Harbaugh not pleased with the Ravens' fundamentals

Cornerback Chris Johnson has been cut, the Ravens announced Monday before practice.

A 10-year veteran, Johnson joined the Ravens last season after Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith suffered injuries. Johnson was battling Chykie Brown for the No. 4 cornerback, but Johnson had been bothered by migraine headaches during camp. Johnson missed about a week of practice and last week’s preseason game against the Falcons.

The seven cornerbacks on the roster are Brown, Webb, Smith, Corey Graham, Asa Jackson, Moe Lee, and Marc Anthony. However, Jackson will be suspended the first eight games of the regular season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy.
