Ravens cornerback Fabian Washington will play in Saturday’s preseason game against the Washington Redskins, Head Coach John Harbaugh confirmed Wednesday.

It will be Washington’s first game since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament on Nov. 22 last year against the Indianapolis Colts.

“I’m excited,” Washington said. “I think I’m going to step on the field this Saturday. I can test [my knee] out on some grass.”

Washington has been fully practicing for the past couple weeks, but didn’t play in the Ravens’ first preseason game against the Carolina Panthers at M&T Bank Stadium because he didn’t want to risk reinjuring his knee on the new, somewhat soft turf. The Redskins’ FedEx Field has natural grass.

Cornerback Chris Carr’s (hamstring) status is still unknown. He said he will judge whether he feels ready to play Saturday after he fully practices Thursday. Carr lobbied to play against the Panthers after he was declared inactive, but didn’t stay in long.

“Last week playing in the game, that first play kind of hurt a little bit and I kind of got a little over-anxious a little bit,” Carr said. “When you’re out here you don’t want to feel like you’re milking it. You want to practice, you want to play. I felt really good today.”
