It appears Sunday’s win cost the 5-1 Ravens their top cornerback, and also quite possibly the longtime heart and soul of the defense.
Following up the report of Lardarius Webb’s potentially season-ending injury, NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington hears that linebacker Ray Lewis may have suffered a torn triceps tendon against the Cowboys in Week 6.
Both players will undergo MRI’s on Monday, which could confirm the team’s initial fears. If so, they almost certainly would be placed on injured reserve.
Although Lewis has lost a step at age-37, he’s still a quality run defender and source of motivation for a unit operating as a shell of its former self.
Without linebacker Terrell Suggs, Baltimore’s defense has failed to generate consistent pressure and, even with Webb in the lineup, has been susceptible through the air.
We should have the official word within the next 24 hours, but it’s not looking good for the Ravens, who head into a big Week 7 tilt with the Texans.
