OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens starting cornerback Samari Rolle underwent neck surgery this week and will be out at least a month.
Rolle suffered a stinger in a 28-10 victory Sept. 21 over the Cleveland Browns after intercepting a pass in the fourth quarter.
"It was all kind of related from a stinger perspective. That was what he felt, the tingling in the shoulder, too," Raven coach John Harbaugh said Friday. "We have a time frame on him; it's maybe a month plus. He had a surgery this week on his neck to clean things up in there."
Fabian Washington will start his second consecutive game in Rolle's place Sunday against the undefeated Tennessee Titans in Baltimore. A former first-round draft pick, the Ravens acquired Washington in April in a trade from the Oakland Raiders.
