Ray Lewis Injury Could Mean End Of Career For Ravens Star Linebacker
By IBTimes Staff Reporter | October 16, 2012 7:50 AM EST
While the Baltimore Ravens might have taken down the Dallas Cowboys in a 31-29 win Sunday, injuries sustained during the game have reportedly sidelined both linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb for the remainder of the season.
According to head coach John Harbaugh, Lewis, who suffered a "full tear" of his triceps muscle, and Webb, who tore his ACL in Sunday's game against Dallas, are both done for the year.
FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported that Lewis had suffered a complete tear of his tricep, an injury that might just end a career of 13 Pro Bowl selections, 10 All-Pro nods, two NFL defensive player of the year awards, a Super Bowl MVP, nearly 1,600-career solo tackles and 41½ career sacks.
Lewis accumulated 14 tackles against the Cowboys before leaving with the injury and 43 on the season, along with a sack.
Webb banged his knee in a first-quarter collision with Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, but remained prone on the field for several minutes before being helped to the sideline.
At 5-1, the Baltimore Ravens travel to Houston to take on the Texans at Reliant Stadium next Sunday, Oct. 21.
