's something you can play with," Harbaugh said. "It's just going to be a matter of dealing with the pain. It's going to be whether he can function with that."

Cornerback Fabian Washington dislocated his right shoulder in a 13-10 loss against the Tennessee Titans, but hasn't been ruled out for the Colts game. If Washington is out, then the Ravens would turn toward reserve cornerbacks Frank Walker and Corey Ivy.

"There's a good chance he'll be able to play, but it's not certain," Harbaugh said. "We'll see how fast it recovers."
