WESTMINSTER, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens have placed cornerback Walt Harris on injured reserve.

Harris was signed in early July after missing all of last season because of a torn ACL he suffered in 2009 offseason workouts while with San Francisco.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Harris was also battling an Achilles injury.

"Walt was really disappointed that he wasn't able to get healthy and practice," said Harbaugh on Friday. "He's close, he was coming off the injury from last season. He just knows he's not there yet."

Harris played three seasons with the 49ers after also spending time with Chicago, Indianapolis and Washington in his 13-year career.

The 35-year-old veteran was a Pro Bowl pick in 2006, his first season with San Francisco, after registering a career-high eight interceptions. He picked off three passes in 16 games during the 2008 campaign.

Harris was selected by Chicago with the 13th overall pick of the 1996 draft and played six seasons with the Bears before spending two years with Indianapolis and two with Washington.

In 193 NFL games, including 173 starts, Harris has 35 interceptions for 332 yards with four touchdowns.

The Ravens, who also lost cornerback Domonique Foxworth for the season earlier in camp because of a torn ACL, filled Harris' roster spot by signing defensive back Chris Hawkins.
