The Ravens’ highly entertaining 31-29 win over the Cowboys earlier this afternoon could come at a severe cost. What, exactly? Well, maybe Ray Lewis’ career.
Lewis left the game in the fourth quarter, and NFL.com’s Jeff Darlington is reporting that the Ravens fear he may have a torn triceps, an injury that would immediately end his season. For the 37-year-old Lewis, this could be far more than a season-ending injury, as there’s a very realistic chance that at his age and at his position, a devastating injury like this one will signal the end of a highly-decorated career.
We’ll update this post as more information becomes available, but for now know this: the Ravens could abruptly go from being a feared fantasy defense to one of the best units to stream against, a strategy that will especially apply to their run defense. And, well, more broadly the Ravens are absolutely screwed defensively. Just fried.
Avoid the kitchen, Ravens fans. There are sharp objects in there, and many ways to burn yourself.
UPDATE: Still waiting for word on Lewis, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Webb’s ACL is indeed torn. Stay safe out there, Baltimore.
